We highly recommend that you keep good child support records of your case. Keeping good solid records will keep you informed of certain changes that might take place. Being prepared will help you if you need these records down the line.
If you are ever taken to court it will be up to YOU to provide this information. This may save you money in attorney fees if you ever need to go to court.
It will result in less work for your lawyer which should mean lower retainer rates. You are entitled to your records so keep them at your disposal. Here ate two ways to obtain your child support records.
When attempting to obtain your records you can contact your local agency by Phone.
Both the obligor/obligee can contact a case worker to obtain their records. Be sure to have your case number and social security number available. If you do not know your case worker's name ask the operator for it.
You should always know the name and phone number of your case worker. It’s also recommended that you check in every few months because sometimes there is a rotation in case workers within the system.
This has happen to me several times, so I now this to be true. Every state and county is different, but it's still a good practice to check every now and then.
When attempting to obtain your records you can contact your local agency by email.
Another good way to contact your case worker is by email. This is a new way of communicating with child support. By contacting your case worker by email you always have documented proof of conversations.
This is a great way to communicate. Just be sure he or she responds back. They still receive tons of phones calls, so emailing is still new to them too.
After requesting your records, it may take anywhere from 3-5 business days to receive them by mail. Mailing times does vary, so check your local office for correct mailing times. You should request a copy of your records every six months to a year.
If you don’t keep good accurate records you risk the chance of having inaccurate information added to your case. This can cause major problems down the line, so be sure to regularly have your child support records on hand.
