- Centralized Collections Operation (NCCSCC) – Federal and state laws require that all child support payments be processed at one central location. NCPs and/or their employers can send child support payments to the NCCSCC, which processes and sends these payments to the appropriate custodial parents/payees.
Custodial parents (the person who is seeking child support) are responsible for:
- Responding to all requests for information, appearing for interviews and court hearings, and submitting to paternity testing, if necessary.
- Giving CSS caseworkers any information that they can about the NCP, such as:
- Name and aliases, addresses, telephone numbers, and Social Security numbers
- Current or former employers’ names and addresses
- Divorce, separation, or child support orders
- Income information, such as tax returns, bank accounts, pay stubs, and property records
- Names of friends, relatives, and organizations that could have information.
- Providing the child’s birth certificate (when available) plus any form, letter, or card that indicate parenthood, if paternity is at issue.
- Notifying the CSS office of any changes in their status, such as name, address, custody of child, and the desire for continued services.
- Cooperating with the CSS office. The failure of TANF or Medicaid recipients to cooperate could result in a loss of benefits. Cooperation is required unless good cause exists for not cooperating.
- Staying involved in the case. A team effort produces the best results.
