UIFSA (Uniform Interstate Family Support Act) is the act that allows for the establishment of paternity, establishment of support and enforcement of an existing order when one party lives in Ohio and the other party lives in another state. This service can be requested by either party. 

The UIFSA unit will ask the party requesting our services to supply information needed to process the case along with copies of certain documents that may apply (birth certificate, divorce decree, support order, financial information, etc.). Once this information is gathered, we will send a petition to the other state's central registry and they will send the case to the agency that has jurisdiction. We then work with that agency in getting the case established or enforced. UIFSA cases do require much paperwork and the whole process can be lengthy.

For more information, contact the agency at 303-740-2073 or 800-528-9511.
