I don't have a court order. Can the Child Support Enforcement (CSE) Program help me?
You can work with your state or local CSE office to try to establish a child support order. State websites usually give addresses and telephone numbers for local offices. Links to the state CSE websites are at: http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/cse/extinf.htm#exta
The CSE agency will need to find out if paternity has been established and if you know where the other parent lives and works.
If there is not enough information to identify the parent, the CSE agency may not be able to establish an order. Give your caseworker as much as you can of: his/her full name; where and when he/she was born, and what his/her parents' names are. Your case worker may be able to find the Social Security Number which is an important tool for finding someone.
