The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) supports various programs and initiatives that support the location of participants in child support cases, collection of child support payments, enforcement of child support orders, communication between states, and online profile information regarding how counties, states, regions, tribes and international offices operate.

The Federal Parent Locator Service (FPLS) section of the OCSE website addresses various systems, applications, and initiatives. These include:

  • FPLS Information for Federal & State Agencies
    Programs operated by OCSE including the Federal Case Registry, Federal Offset Program, Insurance Match Initiative, Multistate Financial Institution Data Match, National Directory of New Hires, Passport Denial Program, and Query Interstate Cases for Kids.

  • FPLS State Services Portal (SSP)
    The FPLS SSP is a secured internet application that provides real time access to FPLS data.

  • CSENet
    System which receives, validates and transmits standardized child support case transactions among state child support enforcement systems.

  • Employer Services
    Provides all aspects of employer related information and outreach programs.
