Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) allows an order to be established or enforced in a state where the payer lives.
If you have a Michigan order and all enforcement efforts have been exhausted, you can contact the Friend of the Court Office and request that a UIFSA request be sent to the payer's state.
Other State Order
If your order was issued by another state, and one or both parties now reside in Michigan, you may contact the State of Michigan Office of Child Support and request how you can have the order registered in the State of Michigan. The appropriate division at the State of Michigan Office of Child Support may be reached by calling 866-540-0008.
If you do not have a court order, and the other party resides in another state, you can contact the State of Michigan Office of Child Support and request that a referral be made to the Child Support Division of the Prosecuting Attorney's Office for establishment of a child support order. The appropriate division at the State of Michigan Office of Child Support may be reached by calling 866-661-0005
Please note that we must be able to verify an address for the payer in order to pursue a UIFSA request for you.
