Child Support Enforcement Handbook online, as published by the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement. You can order this booklet from from Pueblo Info Center, but if you have access to a PC, this version should be adequate.
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) So near and dear to those of us that work in the IV-D program... You can do a search by topic, title number or section number, but for both search and to actually view the cites, you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, preferably version 3.0 or above. If you do not have Adobe Reader for viewing .pdf files, you will need to obtain that program first before you can access CFR online. It is a free download; click on the Adobe button below.
If you already have an Adobe Acrobat Reader click here for helpful hints on how to search the CFR using the search function.
Here's a good link for information about UIFSA, the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act. Gives one a good understanding of this law, and if you are dealing with a situation where several states are involved, you need to be aware of how it all relates to your situation. Knowledge is power!
