    Child Support Question

    I currently receive child support from my ex in the state of Texas. I plan on moving to Louisiana soon. Do I need to make any changes to my TX child support case other than a change of address?

    You should contact your local courthouse (or the ones where all the paperwork regarding the child support was filed) and ask them this question. I believe you just need to notify them of your new address since under the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act, UIFSA, every state is required to enforce the child support order of other states.

    According to Department of Child Support Frequently Asked Questions, "Whether you move across the street, to another state or to another country always inform DCSS of your new address. DCSS will tell you what you need to do to make sure you still receive child support services in your new location"
    I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.
