Family Support Columbus Ohio & UIFSA

Family Support Columbus Ohio Child Support Spousal SupportWhat is family support?  It’s not a legal term in Ohio law, but it is included in the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act, or UIFSA.  Family support is a term that is used to mean child support and/or spousal support (alimony).

The UIFSA is a result of federal regulations requiring states to cooperate in establishing child support, and assist in enforcing child support, spousal support and family support orders.  If you are seeking help with interstate family support orders in Columbus, Ohio (Franklin County), you can consult with a child support attorney.  To visit the website for the Franklin County Office of Child Support Enforcement, or CSEA, just place your cursor over the link and click it.

    I live on the Netherlands. I have talked to Rita at CSEA. When I moved here 3 years ago I suspended child support (while I live overseas). I moved here because the hospitals are better for my sick children (stem cell translants) they have been being done for 63 years over here. It is taking longer than we thought. But I can have my child support restarted with a UIFSA. How much will it cost to have a UIFSA?
