This section contains the following sub-sections:
  • Central Registry
  • Establishment
  • Enforcement
  • Modification 
  • Closure


When a state does not have jurisdiction to proceed, the case will become a two-state case.  All of the action will take place in the responding state where the responding state has jurisdiction to issue or enforce a child support order.  The Wyoming CSE Program is required to provide the same IV-D services for incoming intergovernmental cases as it does for intrastate cases.
