11.4.1 International - Reciprocal
While reciprocity is not a main component of the Uniform Intergovernmental Family Support Act (UIFSA), it is required for the recognition and enforcement of support orders from foreign countries.
The United States Department of State in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services may enter into a reciprocal agreement with a foreign country for purpose of child support. In addition, a state may enter into its own reciprocal agreement with another country. In order to see the countries with a reciprocal agreement with the United States or Wyoming, the caseworker will access the federal OCSE web site as shown in Appendix 11.G – Reciprocal Countries.
