A “quick locate” is a request to another intergovernmental agency to check its automated locate sources to locate a mailing or residential address, employer, assets or income of an alleged father or non-custodial parent.  This intergovernmental request is for Limited Services and is not considered a “full-blown” intergovernmental request for child support services.


When an alleged father or non-custodial parent may be in another state, a case worker in the Wyoming CSE Program will send a Locate Only request to the other state’s Central Registry by completing the appropriate intergovernmental information on POSSE.  For the most part, this request is automatic and handled through the Child Support Enforcement Network (CSENet).  Currently, Wyoming has full or partial agreements with the states listed in Appendix 7.B – CSENet States.
