Child support rights are defined by ORS 25.010 as "The right to establish or enforce an obligation imposed or imposable by law to provide support, including, but not limited to, medical support and an unsatisfied obligation to provide support".
There are two ways that a party to a child support order or attorney may determine if child support rights have been assigned to the state:
Case status – This online system will provide the party's names, the assigned child support office, whether the case has an order, and if there is a legal action in progress to establish or modify an order. The party's social security number and date of birth is required to access this information online.
Request by phone or fax – If a child support case exists, the Division of Child Support will respond within 24 hours with case status information or confirmation that a case does not exist. Requests require the names of both parties and their social security numbers if known.
