In an effort to streamline employer responses to each state's specific request for verification of employment, states, employers and OCSE collaborated and created the Standard VOE (VOE) Response form. Recognizing that a standard response to a VOE could not include all the information that each state requests, the response form provides the essential information that states need in order to establish and/or modify child support orders.
States will continue to send their state-specific VOEs, and employers will return the standard VOE response form to those states that agree to accept it. There may be situations when the state child support agency will need to contact the employer for additional information not provided on the standard form.
If you need assistance in completing the form, please contact the state from which the request originated.

Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia.
