OMB No. 0970 - 0085

INSTRUCTIONS FOR LOCATE DATA SHEET

PURPOSE OF THE FORM: The Locate Data Sheet is used for requesting locate information (regarding the parent, employer, wages, assets) or service of process from another State. The requesting jurisdiction completes as much of the form as possible with the information it has.

In addition to the more common data elements specified on the Locate Data Sheet, space is provided to note other locate/asset information particular to the case. For example, information on wages, violence potential, military/veteran status, and relatives may prove useful in working a case.

In the interest of expediting the locate process, use CSENet whenever possible.

Quick Locate. The Locate Data Sheet is used to request "quick locate." You may send the request directly to the responding State's Parent Locator Service. "Quick locate" is useful if a State believes that a noncustodial parent may be in one of several States, but is unsure of which State. If a State intends to use its long-arm jurisdiction to establish or enforce an order, it may choose to use "quick locate" to confirm the noncustodial parent's location.
