International

OCSE is the U.S. Central Authority for international child support.  We work with states and countries to provide assistance to families seeking support when family members live in different countries.

U.S. states process cases with certain countries under different types of reciprocity arrangements, including:

  • Hague Convention countries — countries that have joined the Hague Child Support Convention, and
  • Foreign reciprocating countries (FRCs) — countries and Canadian provinces that have bilateral arrangements with the U.S. government and have not joined the Hague Convention.

See the list of Hague Convention countries and FRCs below. Click on the country name to access country-specific case processing and payments information.
