In Oklahoma, child support issues are handled by the Oklahoma Child Support Services (OCSS) – a division of the Oklahoma Department of Human Services. Because of its belief that a child who receives financial support from both of his or her parents is more likely to succeed in life, OCSS utilizes U.S. cooperation with several other countries to enforce child support orders in the case of non-custodial parents living abroad.
