NEW YORK STATE CASE REGISTRY FILING FORM:
Information about child support orders must be filed with the State Case Registry by filing a New York State Registry Filing Form. If a party to the order is receiving child support services from the support collection unit (known as a IV-D case), the support collection unit will report the information. A case is receiving support collection services if: 1) the County Department of Social Services (or, in New York City, HRA) is a party to the order because a child is receiving public assistance benefits, Medicaid or is in foster care; or 2) a party has applied for services including collection and enforcement of the support order. If you are unsure whether the case is receiving child support services, contact the court clerk.
You MUST complete and submit the State Case Registry form:
a) if your case involves child support or combined spousal and child support and the Court issues an Income Withholding Order that requires the employer to remit payments to the NYS Child Support Processing Center (SDU); or
b) if the court determines that immediate income withholding is not required by statute and payments are made directly to the custodial party/obligee.
Note: If your support order is generated (or prepared) by Family Court, the court will take care of filing the form, but if your support order is from Supreme Court, you must complete and use the form posted on the Divorce Resources website at: http://www.nycourts.gov/divorce/forms_instructions/case-reg.pdf . The instructions are attached to the form.
You should NOT complete and submit the State Case Registry form:
a) if your case involves spousal support only; or
b) if a party to the order is applying for, or receiving, support services from, a local Support Collection Unit pursuant to the child support program.
If you are required to complete and submit the State Case Registry Form, follow the instructions attached
to the form posted at http://www.nycourts.gov/divorce/forms_instructions/case-reg.pdf
