Q: My childs father is residing in the state of michigan & im persuing child support how can i locate him im in california
One easy thing you can do right away is to open a case with the California Department of Child Support Services. DCSS will initiate enforcement proceedings and track the person through Social Security records and the like. If they can't help you, I recommend that you hire an investigator to perform a person search.
In the county where I practice, San Diego, you can initiate your DCSS case by filling out an on-line application. Search for the DCSS office in your county.
Once you have opened a case with the Department of Child Support Services they will assign it to their INTERSTATE division. Those are the lawyers you will want to deal with.
If they can't find him, because he is unemployed or working for a cash business you could call a local Michigan attorney such as Denise Alter, whom I've worked with before, to hire a local detective to track him. I've used DARE investigations in Michigan with ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL results. I was tracking an ex-wife who wanted to hide, but the men and women at DARE investigations, got her.
