Q: Hello,I was trying to get a copy of a child support order in 1990 from a Delaware County Pa from 1990? I’ve have been
getting no answers from DHHS or child support in many counties . The courthouse states it’s a “special request” and they will get back to me.Also stated no arrears if it was not modified before moving after a year? I now live in Ne. and received a letter from DHHS here in Ne. 2 years ago stating they could not find the payee. My son is 27. I informed them of his fathers address and angrily she hung up after getting the information. I’ve heard he was paying it through his taxes. Very odd how court documents could disappear? I do not have these documents. Is there anything I can do to find records that should not have been lost?
Thank you for your time.
You would want to contact the Court or an attorney in the county that you are trying to obtain the records from.
I'm not sure what you mean by "special request." Here in Nebraska, you sometimes have to order the file and then wait a couple of days for older files to be pulled from storage before you can review the file or pay for copies of such. This might be considered a "special request."
