Ardmore, OK asked in Family Law and Child Support for Oklahoma

Q: I'm wanting to know what "cause stricken" means with DHS pursuing a noncustodial parent who has not paid child support.

The noncustodial parent does not have custody and has not paid anything since it was ordered by court during the divorce finalization.

A: Would have to see what you are taking about but, if a hearing for instance was stricken that means basically that the hearing was cancelled.

A: It sounds like the pursuit of the non custodial parent was cancelled. Contact DHS to find out the status if you are the custodial parent. They will explain it to you.
