How to Fill Out a Confidential Information Form

To view the current 2008 UIFSA enacted in Oklahoma, view 43 OS Section 601-101 to Section 601-903.

This form is for Child Support (IV-D) Agency use only and is not to be filed with a tribunal or provided to the other party. The Child Support Agency Confidential Information Form is intended to safeguard the privacy of individuals by providing a means to record their personally identifiable information on a separate document that is not served on the parties or filed with a tribunal. The information contained in the form is governed by federal and state safeguarding and privacy requirements.

This form must always be included with a Child Support Enforcement Transmittal #1 request to open a IV-D intergovernmental case and a Child Support Agency Request for Change of Support Payment Location Pursuant to UIFSA § 319. The Child Support Agency Confidential Information Form is needed for most actions being requested on the Child Support Enforcement Transmittal #2 and the Child Support Enforcement Transmittal #3, since most of the identifying information has been removed from those forms. It should be included with the Child Support Enforcement Transmittal #3 if the IV-D case identifier or tribunal number in the assisting state is unknown.

The information on this form may be disclosed only as authorized by law.

If you are not the intended recipient, you are hereby notified that any use, disclosure, distribution, or copying of this form or its contents is strictly prohibited.

Notes for Tribal IV-D Programs:

  • Tribal IV-D programs may choose to use the federal Intergovernmental forms. However, they are not required to use or accept such forms. If you have any questions, contact the tribal IV-D agency directly using the contact information on the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) website.
  • Where forms request a locator code, note that tribal locator codes uniquely identify tribal cases with “9” in the first position, 0 (zero) in the second position, and then a 3-character tribal code defined by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA).
