A. 1. The Child Support Enforcement Division of the Department of Human Services shall maintain a central case registry on all Title IV-D cases and all child support orders established or modified in this state after October 1, 1998. Title IV-D cases are cases in which child support services are being provided under the state child support plan as provided under Section 237 of Title 56 of the Oklahoma Statutes.
2. In Title IV-D cases, the case registry shall include, but not be limited to, information required to be transmitted to the federal case registry pursuant to 42 U.S.C., Section 654A.
3. In cases in which child support services are not being provided under the state child support plan as provided under Section 237 of Title 56 of the Oklahoma Statutes and in which a child support order is established or modified in this state after October 1, 1998, the case registry shall include, but not be limited to, information required to be transmitted to the federal case registry pursuant to 42 U.S.C., Section 654A, and information from the support order summary form provided for in Section 120 of Title 43 of the Oklahoma Statutes.
B. 1. All orders entered after October 31, 2001, which establish paternity or establish, modify or enforce a child support obligation shall state for all parties and custodians subject to the order:
a. an address of record for service of process in support, visitation and custody actions, and
b. the address of record may be different from the party's or custodian's physical address.
2. The address shall be maintained by the central case registry. The order shall direct that any changes in the address of record shall be provided in writing to the central case registry within thirty (30) days of the change. The address of record is subject to disclosure to a party or custodian upon request pursuant to the provisions of this section and rules promulgated by the Department of Human Services. The Department of Human Services may refuse to disclose address and location information if the Department has reasonable evidence of domestic violence or child abuse and the disclosure of such information could be harmful to a party, custodian or child.
C. 1. All parties and custodians ordered to provide an address of record to the central case registry as specified in this section may, in subsequent child support actions, be served with process by regular mail to the last address of record provided to the central case registry.
2. Proof of service shall be made by a certificate of mailing from a United States Post Office, or in child support cases where services are being provided under the state child support plan, by a certificate of mailing from the child support representative.
D. The Department of Human Services shall promulgate rules as necessary to implement the provisions of this section.
