Noncustodial Parent Waiver Petition

If the whereabouts of your noncustodial parent are unknown, or if you have extenuating circumstances regarding your situation, complete the Noncustodial Parent Waiver Petition. Note that third-party supporting documentation is required. Refusal of your noncustodial parent to provide information or support does not constitute a waiver.
