Computer records of administrator

  • evidence of authenticity not required in support proceedings
  • evidentiary effect


In any proceeding to establish, enforce or modify a support obligation, extrinsic evidence of authenticity is not required as a condition precedent to the admission of a computer record of the administrator that may reflect the employment records of a parent, the support payment record of an obligor, the payment of public assistance, the amounts paid, the period during which public assistance was paid, the persons receiving or having received assistance and any other pertinent information, if the record bears a seal purporting to be that of the administrator and is certified as a true copy by original, electronic or facsimile signature of a person purporting to be an officer or employee of the administrator. Records certified in accordance with this section constitute prima facie evidence of the existence of the facts stated therein.


To the extent permitted under federal and state law, obligors and obligees, and their attorneys, may obtain copies of such records upon request made to the administrator. [Formerly 23.855; 1989 c.519 §1; 1997 c.704 §23; 1999 c.735 §19; 2019 c.291 §6]
