No. SSA either will contact you or has the necessary information from your ex-husband.
As to child support, that's for an expert in that area, and I sincerely recommend that you seek legal counsel before making such a drastic move.
No attorney-client relationship has been established because of the information provided. Seek local counsel to address your particular facts. MJHJ
