On receiving a copy of a lien filed in another state that is similar to a lien described in section 3123.67 of the Revised Code, a copy of the order for child support that is the basis of the lien, and a copy of the court or administrative determination finding the obligor to be in default under the child support order, the office of child support in the department of job and family services shall examine the lien and the other documents and determine whether the lien is in compliance with federal child support law and regulations. If the office determines that the lien is in compliance, the office shall determine the counties of this state in which is located real or personal property of the obligor that may be subjected to the lien. On making the determination, the office shall send a copy of the lien to the child support enforcement agency of the county in which the obligor's real or personal property is located. The agency shall file the lien with the county recorder of the county in which the agency is located. In recording the lien, if registered land is involved, the county recorder shall take all necessary action required by Chapter 5309. of the Revised Code. Once filed, the lien shall be against all real and personal property, including after-acquired property, of the obligor that is situated in that county. Every court, the office, and each child support enforcement agency shall give full faith and credit to a lien established by an authorized agency of another state that is of the type described in section 3123.67 of the Revised Code.
