Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

There is a webservice that receives osm_id child nodes and parent node with a osm_id? At least at the level of administrative division?

Example: from the osm_id of Utah, i want to find the id of the counties and the id of U.S. nation.

Many Thanks

OSM objects do not have a strict parent/child hierarchy like the one you describe.

If you want to find the administrative areas that a place belongs to, you can use Nominatim, and in particular the free MapQuest Open instance.
