Okla. Admin. Code § 340:25-5-200.3 - Problem-Solving Court Program

Current through Vol. 39, No. 14, April 01, 2022

(a) Oklahoma Department of Human Services Child Support Services (CSS) designates the following process as the problem-solving court program referenced in Section 140 of Title 43 of the Oklahoma Statutes (43 O.S. § 140 ), 21 O.S. § 566.1, and 56 O.S. § 240.10.
(b) When:
(1) a noncustodial parent (NCP) indicates barriers to the payment of child support, CSS staff offers information about available community resources that might assist in removing such barriers; or
(2) a court action is ongoing, CSS requests the court include requirements in the court order for the NCP to work to remove barriers to payment of child support by using available community resources.
(c) CSS requests the court set future court dates as appropriate under the circumstances of the case to review the NCP's compliance with the court's requirements. When a court action is not filed, CSS may file a seek work proceeding per 56 O.S. § 240.10.
(d) When an NCP is complying with the court's requirements:
(1) CSS staff coordinates, within an office and between offices, to find a case management strategy that treats NCP's cases consistently and is most likely to result in a reliable source of support in all of the NCP's cases.
(2) "Complying" means the NCP is following the court's orders to remove barriers to paying support or is otherwise meeting the requirements set out in a seek work order, including disclosing all information about earnings and assets.
