of receiving those services, including a listing of available services, fees,

of Child Support will notify the obligee, and the child attending school that
subject to the obligor or chlid attending school's right to request services:
An obligee or applicant for services may
request that support enforcement services no longer be provided. If the obligee
or applicant so requests, and there is no assignment of arrears to the state,
case closure procedures pursuant to OAR 137-055-1120

provided for either the obligee or the state.
A child attending school who is an
applicant for services may, under subsection (1)(a), request that support
enforcement services no longer be provided on his or her behalf. A child
attending school who is not an applicant for services may discontinue all
support enforcement services on his or her behalf by redirecting his or her
support to the obligee under OAR 137-055-5110
(2) In cases where current child support is
not assigned to the state but medical support is assigned to the state, the
obligee may elect to not pursue establishment of a child support obligation

administrator will provide only those services necessary to establish and
enforce an order for medical child support, including establishment of
paternity where necessary.
(3) If a
case has been closed pursuant to this rule, an obligee or applicant may at any
time request the child support case be reopened by completing a new application

reopened or reactivated after it was closed or enforcement of support was
suspended, the administrator may immediately resume enforcement of the case
