(5) The administrator may initiate modification of a support obligation for a child attending school, as defined in OAR 137-055-5110, but may only order cash child support or cash medical support from a parent previously or currently ordered to pay either cash child support or cash medical support in an amount greater than zero for that child, and only if four or more months of support will be impacted.
