Current through Bulletin No. 2021-18, September 15, 2021
The following state regulations pages link to this page.
State regulations are updated quarterly; we currently have two versions available. Below is a comparison between our most recent version and the prior quarterly release. More comparison features will be added as we have more versions to compare.
(1) ORS/CSS will enforce tribunal-ordered current support commencing with the month that one of the following occurs:
(a) ORS receives an Application for Child Support Services containing sufficient information to open a IV-D services case;
(b) A parent or guardian begins receiving IV-A cash assistance or Medicaid benefits for a child in his or her care; or,
(c) An intergovernmental transmittal is received requesting enforcement services on behalf of an intergovernmental agency.
(2) ORS/CSS will enforce arrears which accrue while there is an open IV-D services case. Enforcement of accrued arrears will continue until the IV-D services case is closed in accordance with federal regulations found in 45 CFR 303.11 or closed at the request of the applicant for child support services. When the IV-D services case is closed, ORS/CSS will remove any remaining debt balances from ORSIS.
(3) ORS/CSS will enforce support arrears that are determined by a judicial court in the following circumstances:
(a) If a determination of arrears is issued while there is an open IV-D services case and submitted to ORS/CSS for enforcement on the existing case;
(b) If a determination of arrears is issued within one year (365 days) prior to the date the ORS/CSS office receives an Application for Child Support Services which contains sufficient information to open a IV-D services case, ORS will enforce the arrears balance remaining due as reported by the applicant for services.
(c) If a determination of arrears is issued during a time period when there is not an open IV-D case with ORS/CSS and more than one year (more than 365 days) has elapsed prior to the application timeframe described above, ORS/CSS will not enforce on any remaining balance of those arrears. The amount remaining due on those arrearages must be adjudicated and determined before ORS/CSS will begin enforcement actions.
