Utah Admin. Code R527-330-2 - Posting Priority of Payments Received

Current through Bulletin No. 2021-18, September 15, 2021

The Office of Recovery Services shall determine to which debt payment will be credited in instances where the obligor has more than one case, and the obligor has not expressed his intention.

For Child Support Services cases, if the obligor expresses intent, the payment shall be credited to the case indicated. When the obligor has not expressed his intention, the Office of Recovery Services/Child Support Services (ORS/CSS) shall pro-rate payments, other than payments received from the Federal tax refund intercept program, among all of the obligor's current support obligations. Once the current support obligations have been met, a payment shall be split equally among all of the obligor's child support cases with arrears.

A payment credited to a case with arrears shall be applied to the oldest debt, and arrears owed to the family shall be paid before arrears owed to the State according to the priority specified in 42 USC Sec. 657.
