Who can receive child support enforcement services from the division of child support?

(1) The division of child support (DCS) provides payment processing and records maintenance services (called "payment services only") to parties to a court order who are not receiving a public assistance grant when:
(a) A Washington superior court order, tribal court order, administrative order, or wage assignment order under chapter 26.18 RCW directs payments through DCS or through the Washington state support registry (WSSR);
(b) The custodial parent (CP) of a dependent child or a noncustodial parent (NCP) requests payment services only, provided that:
(i) An NCP's request for payment services only may not cause a reduction of service from the level of service provided under section (2) of this section; and
(ii) The support obligation is set by a Washington state superior court order, tribal court order, administrative order or wage assignment order, directing payment to DCS or to WSSR.
(2) DCS provides full support enforcement services under Title IV-D of the Social Security Act to custodial parents or noncustodial parents who are not receiving a public assistance grant when:
(a) The custodial parent or former physical custodian of a child requests support enforcement services;
(b) The noncustodial parent of a dependent child requests support enforcement services;
(c) An NCP submits a support order for inclusion in or a support payment to the WSSR, together with an application for support enforcement services;
(d) A public assistance recipient stops receiving a cash grant under the temporary assistance for needy families program;
(e) The department provides medicaid-only benefits to a CP on behalf of a dependent child, unless the recipient of the medicaid-only benefits declines support enforcement services not related to paternity establishment, medical support establishment or medical support enforcement;
(f) A man requests paternity establishment services alleging he is the father of a dependent child; or
(g) An Indian tribe or another state or country requests services in an intergovernmental case.
