What happens if a party makes a timely request for hearing on a notice of support owed?

(1) A party who has been served with a notice of support owed may make a timely or untimely objection to the notice.
(a) A timely request for hearing on a notice of support owed is an objection made within the time limits of WAC 388-14A-3316.
(b) WAC 388-14A-3318 describes what happens when the party files an untimely objection.
(2) When the division of child support (DCS) serves a notice of support owed, DCS sends a notice to payee as provided in WAC 388-14A-3115. The party who receives the notice to payee has the right to object to the notice of support owed.
(3) If either party makes a timely request for hearing, DCS submits the hearing request to the office of administrative hearings (OAH) for scheduling.
(4) OAH sends a notice of hearing by first class mail to all parties at their addresses last known to DCS, notifying each party of the date, time and place of the hearing.
(5) DCS, the noncustodial parent (NCP) and the custodial parent (CP) are all parties to a hearing on a notice of support owed.
(6) A timely request for hearing stops the notice from becoming a final order, but DCS may still enforce those parts of the support obligation listed in WAC 388-14A-3310(12). In addition, any party may request that the administrative law judge (ALJ) enter a temporary support order under WAC 388-14A-3850.
(7) See WAC 388-14A-3320 for general information regarding a hearing on a notice of support owed.
