How to obtain a release of certification for noncompliance.

(1) After the division of child support (DCS) has certified a noncustodial parent (NCP) to a licensing entity for noncompliance, the NCP may obtain a release from DCS if one of the following occurs:
(a) NCP pays the support debt in full, in which case DCS withdraws the notice of noncompliance;
(b) NCP enters into a payment agreement under WAC 388-14A-4520;
(c) DCS confirms that the NCP receives GAU, GAX, TANF or SSI;
(d) DCS confirms that the NCP is currently incarcerated at a state or federal correctional facility;
(e) The prosecuting attorney determines that the NCP is substantially complying with a contempt repayment agreement and recommends release;
(f) DCS receives any type of recurring payment, including but not limited to:
(i) Employer payments;
(ii) Unemployment compensation;
(iii) Labor and industries benefits;
(iv) Social security benefits;
(v) Retirement account garnishments;
(g) DCS believes that release of the certification for noncompliance will facilitate the NCP seeking employment, modification of the child support order(s), or compliance with the current order(s);
(h) DCS certified the NCP because the NCP failed to make a timely objection to the notice of noncompliance and:
(i) The NCP filed a late request for hearing; and
(ii) The final administrative order entered under WAC 388-14A-4530 contains a finding that the NCP made a good faith effort to comply with the order and establishes a payment schedule.
(2) If the NCP and DCS are unable to reach a payment agreement that would lead to release of the certification, the NCP may request a conference board under WAC 388-14A-6400.
(3) By signing a payment agreement with DCS, the NCP waives the administrative hearing right associated with any notice of noncompliance under WAC 388-14A-4505 which was served before the agreement was signed.
(4) DCS retains the right to reinstate the suspension action if the NCP meets the conditions of reinstatement but:
(a) Fails to follow through in a timely fashion with any verbal or written agreement made with DCS; or
(b) Fails to comply with the payment schedule contained in an administrative order entered under WAC 388-14A-4530.
(5) DCS may reinstate the suspension action at any time after releasing the certification, as long as the NCP's case still meets qualifications for certification.
(6) Unless the NCP pays the support debt in full, DCS is not required to withdraw the notice of noncompliance.
(7) DCS must provide a copy of the release to any licensing entity to which DCS has certified the NCP.
(8) The NCP must comply with any requirements of the licensing entity to get the license reinstated or reissued.
