How does DCS distribute support collections in a nonassistance case?

(1) A nonassistance case is one where the family has never received a cash public assistance grant.
(2) Subject to the exceptions provided under WAC 388-14A-5005, the division of child support (DCS) applies support collections within each Title IV-D nonassistance case:
(a) First, to satisfy the current support obligation for the month DCS received the collection;
(b) Second, to the noncustodial parent's support debts owed to the family;
(c) Third, to prepaid support as provided for under WAC 388-14A-5008.
(3) DCS uses the fee retained under WAC 388-14A-2200 to offset the fee amount charged by the federal government for IV-D cases that meet the fee criteria in WAC 388-14A-2200(1).
