(1) For custodial parents receiving public assistance, there are two kinds of good cause granted by the community services office (CSO):
(a) When the CSO determines that support establishment or enforcement cannot proceed at all because of a risk of danger to the custodial parent (CP) or children, this is called good cause level A.
(b) When the CSO determines that support establishment or enforcement can proceed without input from the CP, but that good cause exists for the CP not to cooperate with DCS, this is called good cause level B.
(2) See WAC 388-422-0020
for how the CSO grants good cause.
