When may the division of child support take collection action against a noncustodial parent?

(1) Chapters 26.18, 26.23, 74.20 and 74.20A RCW authorize the division of child support (DCS) to take actions enforcing and collecting support obligations.
(2) DCS may take collection action against the noncustodial parent's income and assets to collect a support debt even if the NCP is making payments under a support order, unless DCS agrees in writing to limit collection action.
(3) If the NCP fails to make the total support payment under an administrative order when it is due:
(a) The entire support debt becomes due in full; and
(b) The portion of the administrative order requiring periodic payments on the support debt is automatically vacated without modifying the order.
