(1) When the division of child support (DCS) accepts an intergovernmental case for enforcement of interest under WAC 388-14A-7110
(1), DCS may, at any time after service of a notice of support debt and registration or a notice of support debt and demand for payment, update the amount of interest to be enforced on the case.
(2) To notify the parties to the order that DCS has updated the amount of interest, DCS uses a form called the interest enforcement letter.
(a) The interest enforcement letter is based upon the annual notification of accrued interest from the IV-D agency or an updated interest calculation from a certified public accountant (CPA) or a foreign country's equivalent of a CPA.
(b) DCS sends the interest enforcement letter to the noncustodial parent (NCP), by first class mail to the NCP's last known address.
(3) The interest enforcement letter may advise the NCP of:
(a) The new, updated amount of interest owed for the arrears period; and
(b) The updated total amount of support owed, including interest.
(4) An NCP who objects to an interest enforcement letter must contact the IV-D agency or the CPA or equivalent who did the calculation to dispute the amount of interest claimed.
