WAC 388-14A-3315

When DCS serves a notice of support debt or a notice of support owed, we notify the other party to the child support order.

(1) When the division of child support (DCS) needs to notify the parties that DCS is enforcing a previously entered support order, DCS serves the appropriate notice under WAC 388-14A-3302. DCS may serve a notice of support owed on either the noncustodial parent (NCP) or the custodial parent (CP), as provided in WAC 388-14A-3310.
(2) After DCS serves a notice of support debt or a notice of support owed, DCS notifies the other party to the order by sending a form called the notice to payee, with a copy of the notice that was served, when DCS receives proof of service.
(3) DCS serves a notice of support debt or a notice of support owed on the NCP when DCS is enforcing an order that sets the NCP's support obligation. After service of the notice on the NCP:
(a) DCS sends the notice to payee to the CP, if the CP is the payee under the order; and
(b) DCS sends the notice to payee to the CP and to the payee under the order, if the CP is not also the payee under the order.
(4) DCS serves a notice of support owed on the CP when DCS is enforcing an order that sets the CP's medical support obligation. After service of the notice on the CP, DCS sends the notice to payee to the NCP.
(5) DCS sends the notice to payee by first class mail to the last known address DCS has on file, and encloses a copy of the notice that was served.
(a) In a notice to payee, DCS informs the payee of the right to file a request with DCS for a hearing on the notice of support owed or the notice of support debt within twenty days of the date of a notice to payee that was mailed to a Washington address.
(b) If the notice to payee was mailed to an out-of-state address, the payee may request a hearing within sixty days of the date of the notice to payee.
(6) The effective date of a hearing request is the date DCS receives the request.
