CS 159-1 Intergovernmental Review and Adjustment – Modification-Only Request
06/21/05 Revised 06/01/15 Training Completed 07/19/11
The Office of Recovery Services/Child Support Services (ORS/CSS) will no longer provide services for a modification-only request. If the Central Registry Unit (CRU) receives a request from another state for a modification-only, CRU will immediately contact the other state and determine if the other state wants full-services.
If the other state wants full services, a case will be opened on ORSIS. Once the case is opened, ORSIS automatically determines the appropriate function and sub-function and assigns the case to the appropriate team and agent for further action.
If the other state declines full services, CRU will/may provide the other state with the appropriate District Court information for filing a modification-only request per UIFSA. A case will not be opened on ORSIS.
EXCEPTION: If the other state complains, CRU will open a “modification-only” case on ORSIS. CRU will open a case on ORSIS and refer the physical file to the appropriate team for review and adjustment of the child support order.
Likewise, ORS/CSS will no longer send an interstate referral request to another state for a modification-only. If an interstate referral is needed to request another state to review the order and if appropriate, adjust it, the interstate referral will be for full services.
EXCEPTION: If the CP applies directly with the state of Utah or the case is a continuing service case for the CP; e.g., the CP lived in Utah but has since moved to another state or the case is an incoming interstate case and the order was issued by that state.
