CS 817P Satisfaction of Retained Support Judgments

New 08/28/03


The Office of Recovery Services/Child Support Services (ORS/CSS) began working retained support cases on July 7th, 2003.   Prior to this time the ORS Bureau of Investigations and Collections (BIC) worked retained support cases, along with other types of overpayment cases.  In July 2003, BIC investigation cases except for retained support and ORS check fraud cases became the responsibility of the Department of Workforce Services (DWS).  Administrative sum-certain judgments for retained support that were issued by BIC were docketed with the district court clerk’s office and must be satisfied if the obligation is paid in full.  The judgment must be satisfied in each court in which it was abstracted.


The entry of the satisfaction data on the docket row on ORSIS is evidence that the satisfaction was generated.  Since no return copy of the satisfaction is received from the court, there will be no copy of the satisfaction in the case file folder.  If the respondent questions whether a satisfaction was docketed with the court, research the court files for the docket date of the satisfaction and notify the respondent of the docket date.  If there is no satisfaction on record with the court but the case shows that one was completed, generate a new satisfaction and send a copy to the respondent.


The credit bureau will be automatically notified that the judgment has been satisfied when the information is entered on ORSIS.
