5101:12-50-10.2 CSEA's responsibility for income withholding and income deduction.

(A) When the child support enforcement agency (CSEA) determines that the obligor is receiving income from a payor, the CSEA shall issue a JFS 04047, " Order/Notice to Withhold Income for Child and Spousal Support" (rev. 5/2012), within fifteen days of:

(1) Issuing or modifying an administrative support order;

(2) Receiving notice of a change in the obligor's source of income or the CSEA otherwise determining that there has been a change in the source of the obligor's income;

(3) Determining that a modified JFS 04047 is required as the result of an investigation concerning the termination of a support order; or

(4) Locating an obligor following the issuance or modification of the support order.

(B) When the CSEA determines that the obligor has funds on deposit in a financial institution, the CSEA may issue a JFS 04017, "Notice to Deduct Funds for Child and Spousal Support" (5/2012).

(C) When a CSEA issues a JFS 04047 to a payor or a JFS 04017 to a financial institution, the CSEA shall simultaneously issue a copy of the JFS 04047 or the JFS 04017 and the JFS 04048, "Addendum to a Withholding Order" (rev. 11/2009) to the obligor.

(D) To the extent possible, the CSEA shall issue a sufficient number of JFS 04047s and JFS 04017s to provide that the aggregate amount withheld or deducted satisfies the amount ordered for support plus any arrears that may be owed by the obligor under any prior orders that pertain to the same child and obligee.

(E) The CSEA may but is not required to supplement the JFS 04047 or JFS 04017 and JFS 04048 with additional notices or court orders as long as the time requirements of paragraphs (A) and (B) of this rule are met and no additional court hearings are required.
