RE: Processing Bankruptcies
As discussed in our May conference calls, the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) is changing the way we process bankruptcy notifications to ensure that OCSE, Financial Management Service (FMS) and State databases are synchronized. This new processing method also allows cases to be submitted for other enforcement remedies.
The procedures for processing bankruptcies are attached. These procedures will also be incorporated into the Federal Offset Program User Guide.
