SUMMARY: The Office of Personnel Management (0PM) is amending its regulations concerning tIe processing of garnishment orders for

child support and/or alimony. The amendments reflect a fundamental change concerning the garnishment for attorney fees, interest, and court costs. The amendments also revise the garnishment regulations in response to the establishment of the Thrift Savings Fund. In addition, the list of designated agents (Appendix A) has been brought up to date.

EFFECTIVE DATE: February 15,1990.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Murray M. Meeker, (202) 832-5090.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: These amendments follow two separate notices of proposed rulemaking. The first notice of proposed rulemaking was published on April 28, 1980 (51 FR 15787) to implement a revised Justice Department interpretation of the statutory provisions concerning the garnishment for attorney fees. 0PM was initially advised of the revised statutory interpretation by the Civil Division of the Justice Department. Subsequent to the notice of proposed rulemaking, 0PM received additional guidance in an opinion issued by the Office of Legal Counsel (0I'C) of the Justice Department. In addition to the OLC opinion, 0PM received five written substantive comments to the 1988 notice: One comment was received from an employee organization; one comment was received from a Federal agency; one comment was received from a State agency; the fourth comment was received from an official of a State court; and the fifth amendment was received from a family support enforcement organization.

The employee organization's letter stated as follows:

Attorney's fees, interest and court costs are part and parcel of the basic amount(s) awarded as child support payment. Hence, a plaintiff who has successfully proven his (her) right to child support, should have the remedy to recover these items through the same garnishment process that is available for recovering the amount(s) awarded as child support. For this reason. we support the change.

It must be noted that this statement reflects a critical misunderstanding of the amendments. In fact, the amendments provide that attorney fees. interest, and court costs will only be subject to garnishment if they are considered to be actual child support or alimony rather than amounts to be garnished in addition to the child support or alimony. Because of OPM's concern that the proposed changes may have been misunderstood bya significant number of affected persons, 0PM has further revised the definitions of child support and alimony in 5 CFR 581.102(d) and (e). In addition, 0PM has added a new section, 5 CFR 581.307, that provides express clarification and guidance concerning the processing of legal process that includes an award of attorney fees, interest, and/or court costs.

The employee organization also suggested that 0PM further amend the proposed definition of "legal obligation" in 5 CFR 581.102. However, the suggested change would have defeated the purpose of the amendment which is to clarify that there are differences between jurisdictions concerning the garnishment of current (rather than past due) alimony. To say that a "legal" obligation must include current as well as past due alimony and/or child support debts as requested by the employee organization would have been erroneous and contrary to our purpose.

The second comment was from a Federal agency. 0PM has adopted the Federal agency's suggestion that the statement of purpose in 5 CFR 581.101 and the definition of "legal process" in 5 CFR 581.102(fl be amended. The Federal agency also suggested that 0PM revise 5 CFR 581.306(c) to broaden the information that would be provided when Federal employee obligors separate from their Federal employment. 0PM has adopted this suggestion. However, two of the Federal agency's suggestions concerned amendments to 5 CFR 581.301 were not adopted. The Federal agency suggested the establishment of shorter time limits for complying with legal process. 0PM believes that this suggestion is contrary to the statutory time limits already provided in 42 U.S.C. 859(d). The Federal agency also suggested that a sentence be added to $581.301 to expressly state that legal process for child support and/or alimony be given priority "over any other legal process under State law against the same wages." However, except for the Postal Service and a relatively small number of other Federal entities, the Federal Government is not authorized under Federal law to comply with "other legal process [issued] under State law." Thus. we believe that the suggestion would have resulted in more confusion than assistance. It should also be noted that Title 6 (Pay, Leave, and Allowances) of the General Accounting Office's Manual for Guidance of Federal Agencies already includes an order of precedence for disbursement of pay.

The third comment was from a State agency. The State agency correctly discerned that the amendment wold limit the circumstances in which attorneys who represent former spouses

spouses and dependent children would he able to collect their fees, and that as a consequence it might be more difficult for former spouses and children to find adequate legal representation. However, the State agency expressed support for the amendment because "it should allow more children and/or former spouses to receive the full amount of support," unreduced~n instances where the maximum amount is being garnish- by attorney fees.

The fourth comment was received from a State court probation department official who expressed opposition to the proposal, not because it might make it more difficult for former spouses and dependent chIldren to obtain legal counsel, but because of thefear that the amendment would result in an increase in the number of court orders that awarded attorney fees as alimony or child support and a concomitant fear that courts would more frequently order enforcement of such payments through a probation department, thereby increasing the workload of State court probation departments and undercutting the effectiveness of the child

1355 Federal Register/ Vol. 55, No. 10 / Tuesday, January 16,1990 / Rules and Regulations

support enforcement program.

OPM would respond only that the Federal statutory garnishment provisions (42 U.S.C. 662(b) and (c)) expressly refer to the recovery of attorney fees, and that 0PM has been directed to implement these provisions (42 U.S.C. 861(a)(1) and Executive Order No. 12105 (1978)). 0PM is, therefore, obligated to provide guidance to the executive branch concerning the processing of legal process, including the circumstances under which a Federal agency may withhold from a Federal employee obligor's salary an amount for attorney fees, interest, and/ or court costs. While it is anticipated that the amendment will greatly reduce the number of attorney fee awards that will be honored by the Federal Government, 0PM is unable to predict how the amendment will affect the workload of probation departments in various State courts.

The final commentor, a representative of a family support enforcement organization, wrote in support of 5 CFR 581.305(g) which clarifies the fact that there is no requirement under part 581, that parties bringing garnishment actions against the Federal Government comply with the provisions of either the Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act or the Revised Uniform Reciprocal Enforcement of Support Act.

The second notice of proposed rulemaking was published on September 6, 1988 (53 FR 34305). These amendments were made necessary by the enactment of the Federal Employees' Retirement System Act of 1988, Public Law ~335 (June 8,1986), which provided, among other things, for contributions from the salaries of Federal employees for the Thrift Savings Fund. Because all contributions to the Thrift SavIngs Fund, including Government contributions, are subject to garnishment in accordance with 5 U.S.C. 8437(e). the Federal Retirement Thrift Investment Board has recommended that Thrift Savings Fund contributions be excluded in determinIng the obligor's "aggregate disposable earnings". See 5 CFR 581.105(e). The Board's recommendation has been adopted in these amendments.

0PM received only one substantive written comment in response to the second notice of proposed rulemaklng. The comment was from a Federal agency and expressed support for the proposed amendment.

E.0. 12291, Federal Regulation

I have determined that this is not a major rule as defined under section 1(b) of E.O. 12291, Federal Regulation.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

I certify that these regulations will not have significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities because their effects are limited primarily to Federal employees.
