SUBJECT:Revision to the Title IV-D State Plan Preprint; Submission of State Plan Page to Indicate Compliance with Federal Requirements

ATTACHMENT:Attached is a new State plan preprint page which reflects changes made to the State plan provisions of title IV-D of the Social Security Act (the Act) by the Family Support Act of 1988 (P.L. 100-485) and as a result of issuance of final regulations implementing the Statute. This page must be submitted to the appropriate ACF Regional Administrator no later than December 31, 1993.

The attachment consists of:

  • Section 2.12, Procedures to Improve Program Effectiveness, amended to reflect changes made by the final regulations on Review and Adjustment of Child Support Orders, published in the Federal Register on December 28, 1992 (OCSE-AT-92-12) implementing the Family Support Act of 1988 (P.L. 100-485).
  • Section 10-2 of Section 2.12 of the State plan provides that the State has procedures for the periodic review and adjustment of child support orders in IV-D cases, effective October 13, 1993. The State may be granted an exemption from the requirements for review and adjustment of child support orders by the Secretary by demonstrating that implementing the procedure would not increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the State's Child Support Enforcement program in accordance with OCSE-AT-88-19.
