INFORMATION MEMORANDUM

OCSE IM 01- 08

DATE: August 21, 2001

TO: ALL STATE AGENCIES ADMINISTERING CHILD SUPPORT ENFORCEMENT PLANS APPROVED UNDER TITLE IV-D OF THE SOCIAL SECURITY ACT AND OTHER INTERESTED PARTIES

SUBJECT: TEMPO on One-State and Limited Services Interstate Case Processing

BACKGROUND: Over the years, Congress has required States to pass and implement laws to streamline how IV-D agencies can work on their interstate cases. Recent examples include the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA), full faith and credit for past-due child support installments, uniform forms for notice of liens, administrative subpoenas, and interstate income withholding. Now that more IV-D agencies are implementing these laws, they will have additional options on how they may initiate interstate enforcement actions. The challenge facing the State and local Child Support Enforcement agencies is to maximize the benefits from using these interstate enforcement options.

The Office of Child Support Enforcement is pleased to provide you with the attached TEMPO on One-State and Limited Services-Interstate Case Processing. This is another one in the series of Techniques for Effective Management of Program Operations (TEMPO) that provides assistance to IV-D practitioners pursuing interstate enforcement remedies without assistance from another state. We hope it will prove to be a helpful resource for local IV-D practitioners.
