OMB 0970-0085

Publication Date: December 26, 2019

States are required to use the federally approved standard intergovernmental forms in intergovernmental actions.  OCSE’s intergovernmental forms matrix specifies which forms to use according to the specific action requested in the case.

(For processing international cases under the Hague Convention, please see alternative forms on OCSE’s Hague Convention forms webpage. For processing cases with Foreign Reciprocating Countries that are not Hague countries, see the appropriate Caseworker Guide on the International webpage.)
