Does DCS accept an application from someone who is not a resident of Washington state?

(1) If you are not a resident of the state of Washington but you are applying for services, you must swear or affirm that there is not an open IV-D case in another state.
(2) The division of child support (DCS) may decline the application for nonassistance support enforcement services if:
(a) DCS already has an open case for you which was opened at the request of another state; or
(b) Neither the custodial parent nor the noncustodial parent reside, work, or own any assets in the state of Washington.
(3) If you are a custodial parent residing in a foreign reciprocating country (FRC), either you or the child support agency of your country may request intergovernmental child support services from DCS. As provided under 42 U.S.C. 654 (32)(C):
(a) No formal application for services is required; and
(b) DCS does not assess costs against either the FRC or the custodial parent.
(4) See WAC 388-14A-7660 regarding costs assessed against the noncustodial parent in an intergovernmental case where the initiating jurisdiction is an FRC.
