WAC 388-14A-5007

If the paying parent has more than one case, can DCS apply support money to only one specific case?

(1) The division of child support (DCS) applies amounts to a support debt owed for one family or household and distributes the amounts accordingly, rather than make a proportionate distribution between support debts owed to different families, when:
(a) Proportionate distribution is administratively inefficient; or
(b) The collection resulted from the sale or disposition of a specific piece of property against which a court awarded the custodial parent (CP) a judgment lien for child support;
(c) The collection is the result of a contempt order which provides that DCS must distribute the amounts to a particular case; or
(d) An Indian tribe has designated that funds withheld from a tribal benefit should not be applied to all of the cases of a particular noncustodial parent (NCP), but rather should be distributed based on a tribal court order, tribal law, or tribal custom.
(2) If the collection is the result of an automated enforcement of interstate (AEI) transaction under RCW 74.20A.188, DCS applies the payment as provided in WAC 388-14A-5006, even if the requesting state wants the payment applied to a specific case.
