WAC 388-14A-3135

Late hearings, or hearing on untimely objections to support establishment notices.

(1) For orders established before August 30, 1997, if the noncustodial parent did not timely object to the notice and finding of financial responsibility (NFFR), notice and finding of parental responsibility (NFPR), or notice and finding of medical responsibility (NFMR), only the noncustodial parent may petition for a late hearing, pursuant to WAC 388-14A-3500.
(2) For orders established after August 30, 1997, if neither parent timely objected to the NFFR, NFPR, or NFMR, either the noncustodial parent or the custodial parent may petition for a late hearing, pursuant to WAC 388-14A-3500. See WAC 388-14A-3110 for the time limits for a timely hearing request.
(3) The division of child support (DCS) continues to enforce the order even if a late request for hearing is filed.
(4) If DCS receives the late hearing request within one year of the date of service of the notice, the parent requesting the hearing is not required to show good cause to have a hearing on the merits of the notice.
(5) If DCS receives the late hearing request more than a year after the date of service of the notice, the parent requesting the hearing must show good cause why the hearing request was not timely. WAC 388-14A-1020 contains the definition of good cause.
