When DCS serves a notice of support debt or a notice of support owed, we notify the other party to the child support order.

(1) When the division of child support (DCS) needs to notify the parties that DCS is enforcing a previously entered support order, DCS serves the appropriate notice under WAC 388-14A-3302. DCS may serve a notice of support owed on either the noncustodial parent (NCP) or the custodial parent (CP), as provided in WAC 388-14A-3310.
(2) At the same time that DCS sends a notice of support debt or a notice of support owed for service on one party, DCS notifies the other party by sending a form called the notice to payee, with a copy of the notice.
(3) DCS serves a notice of support debt or a notice of support owed on the NCP when DCS is enforcing an order that sets the NCP's support obligation. At the same time that DCS sends the notice for service on the NCP:
(a) DCS sends the notice to payee to the CP, if the CP is the payee under the order; and
(b) DCS sends the notice to payee to the CP and to the payee under the order, if the CP is not also the payee under the order.
(4) When DCS serves a notice of support owed on the CP because DCS is enforcing an order that sets the CP's medical support obligation, DCS sends the notice to payee to the NCP.
(5) DCS sends the notice to payee by first class mail to the last known address DCS has on file, and encloses a copy of the notice that was sent for service on the obligated parent.
(a) In a notice to payee, DCS informs the payee of the right to file a request with DCS for a hearing on the notice of support owed or the notice of support debt within twenty days of the date of a notice to payee that was mailed to a Washington address.
(b) If the notice to payee was mailed to an out-of-state address, the payee may request a hearing within sixty days of the date of the notice to payee.
(6) The effective date of a hearing request is the date DCS receives the request.
