What can I do if I think I'm paying more than the custodial parent is spending for day care or other special expenses for my child?

(1) A noncustodial parent (NCP) who has paid child support under a court or administrative order and believes that day care or special child rearing expenses were not actually incurred in the amount of the order may file an application for an administrative hearing to determine if an overpayment of at least twenty per cent has occurred and how the overpayment should be reimbursed.
(a) A petition for reimbursement may cover a twelve-month period; and
(b) The twelve-month period may be:
(i) A calendar year; or
(ii) The twelve-month period following the anniversary date of the support order; or
(iii) The twelve-month period following an adjudication under this section.
(c) Twelve-month periods under this section may not overlap.
(2) The application must be in writing and at a minimum state:
(a) The twelve-month time period to be considered;
(b) The date of the order requiring the payment of day care or special child rearing expenses;
(c) The amounts required by the court or administrative order for day care or special child rearing expenses for that time period;
(d) The amounts actually paid by the NCP for that time period;
(e) The total amount of day care or special child rearing expenses which the NCP claims the custodial parent (CP) actually incurred for that time period;
(f) The NCP's proportionate share of the expenses actually incurred; and
(g) The amount of reimbursement for overpayment to which the NCP claims to be entitled for that time period.
(3) The effective date of a hearing request is the date DCS receives the written request.
(4) WAC 388-14A-4300 through 388-14A-4304 apply only to amounts paid during the twelve-month period ending May 31, 1996 or later.
