Implement Periodic Review Recommendations
Action 5858
General Information
Action Summary This change amends the Child Support Enforcement Program regulation based on a periodic review conducted prior to the pandemic. The Child Support Enforcement Program regulation furthers the Department’s mission of people helping people triumph over poverty, abuse and neglect to shape strong futures for themselves, their families and communities by promoting the efficient and accurate collection, accounting and receipt of support for financially dependent children and their custodial parents, and by furthering the effective and timely enforcement of such support. This action makes technical corrections and updates to the regulation. After periodic review of the Child Support Enforcement Program regulation, at its June 19, 2019 meeting, the Board adopted the Periodic Review Report of Findings (TH-07). This action implements the Decision noted in the TH-07, which states: The agency recommends amending the regulation to enhance consistency with the Code of Virginia and applicable federal law. In addition, the Board may make simple amendments where necessary to the existing regulation for the purpose of clarity and reformatting of information to conform to the requirements of the Form, Style, and Procedure Manual for Publication of Virginia Regulations. The intent is to submit a Fast Track to start the process to make the suggested amendments.
