Title: Provision of Services in Interstate Child Support.

Enforcement: Standard Forms.

OMB No.: 0970-0085.

Description: Pub. L. 104-193, The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) of 1996 amended 42 U.S.C. 666 to require State Child Support Enforcement (CSE) programs to enact the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA) into State law by January 1, 1998. To ensure standardization among the States, section 311(b) of UIFSA requires the States to use standard interstate forms, as mandated by Federal law. 45 CFR 303.7 requires CSE programs to transmit child support case information on standard interstate forms when referring cases to other States for processing. The forms, which promote uniformity and standardization, and expiring and we are taking this opportunity to make minor revisions to them to, among other things, reflect the UIFSA is now the law for all 54 CSE programs.
