Start Preamble

Title: 45 CFR 303.7—Provision of Services in Intergovernmental IV-D; Federally Approved Forms.

OMB No.: 0970-0085.

Description: The Intergovernmental forms were initially approved by OMB in 1988; 45 CFR 303.7 requires child support programs to use the OMB federally-approved forms in intergovernmental IV-D cases unless a country has provided alternative forms as a part of its chapter in a Caseworker's Guide to Processing Cases with Foreign Reciprocating Countries. Additionally, Public Law (Pub. L.) 113-183, the Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act of 2014 amended the Social Security Act to require U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands to enact any amendments to UIFSA “officially adopted as of September 30, 2008 by the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws” (UIFSA 2008). Section 311(b) of UIFSA 2008 requires the States and jurisdictions to use forms mandated by Federal law.

The current intergovernmental forms will expire in February 2017. The revised forms included in this submission to OMB incorporate many of the revisions requested by commenters during the 60-day comment period, which started August 4, 2015 (Federal Register, Volume 80, Number 149, page 46286).

Respondents: State, local, or Tribal agencies administering a child support enforcement program under title IV-D of the Social Security Act.
