Proposed Information Collection Activity; Comment Request

Proposed Projects

    Title: Provision of Services in Interstate Child Support
Enforcement: Standard Forms.
    OMB No.: 0970-0085.
    Description: Public Law 104-193, the Personal Responsibility and
Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, amended 42 U.S.C. 666 to
require State and Territory Child Support Enforcement (CSE) IV-D
agencies to enact the Uniform Interstate Family Support Act (UIFSA)
into State and Territory law by January 1, 1998. Section 311(b) of
UIFSA requires States and Territories to use standard interstate forms.
45 CFR 303.7 also requires CSE IV-D agencies to transmit child support
case information on standard interstate forms when referring cases to
other States and Territories for processing. These forms are expiring
in January 2008 and the Administration for Children and Families is
taking this opportunity to make some revisions as requested by States
and Territories during the 60-day comment period.
    Respondents: State and Territory agencies administering the Child
Support Enforcement program under title IV-D of the Social Security
Act.
