(a) The Oklahoma Child Support Services (CSS) determines noncooperation in a non-TANF case on the same basis as a Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) case. Oklahoma Administrative Code (OAC) 340:25-5-114 describes indications of noncooperation. When CSS determines noncooperation, CSS closes the case under Section 303.11 of Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
(b) CSS requires a new application to reopen a case closed because of noncooperation. The applicant for services must agree to cooperate with CSS. •
(c) OAC 340:40-7-9 describes the requirement to pursue child support with CSS, as a condition of eligibility, for custodial persons participating in the Oklahoma Department of Human Services (DHS) child care subsidy program. When the noncooperation prevents CSS from providing child support services, CSS initiates case closure action under Section 303.11 of Title 45 of the Code of Federal Regulations. •
