2. Noncooperation determination in non-Temporary
Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) cases.
CSS staff considers the factors listed in OAC 340:25-5-114 in making a

(1) When CSS
updates the CCPU screen with noncooperation and the CP is receiving child care

Adult and Family Services of the noncooperation.
(2) When CSS
determines cooperation is essential in establishing or enforcing child support,
CSS proceeds with case closure per OAC 340:25-5-123. At the annual renewal of the child care
subsidy, the CP is required to submit Form 03EN001E, Application for Child
Support Services, and correct the action that led to the noncooperation. When
the application is received, CSS staff reopens the case, leaving the 'O' in the
noncooperation block on CCPU. When CSS
district office staff determines the CP resumed cooperation, CSS district
office staff changes the block on the CCPU screen to 'Y'.
