Child Support Program Manual Transmittal Letter No. 32
August 13, 2008
TO: All Child Support Program Manual Holders
FROM: Helen E. Jones-Kelley, Director
SUBJECT: Administrative Responsibility and Revision of JFS 07699.

The Office of Child Support (OCS) has proposed to rescind the following rule. The rule has been reviewed in accordance with Section 119.032 of the Revised Code, which requires the review of all state agency rules within a five-year period.

Rescinded RuleRescinded Rule TitlePrior Effective Date of RuleEffective Date of Rescission
5101:12‑10‑30.1Administrative Responsibility01/01/20069/01/2008
This rule describes the criteria when a CSEA has administrative responsibility for a case. This rule is being rescinded and replaced by a new rule number but with the same title because more than fifty percent of this rule is being stricken and a comparable amount of new text is being added.

OCS has proposed to adopt the following rule:

Adopted RuleAdopted Rule TitleEffective Date of Adopted Rule
5101:12‑10‑03Administrative Responsibility9/01/2008
This rule describes the criteria when a CSEA has administrative responsibility for a case. Changes from the rescinded rule include: significant revision of the language for clarity; change the rule number to 5101:12‑10‑03 so that the rule is located in the appropriate chapter of the Ohio Administrative Code.
This rule replaces rule 5101:12‑10‑30.1, which is being rescinded as a result of the five year review requirement; is authorized under ORC section 3125.25; and amplifies ORC sections 3125.03.

OCS has proposed to revise the following form:

Revised FormRevised Form TitlePrior Effective Date of FormEffective Date of Revision
JFS 07699Welcome to the Ohio Child Support Program11/20057/2008
This form is issued to the CP/CTR and NCP when the CSEA opens a new support enforcement program case. The form provides brief descriptions of support enforcement program services as well as answers to a number of frequently asked questions about the child support program.
Changes from the prior version include: A typographical error was corrected on page one; a reference to an obligor's option to pay by MasterCard was removed from page two; and language regarding an individual's right to not be discriminated against was added to page three.


When the CSPMTL is published, the CSPM will be updated as follows:

  • A rescinded rule will be moved from the CSPM to the OAC Archive section of the eManuals.
  • An adopted rule will be inserted

The rules and forms in the CSPM can be accessed at:



Paragraph (I)(1) of OAC rule 5101:12-1-01 states that, whenever a program change requires modification of local procedures, the CSEA is required to revise its internal procedural handbook and submit the revision to OCS within thirty days of the revision. The CSEA should carefully review the adopted rule and revised JFS form contained in this CSPMTL to determine whether it requires the CSEA to update its internal procedural handbook.
