CSPMTL 42 (Passport Denial and Reinstatement Rule)
Child Support Program Manual Transmittal Letter No. 42
August 21, 2009
TO: All Child Support Program Manual Holders
FROM: Douglas E. Lumpkin, Director
SUBJECT: Passport Denial and Reinstatement Rule

The Office of Child Support (OCS) has proposed to rescind the following rule:

Rescinded RuleRescinded Rule TitlePrior Effective Date of RuleEffective Date of Rescission
5101:12‑50‑34Passport denial07/01/20069/01/2009
This rule describes the passport denial and the reinstatement process. This rule is being proposed for rescission and replaced by a new rule with the same rule number but different 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
5101:12‑50‑34Passport denial and reinstatement9/01/2009
This rule describes the passport denial and the reinstatement process. Changes from the rescinded rule include: clarify when the child support enforcement agency (CSEA) may request the reinstatement of an obligor's denied passport, and clarify the time frame and the process to request the reinstatement of a passport of an obligor.
This rule replaces rule 5101:12‑50‑34, is authorized by ORC section 3125.25 and amplifies ORC section 3125.03.


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  • A rescinded rule will be moved from the CSPM to the OAC Archive section of the eManuals.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 contained in this CSPMTL to determine whether they require the CSEA to update its internal procedural handbook.
