SUBJECT: Issuance of the JFS 04048

The Office of Child Support (OCS) has amended the following rule:

Amended RuleAmended Rule TitlePrior Effective Date of RuleEffective Date of Amendment
5101:12‑50‑10.2CSEA's responsibility for income withholding and income deduction.1/1/200811/1/2009
This rule describes the actions a CSEA must take once it has determined that an obligor is receiving income from a payor or has funds on deposit in a financial institution.
The rule has been modified to remove the requirement to issue a JFS 04048 "Addendum Withholding Notice to Parties to a Support Order" to the obligee. The JFS 04048 and a copy of the JFS 04047 will continue to be issued to the obligor each time a JFS 04047 is issued.

OCS has revised the following form:

Revised FormRevised Form TitlePrior Effective Date of FormEffective Date of Revision
JFS 04048Addendum Withholding Notice to Parties to a Support Order2/200211/2009
This form is issued to the obligor and describes reporting requirements described in section 3121.036 of the Revised Code.
All references to reporting requirements for the child support obligee have been removed and the form has been revised for clarity and to meet current OCS design standards.


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

  • Amended rules will be inserted and the previous versions will be moved to the OAC Archive section of the eManuals.
  • Revised forms will be replaced with the amended forms.
