Amended RuleAmended Rule TitlePrior Effective Date of RuleEffective Date of Amendment
5101:12‑1‑20.1Requests for information contained in a person's case record.3/1/20129/1/2012
This rule describes how a child support enforcement agency (CSEA), the office of child support (OCS), or contractor shall disclose information contained in a person's case record upon the request of an individual or entity. Paragraph (B)(5)(c) contained more restrictive limitations than the required limitations found within the Code of Federal Regulations. Those limitations have been removed.


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

  • An amended rule will be inserted and the previous version will be moved to the OAC Archive section of the eManuals.
  • A no change rule will continue with the same effective date.
  • A rescinded rule will be moved from the CSPM to the OAC Archive section of the eManuals.

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 amended rules contained in this CSPMTL to determine whether they require the CSEA to update its internal procedural handbook.
