DISCUSSION:

The purpose of this memorandum is to inform staff of the revisions to the Referral/Information for Child Support Services (CSE-201) form, CSE-201 instructions, and a policy change when Child Support (CS) refers a Temporary Assistance (TA) case for sanction. The most recent revision date of the form is August 2012 (8-12). Revisions include a name change of the form from Child Support Enforcement (CSE-201) to Child Support (CS-201) and the addition of the FSD Intake Center's mailing address at the bottom of the last page of the form.

This memorandum contains information on the following:

PURPOSE OF THE CS-201 FORM

The CS-201 form provides information on the non-custodial parent. The CS-201 is completed and forwarded to CS for TA and MO HealthNet (MHN) cases when caretakers are required to cooperate with CS in the pursuit of child and medical support.

MAILING ADDRESS

Effective immediately, direct all mailings of the CS-201 (or CSE-201) to the FSD Intake Center's mailing address:

At the discretion of the Income Maintenance (IM) Family Support Division (FSD) office, staff may mail the completed CS-201 form to the above address or scan and e-mail the completed CS-201 form to [email protected].

TA SANCTION POLICY CHANGE
