(a) (1) A Title IV-D child support, paternity, or medicaid-only case shall remain within the clearinghouse for payment, collection, and distribution purposes even though a custodial parent may elect to close the case with the Office of Child Support Enforcement of the Revenue Division of the Department of Finance and Administration in regard to establishment and enforcement services.

(2) All child support cases once paid through the clearinghouse, Title IV-D and non-Title IV-D clearinghouse cases, shall continue to be paid through the clearinghouse in accordance with this section.

(3) All other child support payments currently being paid through the registry of the circuit court shall continue to be paid through the registry:

(A) Until October 1, 1999, at which time all child support payments made through income withholding shall, by operation of law, be redirected and paid through the clearinghouse;

(B) Until an assignment of child support to the office is made in a case; or

(C) Until such time as the office and the clerk of the court agree that child support payments may be redirected to and paid through the clearinghouse prior to September 30, 1999, but any such agreement shall not be effective until October 1, 1998.
