Article 4B - Child Support Hearing Officers
Section 40-4B-2 - Purpose.
The purpose of the Child Support Hearing Officer Act is to provide the personnel and procedures necessary to insure prompt and full payment by obligated parties of child support obligations for their dependent children and, where applicable, attendant spousal support obligations. It is further the purpose of the Child Support Hearing Officer Act to insure that support payments are made in compliance with federal regulations governing the state's federally mandated program pursuant to Title IV D of the federal Social Security Act requiring a state plan and program to enforce child support obligations. Such compliance will speed up the processing of cases and completion of enforcement actions, thereby reducing expenditures for aid to families with dependent children.
