Full Service Cases
Cases with CSS are either opened by referral or through application. Applications can be submitted by a custodial parent or a non-custodial parent. A CSS referral is received when a custodial parent is receiving benefits from Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF) or Medicaid/SoonerCare. Under these conditions, a child support referral is made in order to recoup State costs for services. CSS may also receive referrals from another state, country, or tribal government. These cases are considered full-service cases in which paternity may be established and/or child support established, enforced or modified.
Pass-through or Non IV-D Cases
A pass-through or non IV-D child support case means the case is not open for full services, but that payments are being made through the Centralized Support Registry (CSR), Oklahoma’s Support Distribution Unit (SDU). A pass-through case is built when there is no previous child support case and the Centralized Case Registry (CCR) receives a Summary of Support Order form. If a full service case closes but payments are still being made through the SDU, the case is converted to pass-through status.
A benefit of having a pass-through case with Child Support Services is the recording of any payment received through the CSR.
