Require all new applicants to cooperate with Child Support for all minor children in the home with an absent parent. At redetermination, require all participants to cooperate with Child Support for all minor children in the home with an absent parent. See Chapter 4.9.3 (Child Support enforcement referral process).

Consider applicants to be cooperating when the Referral to Support and Collections form DHS-3163B-ENG (PDF) and Cooperation with Child Support Enforcement form DHS-2338 (PDF) are signed and filled out.

Cooperation with Child Support may include:

  • · Establishing paternity.
