Mississippi Code Title 43. Public Welfare § 43-19-59. Interstate enforcement;  use of high-volume, automated means

(1) The Department of Human Services, as the Title IV-D child support enforcement agency of this state, shall use high-volume automated administrative enforcement, to the same extent as used for intrastate cases, in response to a request made by another state to enforce support orders, and shall promptly report the results of such enforcement procedure to the requesting state.

(2) In this section, “high-volume, automated administrative enforcement” means the use of automatic data processing to search various available state data bases, including, but not limited to, license records, employment service data, and state new hire registries, to determine whether information is available regarding a parent who owes a child support obligation.

(3) The department may, by electronic or other means, transmit to another state or receive from another state a request for assistance in enforcing support orders through high-volume, automated administrative enforcement, which request:

(a) Shall include such information as will enable the state to which the request is transmitted to compare the information about the cases to the information in the data bases of the state receiving the request;  and

(b) Shall constitute a certification by the requesting state:

(i) Of the amount of support under an order the payment of which is in arrears;  and

(ii) That the requesting state has complied with all procedural due process requirements applicable to each case.

(c) If the department provides assistance to another state with respect to a case, or if another state seeks assistance from the department pursuant to this section, neither state shall consider the case to be transferred to the caseload of such other state.
