1. A party or support enforcement agency seeking to enforce a support order or an
income-withholding order, or both, issued in another state or a foreign support order
may send the documents required for registering the order to a support enforcement
agency of this state.
2. Upon receipt of the documents, the support enforcement agency, without initially
seeking to register the order, shall consider and, if appropriate, use any administrative
procedure authorized by the law of this state to enforce a support order or an income-withholding
order, or both. If the obligor does not contest administrative enforcement, the order need not be
registered. If the obligor contests the validity or administrative enforcement of the order,
the support enforcement agency shall register the order pursuant to this chapter.
