In February 1999, the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) issued Interim Final Regulations implementing changes contained in the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, the Balanced Budget Act of 1997, the Adoption and Safe Families Act of 1997, and the Child Support Performance and Incentive Act of 1998. On May 12, 2003, OCSE responded to public comment on these changes and issued Final Regulations. This document discusses these regulatory changes.
