|(a) PRS requests enforcement of court-ordered child support through the Texas Office of the Attorney General (OAG) Child Support Division. (b) After determining eligibility, PRS must refer all Title IV-E (Type Program 08), State-Paid (Type Program 10), and Medical Assistance Only (MAO) (Type Program 09) eligible children to the OAG's Child Support Division when child support is court-ordered. (c) The legal parents of a child in foster care must be included in a referral for enforcement of child support orders. Each legal parent is included even if one or both are missing or living in another state. If a parent has more than one child in foster care, the parent must be included in each child's referral. (d) As the child's managing conservator, PRS may ask the OAG's Child Support Division to defer collection of child support for up to six months when deferment is in the best interest of the child.
