a.       Colorado reports all cases (instead of delinquent cases only) to the credit bureau.

b.       $5000 now but may be lowered once the STARS re-write is implemented next year.

c.        There must be an open IV-D case; Missouri is not the responding state if the case is a two-state interstate case; DCSE must have a Social Security Number for the non-custodial parent; and the NCP’s address must be known to DCSE. Missouri automatically provides monthly, electronic reports to the three major consumer reporting agencies (credit bureaus)--Experian, Equifax and Trans Union. The names of all non-custodial parents who meet the above criteria are submitted. Other companies must request this service from DCSE.

d.       Temporarily suspended credit reporting.

e.        Tennessee will refer the name of any non-custodial parent, of which the Tennessee IV-D agency has a record, who is either current in payments of support or who is delinquent and the amount of the current obligations or delinquent support owed by such parent.

f.         All obligated cases are reported regardless of whether there is a delinquency or all payments are current.

g.       The child support debt must be equal to or greater than $1000, AND payments in the past two months must be less than 2 x MOA (Monthly Order Amount) for all non-custodial parent cases.

*    Reporting is done only if the Credit Bureau requests the information

#    Credit Bureau Reporting is an automated process
