Overview

When a state receives a request from a foreign country to enforce a foreign order, the state will need to convert the foreign order amount into U.S. dollars when registering the order for enforcement.  Once registered, the state will enforce the U.S. dollar amount.

Policy

When a District CSE Office in Wyoming receives a request to register and enforce an order from a foreign country with a reciprocal agreement as discussed in 11.4.1 – International – Reciprocal Countries, Wyoming will use the date Wyoming received the request for enforcement to convert the foreign order into U.S. currency.

Additionally, when the State Disbursement Unit (SDU) receives a payment from a foreign country, the two-day timeframe to distribute the payment as discussed in 14.1 – Collection and Distribution – Introduction begins the date the converted payment is received by the SDU.  For example, the Wyoming SDU receives a child support check in Canadian dollars.  The SDU will immediately send the check to the bank to convert the Canadian dollar check to U.S. dollars.  Once the bank converts the payment to U.S. dollars and sends it back to the Wyoming SDU, the SDU will have two days to send the payment to the custodial parent.
