11.3.5 - Responding - Closure


The Wyoming CSE Program is required to provide the same IV-D services for incoming intergovernmental cases as it does for intrastate cases. This also applies to case closure.


When Wyoming is the Responding State, the case worker shall

  • Review a case for closure as allowed by federal regulation (See Chapter 12 Closure for details on each closure type);

  • Close the case on POSSE, if appropriate; and

  • Update the Initiating State with the closure via CSENet (Appendix 11.E – CSENet States) or hard copy.

In addition to the general closure reasons that apply to all IV-D cases, the federal regulations have three specific to intergovernmental cases.

  • If an Initiating State does not take an action that is essential to the next step in providing service, Wyoming may close the child support case 60 days after sending the Initiating State a notice of intent to close if an appropriate response is not received.

  • The Initiating State notifies the Responding State that the Initiating State has closed its case.

  • The Initiating State notifies the Responding State that its intergovernmental services are no longer needed.

Note: Do not remove the intergovernmental Information on a Case where Wyoming is the Responding State.
