AS 47.27.040. Assignment of Support Rights; Cooperation With Child Support Services Agency.
- (a) An Alaska temporary assistance program applicant is considered to have assigned to the state, through the child
support services agency of the Department of Revenue, all rights to accrued and continuing child support, from all
sources, that is due for the support of any individuals in the family for whom support is sought. The assignment takes
effect upon a determination that the applicant's family is eligible for cash assistance under this chapter. Except with
respect to the amount of any unpaid support obligation accrued under the assignment, the assignment terminates when the
family ceases to receive cash assistance under the Alaska temporary assistance program.
- (b) An Alaska temporary assistance program participant shall cooperate with the child support services agency of the
Department of Revenue in establishing paternity or establishing, modifying, or enforcing a child support order
requiring the payment of support by the noncustodial parent for a dependent child for whom Alaska temporary assistance
program cash assistance is received. The child support enforcement agency shall determine whether the participant is in
good faith compliance with the requirements of this subsection and shall inform the Department of Health and Social
Services of its determination. The Department of Health and Social Services shall establish whether the participant has
good cause for refusing to cooperate.
- (c) The department may distribute to an Alaska temporary assistance program participant $50 per month from a monthly child
support payment, or the amount of the child support payment if it is less than $50, received by the child support
services agency for the support of a child for whom Alaska temporary assistance program cash assistance is paid.
