Prev Article 7. - SOCIAL WELFARENext


39-7,155. Past due child support or failure to comply with subpoena, restricted driving privileges; certification by secretary; notice; hearing. (a) The secretary of revenue shall restrict a person's driving privileges pursuant to K.S.A. 8-255, and amendments thereto, upon request of the secretary for children and families if the secretary for children and families certifies, as provided in this section, that the person owes past due support or has failed to comply with a warrant or subpoena in a title IV-D case. The secretary for children and families shall provide the secretary of revenue identifying information about each person so certified. When this section requires the division to place restrictions on a person's driving privileges, the division shall restrict the person's driving privileges only under the circumstances provided by subsections (a)(1), (a)(2), (a)(3) and (a)(4) of K.S.A. 8-292, and amendments thereto.

(b) A restriction of driving privileges under this section shall continue until the secretary for children and families decertifies the person and the person meets requirements for receiving a driver's license.

(c) The secretary for children and families is authorized to certify a person to the secretary of revenue for restriction of the person's driving privileges if:

(1) The person owes past due support in a title IV-D case equal to or greater than $500 or has failed, after appropriate notice, to comply with an outstanding warrant or subpoena directed to the person in a title IV-D case; and

(2) at least 30 days have elapsed from the date written notice of the proposed certification was mailed to the person and no timely request for review has been made or such review has been resolved in favor of the secretary for children and families.

(d) The secretary for children and families shall mail to the person a notice of the proposed certification to restrict driving privileges by certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to the person at the person's last known address. The notice shall describe the basis of the proposed certification, compliance actions that the person may take to prevent certification, how the person may request a fair hearing pursuant to K.S.A. 75-3306, and amendments thereto, the time frame the person shall meet to prevent certification, how the person may be decertified once certification occurs and how the person may obtain additional information.

(e) If, within the time frame stated in the notice, the person demonstrates to the secretary for children and families that the person has met applicable requirements of subsection (a) of K.S.A. 2016 Supp. 39-7,156, and amendments thereto, the secretary shall not certify the person under this section so long as the person remains in compliance. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to prevent the secretary from issuing a new notice of proposed certification if the person ceases to be in compliance, owes past due support equal to or greater than $500 in a different title IV-D case or fails to comply with a different warrant or subpoena in a title IV-D case.

(f) If a timely request for fair hearing pursuant to K.S.A. 75-3306, and amendments thereto, is made, certification by the secretary for children and families shall be stayed pending resolution of the fair hearing.

(g) As used in this section, "title IV-D case" means a case being administered by the secretary for children and families pursuant to part D of title IV of the federal social security act, 42 U.S.C. § 651 et seq.
