Notice of registration of order.
(a) When a support order or income-withholding order issued in another
state or a foreign support order is registered, the registering tribunal of this State shall notify the nonregistering
party. The notice must be accompanied by a copy of the registered order and
the documents and relevant information accompanying the order.
(b) A notice must inform the nonregistering party:
(1) that a registered support order is enforceable as
of the date of registration in the same manner as an order issued by a tribunal of this State;
(2) that a hearing to contest the validity or
enforcement of the registered order must be requested within 20 days after notice unless the registered order is under Section 707;
(3) that failure to contest the validity or
enforcement of the registered order in a timely manner will result in confirmation of the order and enforcement of the order and the alleged arrearages; and
(4) of the amount of any alleged arrearages.
(c) If the registering party asserts that two or more orders are in
effect, a notice must also:
(1) identify the two or more orders and the order
alleged by the registering party to be the controlling order and the consolidated arrears, if any;
(2) notify the nonregistering party of the right to a
determination of which is the controlling order;
(3) state that the procedures provided in subsection
(b) apply to the determination of which is the controlling order; and
(4) state that failure to contest the validity or
enforcement of the order alleged to be the controlling order in a timely manner may result in confirmation that the order is the controlling order.
(d) Upon registration of an income-withholding order for
enforcement, the support enforcement agency or the registering tribunal shall notify the obligor's employer
pursuant to the Income Withholding for Support Act.
