Investigation and Determination.
The Department shall review
the forms or questionnaires returned by each parent or guardian and supplement
the information provided therein, where required, by such additional consultations
with the parent or guardian and such other investigations as may be necessary
and, applying the standard and regulations established by the Department,
shall determine whether and the extent to which, the parent or guardian
individually or together in any combination, are reasonably able to provide
parental payment for care and training of their children.
The Department, by rule, may conduct periodic or other reinvestigations
and redeterminations of the financial ability of parents or guardians.
Any redeterminations shall have the effect of altering, amending, or modifying
previous determinations. However, any redetermination which established
liability for parental payment of reimbursement, or which increases the
support or reimbursement liability specified in a prior order, shall be
subject to the provisions of Section 9.9 in the administrative and judicial
review procedures herein provided for original orders.
