CP&P Form 26-1, Referral for Support Evaluation

Click here to view or print CP&P Form 26-1.

 

WHEN TO USE IT

 

This is used to request that the Division of Family Development (DFD) pursue child support monies on behalf of CP&P when a child is placed out of the home. Procedures are followed in accordance with an inter-divisional agreement entered into by the two agencies.

The form is used by CP&P to:

      Refer a client family to the Child Support Unit (initial referral)

      Provide new or updated information to the CSU on a client family previously referred.

CSU staff also use the form to provide information to CP&P (outside the NJS application) on a referred client family.

 

HOW TO USE IT

 

      Access the CP&P Form 26-1 through the NJ Spirit desktop> Eligibility Window> "any tab"> Options Drop-down.

      This form may contain pre-filled information. However, the enabled fields require the user to enter information in appropriate corresponding areas.

      Only complete this template outside of the NJ Spirit application as part of a contingency plan when the application is unavailable. However, in doing so, you are still required to create the form in NJ Spirit when the application becomes available.

 

TIPS FOR COMPLETING THE FORM

 

For the CS # field, enter the Child Support number assigned by the CSU for this case (if this is an updated request).
