39-7,148. Same; modification or termination. (a) At any time after issuing an income withholding order, the secretary shall: (1) Modify or terminate the income withholding order because of a modification or termination of the underlying support order; (2) modify the amount of income withheld to reflect payment in full of the arrearages; (3) modify or terminate the income withholding order to reflect the final order in a fair hearing pursuant to K.S.A. 75-3306, and amendments thereto; or (4) modify, or when appropriate terminate, an income withholding order consisting in whole or in part of a medical withholding order because of a modification or termination of the underlying medical child support order.

(b) In addition to modifications required by subsection (a), at any time the secretary may issue a modified income withholding order: (1) To change the amount to be withheld to defray arrearages; or (2) to conform the terms of a medical withholding order to the requirements of a payer. The provisions of this subsection shall apply only to income withholding orders issued pursuant to K.S.A. 39-7,147, and amendments thereto, including any modifications of such orders.

(c) The secretary shall provide notice of any proposed modification to the responsible parent by personal service, first-class mail or registered mail, return receipt requested, at least 14 days before entry of the modified income withholding order. The responsible parent may request: (1) An administrative hearing pursuant to K.S.A. 75-3306, and amendments thereto, for review of the proposed modification by complying with procedures established by the secretary within ten days after service of the notice; or (2) a de novo court review pursuant to K.S.A. 39-7,139, and amendments thereto. If the notice is served by mail, the time for requesting review shall be extended by three days. If the proposed modification increases the total amount to be withheld from the responsible parent's income, entry of the modified income withholding order shall be stayed pending resolution of the review. In all other instances, entry of the proposed modification shall be stayed only for cause. The issues in the administrative hearing shall be limited to whether the amount of current support is as stated in the proposed modification and whether the total arrearages are less than the proposed installment to defray arrearages.

(d) The responsible parent may request that the secretary terminate an income withholding order for cash support if: (1) Withholding has not previously been terminated and reinitiated; and (2) there is a written agreement among the parties that provides for an alternative arrangement. If an income withholding order is terminated and the obligor subsequently accrues any arrearages, the secretary may issue another income withholding order as provided in K.S.A. 39-7,147, and amendments thereto.

(e) If the income withholding order includes both a medical withholding order and an income withholding order for cash support, modification or termination of one portion of the income withholding order shall not modify or terminate any other portion of the income withholding order except as expressly provided in the order.

(f) The provisions of K.S.A. 39-7,147, and amendments thereto, relating to transmitting income withholding orders to the tribunal that issued the underlying support order, shall apply to any order issued modifying or terminating income withholding that is issued pursuant to this section.
