    4. During the period when the supporting party is incarcerated, is not on Work Release, and has no resources with which to make the payment. If the local CSS agency verifies that an incarcerated NCP has resources with which to continue to pay child support, however, enforcement must continue.
    5. After the date when the adoption of the child has been finalized by court order.

Once an NCP's parental rights have been terminated, the NCP no longer has a legal obligation to pay ongoing support. If arrearages accumulated prior to the date of the termination of parental rights, enforcement to collect arrearages must continue.
    1. The moving party can file a motion before the support payment is due. Only those arrearages that accrue between the time when the motion was filed and the date of hearing can be modified by the court.
    2. If the moving party was precluded from filing a timely motion due to any of the situations listed below, a motion must be filed promptly after such situation no longer exists:
