. (a) Upon making application to the local child support
agency for child support enforcement services pursuant to Section
17400, every applicant shall be requested to give the local child

arrearages are owed. If the applicant alleges arrearages are owed,
the statement shall be signed under penalty of perjury.

agency shall enforce only arrearages declared under penalty of
perjury pursuant to subdivision (a), arrearages accrued after the
case was opened, or arrearages determined by the court in the child
support action. Arrearages may be determined by judgment, noticed
motion, renewal of judgment, or registration of the support order.
(c) For all cases opened by the district attorney on or before
December 31, 1995, the local child support agency shall enforce only
arrearages that have been based upon a statement of arrearages signed
under penalty of perjury or where the local child support agency has
some other reasonable basis for believing the amount of claimed
arrearages to be correct.
