In NC, Non-Public Assistance cases are only reviewed at three (3) year intervals, when requested by either the Non Custodial Parent NCP or custodial parent CP. So unless NCP or the CP requests a review, none is automatically performed.
The responsible caseworker examines the case data to determine if any barriers to the review exist. When caseworkers determine that the request is warranted, they send a Notice of Impending Review to both the NCP and CP. This Notice states that the review request is being honored and indicates that the review will begin thirty (30) days from the date identified on the notice. This notice also requests any pertinent information that would affect the review process or its final outcome.
When responsible caseworkers determine that the request for review is unwarranted, they end the review process for that case, document the reason for the review denial, and notify the CP and NCP.
No, it will never be reviewed unless one of you requests it.
Even if one of you requests it, it can only be reviewed every 3 years under NC law.
So if one of you asks for it to be reviewed after 1 or 2 years, the review will be denied. It can be reviewed at year 3, 6, 9, etc...
