4954.  (a) When a support order or income-withholding order issued
in another state is registered, the registering tribunal shall notify
the nonregistering party. The notice shall be accompanied by a copy
of the registered order and the documents and relevant information
accompanying the order.
   (b) The notice shall inform the nonregistering party:
   (1) That a registered order is enforceable as of the date of
registration in the same manner as an order issued by a tribunal of
this state;
   (2) That a hearing to contest the validity or enforcement of the
registered order must be requested within 20 days after notice;
   (3) That failure to contest the validity or enforcement of the
registered order in a timely manner will result in confirmation of
the order and enforcement of the order and the alleged arrearages and
precludes further contest of that order with respect to any matter
that could have been asserted; and
   (4) Of the amount of any alleged arrearages.
   (c) Upon registration of an income-withholding order for
enforcement, the registering tribunal shall notify the obligor's
employer pursuant to Chapter 8 (commencing with Section 5200).
