(1) If the person so notified does not submit written reasons for contesting the action within the time set to contest the proposed action, and does not request a meeting with the bureau for child support enforcement, then the bureau for child support enforcement shall proceed with the proposed action; or

(2) If the person so notified does submit written reasons for contesting the action within the time set to contest the proposed action, and requests a meeting with the bureau for child support enforcement, then the bureau for child support enforcement shall schedule a meeting at the earliest practicable time with the person and attempt to resolve the matter informally.
