(a) (1) Except as provided in subsection (c), the secretary of wildlife and parks or the secretary's designee is authorized to issue to any Kansas resident a lifetime fishing, hunting or furharvester or combination hunting and fishing license upon proper application made therefor to the secretary or the secretary's designee and payment of a license fee as follows:

(A) A total payment made at the time of purchase in the amount prescribed pursuant to K.S.A. 32-988, and amendments thereto; or

(B) payment may be made over a two-year period in eight quarter-annual installments in the amount prescribed pursuant to K.S.A. 32-988, and amendments thereto.

(2) If payment is in installments, the license shall not be issued until the final installment has been paid. A person making installment payments shall not be required to obtain the appropriate annual license, and each installment payment shall be deemed to be such an annual license for a period of one year following the date of the last installment payment made. If an installment payment is not received within 30 days after it is due and owing, the secretary may consider the payments in default and may retain any payments previously received.

(3) Any lifetime license issued to a Kansas resident shall not be made invalid by reason of the holder thereof subsequently residing outside the state of Kansas.

(C) an agreement has been completed or an order has been entered setting minimum payments to defray the arrearages, together with receipt of the first minimum payment;

The licensee shall have the burden of obtaining and delivering the release.

(3) The secretary for children and families shall issue a release upon request if the requirements of subsection (c)(3) are met.

(e) Nothing in subsection (c) or (d) shall be construed to require or permit the secretary of wildlife and parks to determine any issue related to a child support order or related to the title IV-D case including to resolve questions of mistaken identity or determine the adequacy of any notice relating to subsection (c) or (d) that the secretary of wildlife and parks provides to the applicant.

(f) "Title IV-D" means part D of title IV of the federal social security act, 42 U.S.C. § 651 et seq., as in effect on December 31, 2001, relating to child support enforcement services.
