Child Support

Support Withholding
The custodial parent can request the court to order immediate automatic withholding, even if the support payments are not past due. All support orders issued since January 1, 1994, require immediate withholding unless specifically waived by court order or by the written consent of both parents. Since the passage of the Welfare Reform Reconciliation Act of 1996, all orders that are in arrears will cause immediate withholding.

The order will state the amount to be deducted for child support. The maximum amount of an employee's compensation that is subject to attachment for child support is governed by the Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA). The maximum percentage is based on an employee's disposable earnings (gross earnings less federal/state/local taxes).
