My Child's Noncustodial Parent Works For A Big Company And Has Moved Several Times In Her Job. Can Automatic Withholding Work?

Yes. States must recognize the wage withholding orders from other States, and continue the wage withholding as ordered, without regard to where the noncustodial parent or the custodial parent and the children live. Also, state and federal law now requires an employer to report within twenty days of hiring any employee who fills out a W­4 form whether full time, part­time, or student worker.
