How Am I Assured That I Will Receive Support Payments?

Support orders since January 1994 must include a provision for wage withholding unless both parents and the courts agree on other payment methods. Under wage withholding, the support payment is deducted from the non­custodial parent`s paycheck just as taxes, insurance premiums and other items are. Child Support then sends the check to the custodial parent. Wage withholding offers advantages for all parties. First, is assures that the payment is made on the front end ­ thus the child is financially supported. Second, it is a clear written record for the non­custodial parent that the support payment was made. If the non­custodial parent is self­employed, arrangements for electronic funds transfer to CSED can be made.
