Does Child Support Have To Come Out Of My Paycheck?

Yes, unless your support order was issued or modified before October 13, 1990 and you always paid your support on time. Income withholding is an easy way to meet your child support obligation because your employer withholds the appropriate amount from your paycheck and sends it directly to ORS/CSS. You do not have to worry about going to the bank, writing a check, finding a stamp, etc. The majority of Utah employers withhold child support from many employees` paychecks each pay period. Paying through income withholding is no longer indicative of a delinquency. It is simply viewed as a no fuss way to meet your monthly obligation.
