What About Multiple Child Support Orders For The Same Employee?

You must add together the current support owed for each order and withhold that amount first. If this amount does NOT exceed the CCPA or appropriate state law, you may withhold additional earnings for any arrearage provided the total amount withheld does not exceed the amount available under the CCPA or appropriate State law. If only one withholding is for arrearage only, withhold an amount up to the CCPA limitation.
