The employer of the noncustodial parent is served with a court order or a notice of assignment to withhold a specified amount of current support and back child support, with instructions to send the wages to the FSD or local child support agency for distribution. Once a wage assignment is served, the employer must honor it as long as the noncustodial parent remains employed.
An employer may not take more than 50 percent of the noncustodial parent`s disposable earnings unless ordered to do so by the court. The wage assignment order has priority over any other withholding order against the noncustodial parent.
