Comply With a Child Support Withholding Order

Key Points

  • HR and payroll departments play a central role in the enforcement of child support withholding orders issued against employees who are noncustodial parents.
  • Increased government efforts in recent years to collect unpaid child support has forced employers to comply with a greater number of child support withholding orders within shorter time constraints.
  • HR and payroll professionals need to be well versed in a complex set of overlapping federal and state laws, rules and procedures in order to remain compliant.
