Employer requirements for administering child support garnishments go far beyond deducting and remitting support.

In fact, ensuring compliance can be some of the most complex tasks required of any payroll department.

These court ordered deductions are confusing, time sensitive and frustrating because not only are there federal and state laws to comply with, there are also specific child support requirements you need to address, like:

  • Filing deadlines and procedures,
  • Administrative fees, and those
  • Costly penalties and fines for violations.

Plus, what if there’s more than one withholding order? Which order has priority?  What if there’s not enough money to comply with the order?  Where does medical support come in?  And, what do you do with the arrears?
