Income Withholding

What Does it Mean?

Income withholding is a method of collecting child support. It involves rerouting a person's income towards their child support payments.

Things You Should Know

A notice of income withholding requires a person's employer to withhold a certain amount of income made by a parent paying child support from their paycheck. The income withheld should equal the amount of current child support owed, and may also include past-due child support.

The notice for income withholding will typically be sent to both the parent paying child support and their employer.

Income withholding can also be the result of a child support enforcement penalty.
