Can child support be taken out of the obligor's pay check?

Question and Answer

Can child support be taken out of the obligor's pay check?

Yes. As of 1990, state law requires that child support be paid through income withholding of any new or modified child support order. However, the obligor is always responsible for making sure the money gets paid even when payments are not withheld. If the income withholding payments don't cover the full amount of the order, the obligor is responsible for sending the difference to probation.
