When will I receive my first child support payment?

If arrears are due or immediate income withholding is included in the order for support, the Division of Child Support may issue a wage withholding order to the noncustodial parent's employer to withhold current support payments plus an additional amount to be applied to any past due support. When served, the employer or payor of income is required to forward payments within 7 days from the date the employee is paid or their property is withheld.

A prorated amount may be withheld, depending on the pay periods. The employer cannot withhold more than 50 percent of the gross income after mandatory deductions.
