Question: Our company contracts with an employee who quit and started his own business. We know he had a child support withholding order in place and that the order remains in effect. Must we continue to withhold child support?

Answer: As a practical matter, withholding follows the individual, so you could continue to withhold. However, the termination report that you filed with the state may trigger a different activity.
