Question: We have weekly-paid employees who regularly work four consecutive weeks and then take two weeks off. As a result, some have trouble maintaining their monthly child support obligations. How might we work with the state agencies to accommodate our pay frequency so employees don’t end up in arrears?
Answer: Ultimately, it’s employees’ responsibility to pay their child support. Employees could pay directly or request overwithholding. However, get their overwithholding requests in writing, because those requests may violate the withholding limits in the Consumer Credit Protection Act. (Source: Office of Child Support Enforcement)
