Income Withholding

Withholding a portion of an employee’s pay for payment of child support is known by many names, such as garnishment, wage assignment, income withholding, and withholding from earnings. Income withholding has become the most successful and efficient tool for collecting child support. Today, employers withholding employees’ wages constitutes over 80 percent of all collections in cases enforced by the Office of the Attorney General’s (OAG’s) Child Support Division (CSD) (IV-D full-service cases).
