In a BLR webinar entitled ‘Payroll: How to Legally Handle Tax Levies and Garnishments’, attorney Clint Robison and attorney Amy Jensen discuss what organizations need to know about non-stamped child support payment notices. If there is no date on an order for child support garnishment, is the employer obligated to stop the deductions only when the child becomes 18 years old? The attorneys answer this question by stating the following points:
- the employer needs to follow the garnishment guidelines for the jurisdiction that initiated the child support garnishment order
- there isn’t a specific or nationwide method to determine when child support payments should cease; state laws may vary with respect to child support orders and their validity or length of time that such orders can be enforced
