Employers play a vital role in child support enforcement and make valuable contributions to the lives of children. Your role in the child support enforcement system is essential to ensure children receive financial and medical support from their parents. It is proven that regular child support payments can help families become financially self-sufficient and less dependent upon public assistance benefits. The law requires nearly all parents to have child support withheld from their paychecks. We realize this takes extra effort for you as an employer/payor.
