Child Support Laws and Avoiding Penalties and Liabilities under Federal & State Regulations

To bring a national standard to child support withholding laws, the Federal government has enacted laws that require states to adopt certain rules when setting their own standards for implementing child support requirements. These requirements include deadlines for withholding and remitting payments, filing procedures, and penalties and fines for violations. But the states are free to set up their own rules and regulations as long as they fall within those guidelines and many do differ from the minimum federal requirements. Payroll departments must know both the federal laws and the state laws and must determine which one applies to the child support withholding order.

In addition to these laws and regulations, the federal rules now require that a standard Income Withholding Order (IWO) be used for all child support withholding garnishments. This webinar by expert speaker Vicki M. Lambert, CPP will review this form and its requirements. And although the IWO can include all the information necessary to comply with the order, employers must familiarize themselves with both federal and state regulations to avoid penalties and liabilities. In addition, state law may address some issues the federal law is silent on, such as allowing for the collection of administration fees and how to calculate child support withholding when the employee does not have enough money to cover all support orders in effect. But withholding monies for child support is not the only requirement that applies to providing for a child; medical support orders are required to be processed by the payroll as well. These orders have their own rules and regulations on both the federal and state level. Additionally, this webinar will give examples of calculating child support.
