Are Employers' required to deduct child support payments from an employee's income?
Answer in detail:
As required by federal law in 1984, Indiana enacted an income withholding law which applies to all employers, regardles of size. It permits a court or the Child Support Bureau of the Indiana Division of Family and Children to order any employer to withhold delinquent and current child support obligations from an employee's earnings. The amounts withheld must be submitted to the clerk of the court or agency named in the notice to withhold. This could be a court or agency of another State. The law also applies to payments owed to independent contractors.
