What is the maximum amount that may be withheld each pay period from the employee's pay.
Answer in detail:
The permissible limit on withholding under the law depends upon the affected employee's present dependents and prior support obligations. Sixty percent of the employee's weekly disposable earnings may be withheld, unless the employee is presently supporting a spouse or a dependent child other than the one for whom the support is being ordered. In the latter case, only 50% of the employee's disposable earnings may be withheld. In either case, the maximum proportion is increased by 5% if the employee is more than 12 weeks behind in the payment of support. In most instances, the maximum percentage of disposable earnings subject to withholding for the affected employee will be specified in the notice. In the event that the agency or court does not know the employee's present support obligations, the employer may be required to elicit this information from the employee.
