What is a Wage Assignment Order?
An order directing an employer or other payor of funds to withhold a monthly amount from the income of the person obligated to pay child support, spousal maintenance, child support and spousal maintenance arrearage, and/or interest.
Most child support orders may be enforced through a wage assignment order. Where the obligor is employed for wages or commissions, a wage assignment order may be obtained. In this situation, the employer withholds the appropriate amount from each paycheck of the obligor and sends it directly to the custodial parent. Other court judgments may be enforced by garnishments. Other enforcement methods are also available, depending on the particular situation.
