Withholding Child And Spousal Support

Webinar: ID# 1022943
Recorded CD
About This Course:
Federal and state child support laws affect every organization that pays at least one person. At the very least a new hire must be reported to the state. If that person has a support obligation, the payer will receive an income withholding order (IWO). Before withholding can begin the payer must determine if the order is "regular on its face."

When an order is accepted the employer must determine which laws must be applied; that becomes more complicated if the employee work state differs from the issuing state. Laws govern when withholding must begin, when, where and how the payment must be delivered; whether the agency must be notified in advance of a bonus payment, and other notifications such as termination of employment, workers' comp injury or leave of absence.

This webinar identifies the various laws that govern support and helps the persons responsible for income withholding select the correct law to calculate allowable disposable income (ADI), correctly allocate withholding between orders when the obligated amount is greater than ADI, and determine when medical support premiums must reduce the amount of cash support deducted.

The class will also provide the most current laws identifying reporting of a new hire, identify those states that require lump sum reporting, address electronic solutions the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement has developed to reduce the burden of paper orders and provide for electronic reporting of employee termination, identify that a person was never an employee, and report lump sum payments. Receive a heads up on additional requirements OCSE would like included in federal law.
