I just went to court and was awarded Child Support but the judge didn’t say how they would be paid.

Q) Hi, I just went to court and was awarded Child Support but the judge didn’t say how they would be paid. In Orange County, NY if the respondent doesn’t show for the court dates and a decision is made without them, will the support be docked automatically from the respondents paycheck? I know the respondent in my case won’t pay otherwise.

A) After a child support order is in place, the support amount will be deducted from the Non Custodial Parent’s paycheck. State law requires immediate income withholding in most cases. This is an easy way for the Non Custodial Parent to make child support payments. It also provides the NCP with a record of payments made. If support payments are not deducted from the NCP’s paycheck, they should be paid as directed in the court order. It is very important to keep records of the payments that are made.

  1. You will need to provide evidence of your reduction of income in order for the judge to modify your child support obligation. The best evidence is the most recent tax returns and recent pay stubs. After the court orders a specific child support amount, it is often the case that one parent may seek to modify the child support agreement. However, a parent seeking child support modification will need to prove a change of circumstances.

    Steps To ask for a court hearing to change your existing child support order:

    Fill out your court forms.
    Have your forms reviewed.
    Make at least 2 copies of all your forms.
    File your forms with the court clerk.
    Get your court date.
    Serve your papers on the other parent (and the LCSA if involved)
    File your proof of service.
