My child support has been paid in full ..They are still holding money out every week
Q) My child support has been paid in full, I went to my local office and they told me that once it was paid that the garnishment would stop. They are still holding money out every week, shouldn’t they know when it’s paid and stop the payments? I’m needing all the money I make to live, I paid my debt.
A) Yes, your local child support office should know when your child support has been paid in full and stop the garnishment. If they are still holding money out of your paycheck every week, you should contact them immediately to find out why.
There are a few possible reasons why your child support garnishment may not have stopped. One possibility is that the office has not received notification that your child support has been paid in full. Another possibility is that there is a backlog of cases and your case has not been processed yet. Finally, it is also possible that there is a mistake on your paperwork and the office is garnishing your wages in error.
Whatever the reason, you should contact your local child support office as soon as possible to find out why your garnishment has not stopped. You should also be prepared to provide them with documentation that shows that your child support has been paid in full.
If you are unable to resolve the issue with your local child support office, you may need to file a motion with the court to have the garnishment stopped. You can find more information about filing a motion to stop a child support garnishment on the website of the National Child Support Enforcement Association.
I hope this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any other questions.
If you have satisfied your child support payment requirements you need to request to have your child support garnishment stopped. To start this process gather proof of all paid child support payments. Then go to the court that issued the child support order and request an order to stop the wage garnishment from continuing
If the request is granted, take the order to stop wage garnishment to your employer. The wage garnishments should cease immediately
