This webinar focuses on child support garnishments and includes best practices for processing all garnishments but especially child support in a payroll department. The webinar includes the rules and regulations governing child support as well as calculation examples.

Why Should You Attend:

The federal rules now require that a standard Income Withholding Order (IWO) be used for all child support withholding garnishments. This webinar will review this form and its requirements. And although the IWO can include all the information necessary to comply with the order, employers must familiarize themselves with both federal and state regulations to avoid penalties and liabilities. In addition, state law may address some issues the federal law is silent on such as allowing for the collection of administration fees and how to calculate child support withholding when the employee does not have enough money to cover all support orders in effect. But withholding monies for child support is not the only requirement that applies to providing for a child, medical support orders are required to be processed by payroll as well. And these orders have their own rules and regulations on both the federal and state level. Apart from clarifying the above mandates, this webinar will also provide examples for calculating child support.

This 90-minute presentation will help you stay updated with regulations and best practices for handling child support withholding orders within a payroll environment. The attendee will come away with knowledge on how to calculate child support in all types of scenarios including proration when the wages are insufficient to cover the withholding orders.

Topic Background:

To bring a national standard to child support withholding laws, the federal government has enacted laws that require states to adopt certain rules when setting their own standards for implementing child support requirements. These requirements include deadlines for withholding and remitting payments, filing procedures, and penalties and fines for violations. But the states are free to set up their own rules and regulations as long as they fall within those guidelines and many do differ from the minimum federal requirements. Payroll departments must know both the federal laws and the state laws and must determine which one applies to the child support withholding order.
