What happens when an employer receives a wage garnishment for support?
If a situation occurs where an employer is required to send money on the employee’s behalf and they have not done so relatively quickly after the order is administered is there a need to panic?
Just because a court order says the employer is supposed to send you money, it does not mean that all of the procedures to make it enforceable have happened. Usually, after you get an order, there are forms to serve on the employer. The court issues those forms and they have to be served on the employer by someone authorized to do so. They will have a time frame for the employer to respond. If the employer refuses to comply, then you can go after the employer, but it's a specialized procedure and hard to accomplish with professional help.
