    You did not mention whether your present order provides for payment of the support by direct wage assignment, however given the employers denial I am assume that it does not. You will need to obtain an order that specifically directs that alimony be paid by wage assignment, the language of the order should also direct the employer to withhold the appropriate amount from the payor's wages and send the money to you. Another option would be to ask the Court to reduce to judgment any amount of...

For instance, if mom and dad are married and have not given...

    The law establishes certain maximum percentages that an employer can withhold from wages. It is possible that this amount was reached -- in which case you will not be able to obtain full payment. You should contact the employer to verify why the check was short. You do have other options for attaching other assets but you will need to first obtain a judgment to do so.

Factors such as whether there were any court orders in place requiring payment, and/or whether and what efforts were made to recovery support while you were still a minor, will all factor into the answer to your question. Generally however there are certain limitation in the recovery of child support put in place by statute. That statutory citation is NRS 125B.050, which provides: 1. If there is no...
