If I have a order for child support (for arrears) already being deducted, can they deduct it from other sources?

Asked over 1 year ago - Orlando, FL

The order is for $180 deducted twice a month, total $360. I received a quarterly bonus of which they took $165. Does that make the court order null and void. If not, can I have the court order modified for a lower amount. If the bonus amount cannot be refunded, would it be applied as a credit deducted from the arrears amount?
