My ex was put on child support 4 months ago, our baby is 6 months old now. He hadn't made any payments & they've sent a letter THREE TIMES to his job to garnish his wages. He has been at the same job for over 5 years. They aren't doing it!! His boss really likes him. Why won't his job garish his check? The child support said in another few months they could fine his job.. But another few months?!!! What can be done? Why won't his job take out the money??
No one can provide an answer as to why the employer won't honor the court order but the two most likely reasons are that they are ignorant or that they refuse to in order to protect your ex.
Contact an attorney to bring an action against the employer.

Sounds like game playing. Usually the SCU will bring a violation petition after three missed payments. If it is a weekly order, that time will occur fast, and the violation is filed, they will likely comply. It's not your problem. The payor should know, so he can also put pressure on the employer, as he will need to go back to court too. Meet with an experienced lawyer in your area to discuss your case in more detail.
If you have an order of support, then go to the Support Collections Unit and have them enforce the order. Here's their number: 1-888-208-4485. Also you can go to their offices: Nassau County Department of Social Services, 60 Charles Lindbergh Blvd. Suite #160,Uniondale, New York 11553-3656. Once they get involved the idea of voluntary payments becomes a thing of the past. You can also file a violation petition as well. But, use the SCU first.
