Family Support Act

In past years there have been a large number of noncustodial parents who failed to pay child support when it was due. The federal government enacted the Family Support Act which became effective in 1994. This act provides that all original or modified child support orders require automatic wage withholding from a noncustodial parent’s income. The primary focus of the Family Support Act was to prevent the parent who does not have full custody of the child to miss making any child support payments. The courts can order that the noncustodial parent’s employer deduct the child support amount from the employees check and send it to the custodial parent.
