Web portal assists employers with child support deductions

Many noncustodial parents in Texas and around the country pay child support through payroll deductions. In other words, the child support that a parent owes comes directly out of the parent's paycheck before the parent is paid by the employer. By paying child support in this way, noncustodial parents do not have to remember to make child support payments as long as they remain employed.

On Oct. 31, the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement released a new web portal that can help employers to process child support documents more efficiently. Using the Child Support Portal, employers can find forms and addresses related to child support payroll issues and provide child support enforcement agencies with critical information about a payer's employment status.

In addition to assisting employers with child support payroll deductions, the new Child Support Portal can also help with health insurance issues. An employer may use the portal to communicate with child support agencies about whether or not a particular employee is eligible for family health insurance coverage. Employers can also use the portal to inform child support agencies about the way that they manage payroll for employees who incur child support deductions. For example, some employers will have to let the agencies know that a third party manages their payroll.

Child support enforcement agencies sometimes have to track down people who are not making child support payments and compel them to pay. If custodial parents are not receiving the child support payments that they were awarded in court, an attorney might help them inform the local child support enforcement agency.
