Income Withholding Order/Notice:
Income withholding is the court or administratively ordered deduction
of a specified amount from a parent's income for payment of child
support. All employers must honor an income withholding
order/notice for child support from any state. Out-of-state income
orders/notices are valid throughout the country including US
Territories. All states are required to use a standardized withholding
entitled Order/Notice to Withhold Income for Child Support (OMB
A child support income withholding order/notice must be paid
before all other garnishments, with one exception. The only exception is
Federal (IRS) tax levy entered prior to when the child support
order was established. It is the date the child support order is
and not the date the withholding order/notice is served on the
employer, that determines precedence.
The employer deducts the specified amount of child support each
pay period and submits via EFT, online, by phone or mails to SCaDU.
NOTE:Please do not include the required $2.00 fee amount with the regular child support payment; the $2.00 fee is a separate
payment to the Nevada State Treasurer and must be mailed to a separate address. Click Here for $2.00 fee information.
The following information must be included with each payment:
- Full Name of the employee
- Social Security Number of the employee
- Employer's Name and telephone number
- Amount withheld for each employee
- Case Number/UPI
NOTE:Payments for the same UPI/Case Number with different suffixes (A, B, etc.) may be combined.
