    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 withholding orders/notices are valid throughout the country including US Territories. All states are required to use a standardized withholding form entitled Order/Notice to Withhold Income for Child Support (OMB No. 0970-0154).

    A child support income withholding order/notice must be paid before all other garnishments, with one exception. The only exception is a Federal (IRS) tax levy entered prior to when the child support order was established. It is the date the child support order is established, 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.
