Most garnished support is sent to a State disbursement unit. How quickly it's distributed depends on factors such as how quickly the employer or other payor of income forwards the garnished funds, the level of efficiency of the disbursement unit, whether there is an appeal pending in that matter, and whether the State is owed some of all of the garnished funds.

Thanks for the feedback!
Your check is being garnished you have child support coming out of your check does the 25 percent garnishment include your child support or is the 25 percent taken out after the child support?
Assuming your question is "Do they take child support out before they tax my wages?", the answer is : No. They take it out after your taxes are deducted. They figure support b…ased on your gross earnings, but factor in your taxes. However, you are not getting a tax break, like you do on your insurance premiums.
absolutely, but they should be modified] see links below
No, your salary cannot be garnished to pay the debt of another, UNLESS you have contracted to pay that debt. Now, that being said, any assests such as bank accounts, stocks, b…onds, Certificates of Deposit, IRA's, etc. that represent mixed assetts of you and your husband can be attached for the solution of a debt, especially child support.
That is dependent of amount ordered and if there are arrears. see link below
yes (but not public assistance/SSI)
What can you do if your employer is not paying your garnishment to child support but is taking out of your check?
Talk to payroll first. They could be sending it, but the state losing it, especially if it's an out of state order. As a federal felony, employers are not likely to do this,… which is why you should take enough deduction to forgo a tax return refund. Request a copy of canceled checks. If by chance they are, report this to your state Office of Child Support Enforcement. see link
yes, after the support has been modified.
No - SSI is a form of public assistance.
No, only up to 50%, and not at all if you are on SSI. see links below
a portion can be deducted but not the whole sum Answer Depending on circumstances, the maximum amount that can be taken would run from 50-65%. Why are you in arrears? If t…here is a justifiable reason, the possibility still exist to get a reduction, or at the minimum, having interest penalties set aside. See links below.
The starting points are as follows: # of children | Percentage of Obligor's Net Resources / 1 | 20% / 2 | 25% / 3 | 30% / 4 | 35% / 5 | 40% / 6 or… more | Not less than the amount for 5 children
The State's Attorney/District Attorney or your State's child support agency can do this.
The State can place a lien on bank accounts and other assets. The lien freezes the account.
