Q: Is there any way to stop the involuntary withholding of my wages? I would be more at ease paying my child support by check, money order or electronically as opposed to them automatically taking the money out of my wages themselves. It doesn’t leave me with enough time to catch up on my other bills/expenses especially since right now I’m only receiving unemployment.
A: You can offer that to the custodial parent. It’s totally up to him/her whether to have the support paid via SCU or not – and once paid via SCU, there’s no way to avoid the garnishment. Call a Bronx Child Support attorney for more info.
