Income Withholding for Support

Effective May 31, 2012, sections 466(a)(1), (a)(8) and 466(b)(6) of the Social Security Act (the Act) require the use of the Income Withholding for Support (IWO) form in all cases in which a court has ordered a parent to pay child support by income withholding. Private attorneys and courts authorized under state law to issue IWOs must use the federally approved OMB IWO form for all child support income withholding by employers. Self represented pro se litigants must also use this form.
