Income Withholding

Most child support orders require child support to be automatically withheld from the noncustodial parent’s paycheck. The money goes through the Texas State Disbursement Unit, which records the amount paid by the obligor, and transfers the funds according to law (usually to the obligee/custodial parent).   Automatic income withholding orders are routine and provide an efficient form of record keeping and verification that the other parent received the funds.
