Start Preamble

Title: Order to Withhold Income for Child Support and Notice of an Order to Withhold Income for Child Support.

OMB No.: 0970-0154.

Description: Public Law 104-193, the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) of 1996, section 324 requires the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) to develop a standardized form to collect child support payments from an obligor's employer.

The form, which promotes standardization, is used for IV-D and non-IV-D cases that require income withholding. We are revising the form to make it more universal for tribal governments and other uses. This two-page form provides a detailed legal description of established child support orders, support amounts, and remittance information that an employer needs to withhold payments from an obligor who owes child support.

Respondents: States and territories.
