Child Support Division
Employers: Active Military Duty
Employees may be called to active military duty. When this happens and the employer is withholding income for child support for the employee, it is suggested that the employer contact the state child support program that issued the income withholding order and provide the date of activation so that a new income withholding order can be issued to the proper military service branch. By providing this information, the employer is helping the employee avoid lapses in payment to his or her children while serving our country.
Even though the employee is called to active military duty, the employer must retain the income withholding order so that withholding can resume when the employee returns to work.
For More Information:
General information regarding active military duty may be found on the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) website. (NOTE: The information provided on the OCSE website is only intended to be a general summary of information. Because laws vary from state to state, employers should contact the North Dakota Child Support Division if they have any questions regarding requirements for North Dakota employers.
