Employers: Payments

Common Errors

Error 6: Employer does not remit payments within 7 business days

Problem: Withholding child support payments for longer than 7 business days is illegal. It also deprives the families of needed support and the employees of an accurate payment history. Late remittals can result in child support becoming past due and accruing interest and, for cases being serviced by a child support enforcement program, being reported to credit bureaus.

Appropriate Action: Per state law, employers must remit income withholding payments within 7 business days of the date the employee is paid.
