North Dakota Century Code

14-09-09.25. Requests by obligee for income withholding - Approval - Procedures and standards.

  1. An obligee may apply to a child support agency for approval of an income withholding request. The income of the obligor becomes subject to income withholding on the date an approved request is made.
  2. The public authority shall establish procedures and standards for the approval of obligee requests for income withholding. The standards established must include consideration of:
    1. An obligor's threat to discontinue child support payments; and
    2. An obligor's having made child support payments sufficient to avoid a delinquency but insufficient to conform to the ordered amount.
  3. Upon application of an obligee requesting income withholding, the child support agency shall promptly approve or disapprove the request. The child support agency may not approve the obligee's request in a case where the court has determined that there is good cause not to require immediate income withholding unless the court first changes its determination.
