Income Withholding

An income withholding order requires the payer's employer or other source of income to withhold support from the payer for the payment of support obligations. All support orders issued in Michigan must provide for an order of income withholding. The law requires that income withholding be immediately effective except in rare, specifically defined instances. It does not matter whether the support is behind or not: withholding is automatic without regard to whether an arrearage exists. The support amount is taken directly from a payer's check in a manner similar to income tax and social security payments.
