You must report your employment information to Child Support. Child Support will issue an income withholding order to your employer instructing your employer to start withholding support at your next pay period. Monitor your case online to be sure the amount your employer withholds covers the amount you owe. This is especially important at the start of your support obligation and when there is a change in your pay cycle such as when changing jobs.
State law requires, within 10 days of a new order or any change in information, you must report your employer's name, address, and phone number. You must also report your social security number, address, phone number, driver's license number and any other information that may affect your child support case. To learn more see NDCC 14-09-08.1(2)(a).
Report your new employer's name, address, and phone number to Child Support. Monitor your case activity online to be sure there isn't a gap in payments due to the employers having different pay cycles. If there is a gap in payments, you must make a payment to cover the missed amount. It's important to stay current with your payments to avoid interest charges and other enforcement actions.
