Clarification on Use of the Federal Order/Notice to Withhold Income for Child Support

PIQ-01-01, Clarification on Use of the Federal Order/Notice to Withhold Income for Child Support comes U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children & Families' Office of Child Support Enforcement:

"Our goal in issuing this PIQ is to clarify the appropriate use of the Federal Income Withholding Form. We have received a number of inquiries, from State IV-D agencies and employers, questioning whether the form has been issued with the proper underlying authority to do so. Concerns have also been raised about the authority needed to redirect payments to an entity other than that indicated in the underlying support or income withholding order. PIQ-99-02, dated February 8, 1999, responds to earlier inquiries for clarification on the use of the standardized Federal income withholding form"

You are welcome. I had that on the hard drive for some time as apart of some research I did years ago. Glad it has been of some use.
