Yes, wage garnishment, called income execution in New York, is an accepted practice to collect unpaid child support.
If you fall too far behind on your child support payments, your employer will receive a court order instructing them to withhold a particular amount of money from your paychecks.
Though it is illegal for your employer to fire you for having your wages garnished, most people prefer that their employers not be privy to their private financial matters.
If you’re having trouble meeting your child support obligation, you have options.
