New York can garnish wages when people get behind on their child support payments, but wage garnishment can be difficult depending on how a self-employed person’s business is structured.
When a person doesn’t receive a paycheck from an ongoing payer, there’s no one to send the income execution (wage garnishment) order to.
New York has many options for recovering child support, from direct financial collections of tax returns or bank accounts to suspending a non-payer’s driver’s license and reporting the arrears to credit agencies.
Don’t worry that your self-employed spouse will get away with not paying.
