Income Withholding From Paychecks

Most child support payments will be automatically withheld from an employee's paycheck, provided the Child Support Agency has been informed of the payer's employer.

However, all payers are ultimately responsible for making sure that payments are made. Payers are instructed to check their paycheck stubs to make sure that the appropriate amounts of money were withheld. If the entire amount of child support due was not withheld, it is the payer's responsibility to send in the difference to the Wisconsin Support Collections Trust Fund ("WI SCTF").
