Court Ordered Withholdings Deduction (GARNISH)

A Court Ordered Withholding is an employee only contribution that can be either a flat amount or a % of Disposable Earnings (DE). Documents must be received from the proper officials before the withholding can start or stop. Income withholdings (child support and maintenance) and garnishments include an administrative fee that is paid by the employee. To calculate DE you take Total Earnings minus Taxes minus Retirement. Types of Withholdings Income Withholding Orders are for child support and/or maintenance issued by the courts and includes a $5.00 administrative fee per order with a maximum of $10.00 per order per month.
