Income Withholding for Support

Sections 466(a)(1), (a)(8) and 466(b)(6) of the Social Security Act (the Act) require the use of the Income Withholding for Support (IWO) form in all cases in which a court has ordered a parent to pay child support by income withholding. Private attorneys and courts authorized under state law to issue Income Withholding Orders must use the federally approved OMB 0970-0154 Income Withholding Order form for all child support income withholding by employers. Self-represented pro se litigants must also use this form.
