Is there a way to automatically withdraw spousal and/or child support from my Ex’s paychecks?

Automatically Withdraw Support from my Ex’s Paycheck

Question: My Ex is always late with child and spousal support payments. Can I do anything about it? Is there a way to automatically withdraw spousal and/or child support from my Ex’s paychecks?

Answer: Yes, if your Ex is a W-2 employee.

  1. If your Ex is a W-2 employee:
  • Your Ex is late with child and spousal support payments:
  • Drop 3 sets of the form FL-195 with the Court. It might take a few weeks for the Court to process the forms. You can attach a self-addressed & prepaid envelope to these forms for a court clerk to mail 2 conformed copies of the form back to you upon processing them.
  • Mail 1 confirmed copy of the form FL-195 along with a blank form FL-450 to your Ex’s employer. The form can be found here, https://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/fl450.pdf
  • Call California State Disbursement Unit to open a case number. You will be asked to provide a conformed copy of the form FL-195 by fax and follow other directions that you could receive payments from California State Disbursement Unit directly to your account.

 

  • Your Ex is late with only spousal support payments:
    • Fill out the form FL-435, please remember to mention only 4 last digits of your Ex’s SSN. The form can be found here, https://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/fl435.pdf
    • Drop 3 sets of the form FL-435 with the Court. It might take a few weeks for the Court to process the forms. You can attach a self-addressed & prepaid envelope to these forms for a court clerk to mail 2 conformed copies of the form back to you upon processing them.
    • Mail 1 confirmed copy of the form FL-435 along with a blank form FL-450 to your Ex’s employer. The form can be found here, https://www.courts.ca.gov/documents/fl450.pdf
  1. If your Ex is self-employed then you can file a Request for Order (form FL-300) asking for a specific court order mandating your Ex to deposit child and/or spousal support in advance.
