SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Description: The IWO is the standard form that must be used to order and notify employers and income providers to withhold child support payments from an obligor’s income.

Child support agencies, courts, private attorneys, custodial parties, and others must use the IWO form to initiate an income withholding order for support and give notice of income withholding. State child support agencies are required to have automated data processing systems containing current order and case information. State child support agencies providing services to custodial and/or noncustodial parties enter the terms of a child support order established by a tribunal into the state’s automated system, which automatically populates the order information into the IWO form. Employers and income providers also use the form to respond to the order/ notice with termination or income status information. Employers and other income providers may choose to receive the IWO form from child support agencies on paper or electronically, and may respond on paper or electronically to notify the sender of termination of employment or change in the income status. The information collection activities pertaining to the IWO form are authorized by 42 U.S.C. 666(a)(1), (a)(8), and 666(b)(6), which require the use of the IWO form to order income withholding for all child support orders. The IWO form and instructions include these proposed changes: 1. Changed effective date from a calendar date to a text entry. This clarifies that IWOs are effective on either the date of mailing, receipt, or service to the employer. 2. Added a textbox in Remittance Information regarding payments in interstate cases. 3.
