New Jersey Child Support Attorney Discusses Direct Pay vs. Wage Execution

shutterstock_113718259-300x200.jpgAs a knowledgeable New Jersey Child Support Attorney, I get questions all the time from clients about direct pay and wage execution and their differences. Once the child support calculation has been set, the next consideration is how is the parent of primary residence going to receive that support. Is it going to be via wage execution, meaning it's a direct payment from the payer to the court and then the court sends the payment to the primary parent or are you going to have your former spouse pay you directly? No answer is the best answer; it's what works better for your family. If it's by wage execution, it gives the parent receiving the support some degree of certainty about the timing of the payment, that someone will keep track of the payments for you, that you'll be able to go online and see when payments are made, and you know that the money is going to be directly deposited into your bank account. You may have such a relationship with your former spouse that you say no, you can pay them directly, and your spouse can pay you directly. The court won't mandate one versus the other, but if a spouse requests wage execution, the court will grant it.

Are you trying to decide between direct pay and wage execution in order to pay for your child support? Contact our professional New Jersey Child Support Attorney for any questions you may have.
