The noncustodial parent is not a Native American, but works on a Reservation. Will the employer withhold income from his or her paycheck to make the child support payment?

Answer

If the tribe is operating a federally funded child support program, your caseworker should send the income withholding order to the tribal child support agency. The tribal child support agency will process the income withholding order and serve it on the tribal enterprise.

If the tribe is not receiving federal funding to operate a child support program, your caseworker should contact the tribe's administrative office or tribal court to ask about their procedures for honoring an income withholding order.
