Bill streamlines child support payments

Posted: Updated:

by Nick Delgado

Guam - Senator Rory Respicio introduced legislation that would require employers to electronically remit any required child support withholdings to the Office of the Attorney General's Child Support Enforcement Division. Bill 163 would streamline the processing of child support payments making it more effective to distribute.

Respicio states, "Remitting child support withholdings electronically is fast, simple and safe. Doing this means these children will receive their support on the same day that their parent receives his or her paycheck." Electronic filing is currently optional to employers, however, the legislation would make it mandatory.

The measure would also require that employers with ten or more employees, where at least on employee pays court ordered child support, electronically remit those child support withholdings.
