Why Is Child Support Still Being Withdrawn From My Checks If I Won Custody In Queens?

Don’t panic. Your situation is extremely common.

Even after a new court order is issued, Queens will continue withdrawing child support from your paychecks and providing the money to your child’s other parent.

This will often continue even when you’ve contacted them or visited them in person with documentation of the change in custody.

Basically, the Child Support Enforcement office in Queens is overworked and understaffed, and requests and changes usually aren’t handled overnight.

These things take time, persistence on your part, and your child’s other parent should understand that the money coming to them needs to be repaid.

When any of these become sticking points, you may need an attorney to straighten the matter out.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help our clients in Queens get the fastest resolution when child support and custody matters arise.
