Pay through automatic deductions

If you're a paying parent and are not in child support debt, you can choose to have your employer deduct payments from your salary or wages. Talk to us to work out your payments. We'll let your employer know how much to deduct and when.

If you receive a benefit from Work and Income, your child support payments will be automatically deducted before your benefit is paid to you.
