Thank you for your question.
Although I am an attorney, I cannot represent you. However, I will give you the most thorough information I am able.
Unfortunately, there is a maximum amount that can be garnished from one's pay under New York law. To the extent that it can be shown that the support order exceeds twenty-five percent (25%) of his disposable earnings, they can refuse to honor the order as written.
Your recourse would be to ask the child support authorities to obtain proof of his disposable income in relation to his paycheck. To the extent that child support is not doing its job, you may consider meeting with a local attorney who works in these matters and can review your paperwork. The involvement of such an attorney may also motivate child support to take any additional steps that are not being taken.
Please let me know if you have any other questions on this matter or require clarification. Otherwise please hit "ACCEPT" so I may receive credit for my efforts.
If you have additional questions, please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please consider that I am answering the question or question that is posed in your posting based upon my reading of your post and sometimes misunderstandings can occur. If I did not answer the question you thought you were asking, please respond with the specific question you wanted answered.
Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
There can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.
