If there was an agreement and entered by the court, the problem is that Child support enforcement's attorneys never seem to communicate with the division that does the seizures and garnishments. Your attorney needs to file an exception to seizure based on the defense of "settlement" which is grounds for the court to release the seizure. Since this was done after the settlement, your attorney can also file a motion for sanctions to ask for the payment of your costs and attorney's fees to go to court to fight their improper seizure after settlement was reached.
This is how you would get this seizure released through the court as you have a right to object before they take the money out, so you need to contact your attorney immediately to do so.
Thank you for your reply.
If you did not object to the seizure within the 10 days of getting notice, your attorney is correct. So now that they took the money, your attorney needs to file a motion to cancel the settlement, since you paid all that was agreed upon to pay and you should not owe any more money and her saying "sorry" but nothing more is not correct, she needs to go to court to at least get a court order to order the entire arrears debt satisfied.
