If the order is for both spousal and child support, then you can either apply for services with county DCSS and the agency can enforce payment via the State Distribution Unit (SDU). You can also issue your own child support order to the employer: (FL-195). Your family court facilirator's office should have a workshop where the facilitator will assist you in filling out the form and getting it signed by the judge. If not, let me know, and I can walk you through the process via an additional services offer.
However, if the other parent is self employed or controls their receipt of earned income, then your only resource to prevent further delays in payment is to file an order to show cause and affidavit of contempt (FL-410; FL-411) and have the court sanction the other parent so that she does not continue to abuse the system.
