Thanks for your patience; a few minutes more please.
There are limits on how much of one's paycheck can be garnished (deducted from pay); so if one's income is lower due to less hours that pay period, there can be a cap on the amount that can be taken. Up to 50% of one's disposable earnings may be garnished to pay child support if the obligor is currently supporting a spouse or a child who isn't the subject of the order. If one isn't supporting a spouse or child, up to 60% of their earnings may be taken.
The amount delinquent becomes past due, and can be collected by other means such as income tax refund interception, liens, etc. This agency will help collect on child support for free/low fees (typically no more than $25 a year): https://www.childsupport.ny.gov/dcse/ncp_support_enforcement.html
This explains the services provided by the child support unit, along with enforcement options.

as I am an individual contributor and rely on positive ratings to receive compensation for providing the requested information - this does not result in additional charges to the customer, but rather allows the site to credit my account a percentage to compensate me for my time.
CPS does not determine any modification issues regarding court ordered custody/visitation- rather the judge is the arbiter and makes the decision as to what is in the best interests of the child.
I hope you have found the information I provided useful. If so kindly rate positively- it does not cost anything more, but helps me greatly. thank you!
