Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
Do you have a copy of the order from the judge setting the duration of the payments?
Ok, then I would suggest giving a copy of that to your employer as it is a legally binding order from the judge and your employer can rely on that in terminating any payments once the last payment is made. They don't need anything additional from the court to stop taking out any deductions.
That order from the judge would be the statement that they can rely on. There is nothing more official than a formal order from a judge. Anything else would just be redundant.
I would also mention to the Payroll Dept that if any further payments are taken out after the last payment specified in the judge's order, you will hold them responsible if you have to sue to get it back. That should scare them enough once they get a copy of the order to not risk objecting.
You are very welcome. Glad to help any time.
