The non-custodial parent is obligated to pay the child support themselves. It is possible for the non-custodial parent to serve you with a court order requiring you to deduct child support before you pay your worker. Those orders are far more common when someone is a full-time employee than with a contractor working a one-time job. However, you're not obligated to do withholding unless or until you get a court order.
