Q: How does my daycare order work?
A: The most common daycare order states that the noncustodial parent must pay a percentage of the daycare costs (for example, if the cost of daycare is $100 and the noncustodial parent is responsible for 40%, the dollar amount of the order is $40).
Q: How is my daycare order enforced?
A: If a noncustodial parent fails to make 4 weeks worth of daycare payments, SES can start court action to collect the money. If the court determines that the daycare order was not paid, the order can be converted from a percentage to a set dollar amount. That amount can be added to the income withholding order.
