What is an income deduction order?

An income deduction order (often referred to IDO) is simply a court order that requires the non-custodial parent’s employer to deducted a specified amount from their wages and submit the payment to the State.  The Department of Human Services, Division of Child Support Services will establish an account for your case.  Once a payment has been submitted and processed, the payment will transfer the funds to the Custodial parent’s account.  You can obtain the funds via direct deposit or a debit card provided to you by the State.
