This calculator is being provided to assist income providers/employers in determining the
appropriate amount of support to deduct and remit for employees with multiple child
support orders. The accuracy of the result is dependent upon the accuracy of the
information you enter in the required fields. This calculator complies with the withholding
requirements pursuant to the Federal Consumer Credit Protection Act and follows the
hierarchy requirements allowing deductions to be first applied to current support amounts
and other obligations second.
