No, child support has nothing to do with the military....

How long has your son been in? He should know that he can start an allotment and this allotment can be tracked forever....to be on the safe side for future reference....

Unfortunately, if you want the court to do it, they add money to the total payment, ask me how I know....

Chucksnee, my son is in his 2nd training and only been in the military for a few months now so we are still new to this... his child support is through court order.. when he register his child into the program he just thought the chidsupport would be deducted from his check since he gave them (military) all the information from the court (and was told it would be)... so that is why i ask i wasn't sure if he had to set up anything him self or if the payment automatically comes out.. i did read about the allotment and i will tell him when i talk to him.. he hasn't been able to do anything since he out on the field training.


Thank you for you information..

I did read about the Allotment but i was confuse on how that work if he had to set it up him self, he did give the military all the info on the court order so he just thought maybe they would take it out of his checks automatically...

Yes, tell him to set up an allotment....all he needs to do is talk to his SGT/SSG and tell them WHY, and they will/should take care of him....

Was the court order while he was in the military? If not, then go back and tell the court to start a deduction...might cost a little more...but 15 years down the road...and she says a payment has been missed, he will be thank full when that time comes...

There is a difference between child support that was court-ordered and child support that was basically suggested by a case worker at an agency. If they went to court - in front of a judge - then chances are, those payments are automatic and can't be changed. If they didn't, then there is a chance he can have the arrangement changed. The mother has to agree to it though. If he tries to change it without her consent, then things could get ugly...at that point she can get his job involved by going to his chain of command. There won't be any need for that if they come to an agreement AND if it isn't court-ordered though.
