Question to those receiving 'court ordered' child support

How come on the court papers you are to be receiving $_____ much in cs a month you don't get the exact amount once garnishment begins? For example I'm supposed to be receiving $220.14 a month and I know they don't take it all out in one lump sum, just half and half for the month. But instead of receivng $110.07 bi weekly(when ex gets paid) I only receive $102.25. Yes there's the arrears which is only $5. $215.14 for support $5 for arrears. I noticed it also with my bf who pays alimony pendente lite. The court order said $641 and they're only garnishing $592.

You don't receive everything they take. They subtract court fees and stuff from whatever he pays.

It depends on your state, in my state, I would get every penny. Call and ask your worker for a break down of all of the fees that are docked from your support. Sometimes the garnishment is based on 3 or 4 different types of pay periods. When my garnishment paperwork comes out it's really confusing how they breakdown the various pay periods other than once month pay days.

My court papers say $433/mo.

So I get $100/WK.

100*52=5200
5200/12=433

That's how ours is figured.

 He couldn't. At the conference we had to provide pay stubs.

 Is he possibly self-employed?  If not, not real sure, because you should be  recieving the full 1/2 every two weeks to equal the full pay for the month.

The way it gets figured is kind of funny. If you get $220.14 a month you multiply that by 12 (12 mo Ina year) and you get $2641.68. Then take that and divide by 52 (52 weeks in a year) and you get (approx) $50.80 then multiply by 2 (biweekly) and you have your amount. I got $101.60 but I bet they round up then You will get one at the end of the year that is a few cents less.
