IWO form (with Texas options prefilled)
Introduction and Overview
An Income Withholding for Support Order (IWO) orders an employer to withhold child support, cash medical support, and/or spousal support/maintenance from an employee’s paycheck.
An IWO is always based on a separate order to the employee to pay support – usually as part of a divorce, paternity case, or suit affecting the parent-child relationship (SAPCR).
You may ask the court to sign an IWO if you are the person ordered to pay support or the person ordered to receive support.
Note: If the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) Child Support Division is actively involved in your case, they will issue the IWO administratively.
