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.  Go to their website https://www.texasattorneygeneral.gov/cs/welcome-to-the-child-support-division if you have questions or want to apply for their services.
