A: Send the name and address of your new employer to the Friend of the Court (you are required to do so within 30 days of changing employment). The FOC will do a new income withholding for the new employer. However, there will be a delay in getting the new order going and so money won't be coming out of your check right away. You may wish to make a direct payment to FOC so you don't get in an arrears situation.
