Denton, TX asked in Child Support for Ohio

Q: Can the Ohio child support agency garnish wages for admin fees only and Claim its for child support?

I have a received a letter stating garnishment of wages for child support. I do not owe child support but do owe an admin fee. The letter sent to my employer claims the garnishment is for child support. This is from the Hamilton county child support agency. I have called several times and have verified that I do not owe any child support at all.
