Amended Florida Family Law Form 12.996(a) clears up confusion about existing federal and Florida income deduction orders (IDOs) and notices.
For income deduction for child support, the federal government, under sections 466(a)(1), (a)(8) and 466 (b)(6)(A)(ii) of the Social Security Act, requires that states use an Income Withholding Order (IWO) for the deduction of child support.
