Legal Question in Family Law in California

My divorce agreement included a wage garnishments for child and spousal support. The garnishment for spousal support was supposed to end a few months ago. However, my employer continues to deduct it from my earnings and says they need a new wage garnishment order from the court in order to stop deducting it. They will not accept my marital settlement agreement as proof.

What forms do I need to file in order to have the spousal support deduction stopped per the terms of the agreement? I live in California.

Thank you!!

In a general sense, and based solely upon the information that you have provided, you would need to obtain an Amended Order Assigning Wages, and have it served upon your employer.

For a specific opinion regarding your individual circumstances, I suggest that you consult with an experienced family law lawyer. Experience is not expensive, it's priceless!
