I am divorced and paying child support. I make every payment in full and on time. My ex now wants to garnish my wages instead. I am against this as I feel this makes me look like a deadbeat dad. So I have a few questions. Does a wage garnishment for child support require a court order? would I be notified so that I can dispute in court? finally, do I have the right to say no to wage garnishment since I am paying on time. That is, would a court see this favorably on my behalf since I have abided by the agreement in its entirety.

you wife does have the right to have your wages garnished through the State of Illinos You should receive notice if she does file a motion
