R527-302-2. Income Withholding Fees.

1. When the Office of Recovery Services/Child Support Services (ORS/CSS) initiates income withholding against a payor of income for payment of an obligor's child support, the payor of income may deduct a one-time $25.00 fee to offset the administrative costs it incurs to process the withholding pursuant to Rule 64D, Utah Rules of Civil Procedure, and Subsection 78A-2-216(1)(b).
