Can the state garish child support from the father's checking account or savings account??? Say, if he wouldn't or couldn't pay???? What if???

Say, if the father is going to do the right thing and pay the child support after his lawyer sets everything up and has the amount taken out of his checks every pay period.
Wouldn't that stop the state from going to that extreme
to take action by garishing monies in his checking account??? I look at it this away, if he pays then that's good and hopefully the state won't have to result to that level. (((All comments welcome!!!)))

Because many states have instituted a policy of garnishment right at the time a court order is put into place. It is to save future court issues, like if the NCP decides to stop paying voluntarily later. And it makes it easier to just handle all of the cases in the same manner with automatic garnishment up front.

I personally haven't seen them go after someone's bank account but I know they can and will if necessary. I think they usually try other remedies first like jail, suspending licence, etc. But if you already have something in the works and being set up, I don't think you'll have a problem with that.
