A child support deduction order is issued to SSA when the CSE is aware that the number
holder (NH) is due a lump sum payment and a portion of, or the entire PMA payment
should be withheld. North Dakota law requires that we hold amounts seized by a Child
Support Deduction Order for 30 days before payment by the Child Enforcement Agency.
This provides the noncustodial parent the chance to contest the seizure.
Establish Child Support Deduction Orders separately from the normal IWO in COGS.
North Dakota CSE revises the Child Support Deduction Order to SSA to add information
to the top of the form as follows: Lump Sum – Special Order – Payment to go to the
Special Account PO Box 7425 in the form of a paper check.
Enter Deduction Order Remittance Number (“DO“) plus the noncustodial parent’s remittance
identifier (e.g., DO1234), as the case number.
Send these paper check payments to the following address, located in COGS under ND
000002 , see SM 00832.200, Processing of the Garnishment System Menu (OGSM), Function
