After a divorce, a parent may be court-ordered to make monthly child support payments for the sake of their child's care, health and education. Should they fail to make these payments at any point before the terms are ended, they may be forced to do so under K.S.A. § 23-3101. This section of the Kansas Statutes states that the parent could have their wages garnished in order to "enforce orders of support and to provide children access to health coverage under their parents' health benefits plan." After an income withholding order is issued, their wages could be withheld to cover their delinquent payments.
