952 P.2d 1318, 263 Kan. 638 (Kan. 1998)
January 1998

Income withholding for purposes of enforcement of child support obligations is provided by K.S.A. 23-4,107(b), which states in pertinent part: "Except as otherwise provided in this subsection or in subsection (j), (k) or (m), all new or modified orders for support entered on or after October 1, 1990, in title IV-D cases and all new or modified orders for support entered on or after July 1, 1993, in all other cases shall provide for immediate issuance of an income withholding order. Prior to July 1, 1993, whenever an order of support is entered or modified in a case other than a title IV-D case, the court shall have discretion to order immediate issuance of an income withholding order. The income withholding [952 P.2d 1326] order shall be issued without further notice to the obligor specifying an amount sufficient to satisfy the order for support and to defray any arrearage. The income withholding order shall be issued regardless of whether a payor subject to the jurisdiction of this state can be identified at the time the order for support is entered."
