SECTION 15-20-2


§ 15-20-2 Duty of obligor parent to notify department.

(a) When the obligor parent changes employers, the obligor parent shall promptly notify his or her subsequent employer of his or her order for child support and/or health insurance and shall notify the department of administration, division of taxation, child support enforcement, of his or her new employment, and the department shall transfer the assignment, garnishment, or the order for child support and/or health insurance to the subsequent employer.

(b) If an assignment, garnishment, or order for child support and/or health insurance is in effect under this section but cannot be executed because the obligor parent has no employer, the department shall send the assignment, garnishment, or order for child support or health insurance to any employer who later employs the obligor as soon as the new employment is ascertained; provided, that the obligor parent's obligation on the order shall continue, regardless of employment or lack of it, unless suspended by order of the family court.
