of the IV-D agency representative if any party is using the child support collection services of the state).

You want to "modify the Income Withholding Order" because:
The amount shown in the "
Income Withholding Order" is wrong or was changed by court order; You have paid up all amounts you owed for past-due support and/or spousal maintenance (alimony), and only have to pay current child support and/or spousal maintenance, which will make your monthly payments go down;
You still owe money for past due child support or spousal maintenance, but the current payments for maintenance or support should stop because the child named on the order has turned 18 and is out of school or one of the other conditions for ending payments listed in the child support order or permitted by law has occurred - so you should pay less;
(Note: If the support order does not state a separate amount PER CHILD, you may need to change the Child Support Order - not the Income Withholding Order).
