     Consumer Credit Protection Act - CCPA

The Consumer Credit Protection Act (CCPA) is a law enacted by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division. CCPA limits are expressed as a percentage of the non-custodial parent’s disposable income from which child support can be withheld (between 50 and 65 percent in most states). Disposable income is an individual’s gross income minus the mandatory deductions required by law (including taxes).
 
The total amount to be withheld for both child support and medical support must fall within the CCPA limits.
  • 50 percent - Employee supports a second family, with no arrearage or less than 12 weeks in arrears;
  • 55 percent - Employee supports a second family, and more than 12 weeks in arrears;
  • 60 percent - Employee is single, with no arrearage or less than 12 weeks in arrears;
  • 65 percent - Employee is single, and is more than 12 weeks in arrears.
