FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CHILD SUPPORT WAGE DEDUCTIONS INVESTIGATED BY FATHERS’ RIGHTS
ATTORNEY JEFFERY LEVING
CHICAGO, IL—June 4, 2012—Noted Fathers’ Rights Attorney Jeffery Leving
(http://dadsrights.com) announced that he is conducting an investigation on whether
employers make unlawful deductions from the paychecks of Illinois employees who pay
child support through automatic payroll deductions.
The investigation will decipher whether employers have violated the Illinois Wage
Payment and Collection Act, which states that employers are allowed to deduct an
administrative fee, no more than $5.00 per month, from the paychecks of employees
paying child support. Employers who violate the Illinois state law may be required to pay
current and former employees any wages that were unlawfully deducted and other
damages. All current and former employees in Illinois who are paying or who have paid
child support through automatic deductions from their paychecks may have a claim.
Attorney Leving, a passionate litigator who has fought for justice for families for over 30
years, said fathers often get the short end of the stick when it comes to child support.
Leving has recently authored a new book, How to Be a Good Divorced Dad, which has
garnered praise from President Barack Obama and has been endorsed by Francis
Cardinal George of the Archdiocese of Chicago, who said “This is a pain-filled book that
offers good advice about how to preserve a family born of a marriage that has failed. It’s
a book that is, unfortunately, more and more needed.”
