With the deduction, you are also required to send a statement about whether the amount you are sending totally or partially satisfies the periodic amount specified in the Income Deduction Order. Priority Over Other Collection Processes - The Income Deduction Order has priority over all other legal processes under Georgia law pertaining to the same income, and the payment required by the Income Deduction Order is a complete defense against any claims of the Employee or the Employee's creditors as to the sum paid.
