Withholding made without regard to other claims--Complete defense by payor to
claims of obligor.
Withholding of income under this chapter shall be made without regard to any
prior or subsequent legal process under state law, including garnishments, attachments, wage
assignments, or any other claims of creditors. Payment as required by the order for withholding shall
be a complete defense by the payor against any claims of the obligor or the obligor's creditors as to
the sum so paid. A payor who complies with an order for withholding of income that is regular on
its face is not subject to civil liability to any individual or agency for any conduct which is in
compliance with the order.
