How Does a Parent Avoid Paying Child Support if His/Her Employer Garnishes Their Paycheck for It?

They don’t.*

They don’t because their employer automatically garnishes child support from the parent’s paycheck.

The only way to prevent their employer from garnishing child support from their paycheck is by not getting a paycheck from the employer.

Indeed, this is what many parents whose paychecks are garnished for child support payments realize, and if such parents don’t want their paychecks garnished any longer, some of them quit their job with that employer and then try to find a job where they can keep the fact that they owe child support a secret, so that their paychecks are not garnished for the payment of child support.

*So, as you can see, not exactly.
