4613. The court shall not issue an order pursuant to this article
unless the court determines that one or more of the following
(a) The obligor-parent is not receiving salary or wages subject to
an assignment pursuant to Chapter 8 (commencing with Section 5200)
and there is reason to believe that the obligor-parent has earned
income from some source of employment.
(b) An assignment of a portion of salary or wages pursuant to
Chapter 8 (commencing with Section 5200) would not be sufficient to
meet the amount of the support obligation, for reasons other than a
change of circumstances which would qualify for a reduction in the
amount of child support ordered.
(c) The job history of the obligor-parent shows that an assignment
of a portion of salary or wages pursuant to Chapter 8 (commencing
with Section 5200), would be difficult to enforce or would not be a
practical means for securing the payment of the support obligation,
due to circumstances including, but not limited to, multiple
concurrent or consecutive employers.
