Yes, in North Carolina the child support enforcement agency can automatically garnish the paying parent’s income. In order to garnish, you simply must owe child support - not be behind on the child support payment.
Also, I am not sure what you mean by getting child support back from her, but unless you have this in an agreement somewhere, this also will not happen under child support enforcement. Best of luck.
