Can child or spousal support be collected directly from a federal retirement benefit?

Yes. Same way, except if they're retired, the garnishment order for income goes to OPM offices in Boyers, Pennsylvania. You can garnish retirement income with a court order for child support, spousal support, and you can garnish a thrift savings plan.
