Paying Support

Non-custodial parents are responsible for paying all of the ordered child support. There are programs and other information that may be helpful to the non-custodial parent in meeting this obligation. 

There are several ways for non-custodial parents and employers to make child support payments.


The CSSD Clearinghouse processes payments, including receiving payments, posting payments, and disbursing payments.  The clearinghouse also updates employer information (as appropriate). Information about payments that have been received by CSSD is available through one of CSSD’s automated systems.
