Pay My Child Support

Pay Online: Pay child support online with a credit card (Visa or Mastercard) or electronic check (direct debit from a bank account). These services are available for all child support cases that are processed through the State Disbursement Unit (SDU). The funds will be electronically transferred to the SDU for processing.

Online payments can take 2-4 days to process before your account is credited. Please take that into consideration when making your payments, especially if you are trying to meet a deadline.

NOTE: Payments made online are AUTOMATICALLY sent for disbursement to recipients and MAY NOT BE CANCELLED OR REFUNDED by

Log in to pay child support online or set up an account to pay online.

Pay by Income Withholding: The easiest and most convenient way to pay your child support is through income withholding or payroll deduction. If you have a job and your child support payments are not coming out of your paycheck, contact our office and we will help get that set up for you. Having your support payroll deducted will help prevent unnecessary enforcement actions, including driver's license suspension and contempt of court proceedings among other things.

You are responsible for sending support payments to the SDU or paying online until the support is deducted by your employer from your pay.

Pay by Mail: Payments can also be mailed to:

PO Box 8500
Tallahassee, FL 34314-8500

To make sure your payment gets credited to the right account, please write the following on your check or money order:

  • your name
  • social security number
  • case number
