The most common way to make a child support payment is through your employer and an income wage withholding order. The CSEA will receive the Court Order and will contact your employer regarding the court ordered amount to deduct from your check. The withholding order is based on a monthly amount and is then broken down into installments based on the obligor’s pay schedule (e.g. weekly; bi-weekly; 1st and 15th of the month; or monthly basis). The CSEA receives the funds, distributes the funds accordingly, and releases the child support amount usually within 48 hours. If we do not receive any funds, we cannot release any funds.
Payment by Credit Card

Income or Wage Withholding
It’s easy and it’s automatic—one less thing to think about!
What if I’m Unemployed?
If you are unemployed, the CSEA will work with Unemployment Compensation (UC) to get an income wage withhold order. The wage withhold from UC will address the child support order but will NOT include the administrative fee(s). You will be responsible for paying the difference
Once you have a new job, the CSEA will work with your new employer to establish a new wage withhold order.
