Child Support

Child Support
Our office, in cooperation with the State of Florida Disbursement Unit (SDU), acts as the central depository for receiving, recording, reporting, monitoring and disbursing alimony and child support payments, in accordance with Florida Statutes. Florida law also directs the Clerk of the Circuit Court to process liens for nonpayment of support. Additionally, this division processes court cases filed by the Department of Revenue, Office of Child Support Enforcement, and assists the judiciary during related court proceedings.

Automated Child Support Payment information may be obtained by contacting the State of Florida Disbursement Unit in Tallahassee at (877)769-0251. Clients must have their case number and social security number ready. This will give the amount that was disbursed and the date of disbursement. If the social security number of the absent parent is used, information regarding the balance due is available as well.

The Department of Revenue assists custodial parents (whether married, separated, divorced, or unmarried) with the location of non-custodial parents. The CSE division assists with the establishment of paternity and/or a child support order, and enforcement of child support obligations even if the non-custodial parent resides in another state other than Florida or lives in a foreign country. To con-tact the Department of Revenue in Tallahassee, Florida; please call toll free (800)622-5437.

How long will it take to get my check?

Payments received at the SDU are remitted the following business day.

How can I get child support for my child(ren)?

A court order is required to initiate payment through the Clerk’s Office. You will need to contact a private attorney or the Department of Revenue, Office of Child Support Enforcement for assistance in obtaining a court order.

Do you offer direct deposit?

Yes, for SDU cases only. To have your support payment deposited directly into your bank account, you must complete an authorization form and provide a voided check (for checking ac-counts) or a voided deposit slip (for savings accounts). Call the Child Support Department or the SDU to request an authorization form.
