Paying Child Support

Methods for Paying Child Support

There are a number of methods available for paying child support in Florida. You can make your payments online, by mail or by money transfer. You can make those payments by check, credit card or money order, or you can have them deducted directly from your bank account.

The exact method of payment that you use will depend on your situation and your location. For example, if you do not have a U.S. address, you will not be able to register for online payments. Also, different counties use different systems for payments.

The first time you make a payment, it can be a confusing process. If you do it incorrectly and do not pay your child support, it could result in serious legal consequences.

Do You Pay Too Much Child Support?

Changing your child support payments requires a modification to your court order. This may be possible if there has been a substantial change in circumstances since your child support order went into effect. For example, if you lost your job or had to take a permanent cut in pay, it may be possible to lower your child support payments.
