What to Include With Your Child Support Payment

Whenever sending payment, you should include your name and ATLAS case number, if applicable, to ensure you are properly credited and experience no unnecessary delays.

The clearinghouse also requests that you not send any correspondence along with your payment.

The process is outlined clearly, but mailing addresses have not been included.

If you wish to mail in your child support, we suggest obtaining the mailing address directly from the child support offices to ensure that it is accurate and up to date at all times.
