If you have an open case with Child Support Services and DO NOT pay through wage withholding, you have several payment options:
- Pay by check or money order—send payments to:
California State Disbursement Unit
P.O. Box 989067
West Sacramento, CA 95798
- Make a single debit / credit card payment (Visa or Mastercard only) over the telephone at (866) 901-3212 or pay online at the State Disbursement Unit
- Set up ongoing (recurring) automatic withdrawals from your checking or savings account online at the State Disbursement Unit
- Set up future payments from your checking or savings account online at the State Disbursement Unit
Attention: If a wage assignment is in place, payment by credit or debit card will NOT stop the wage assignment.
