Make A Payment Online

To make a payment online, you can use a credit or debit card, use PayPal, or pay directly from your checking or savings account. These payments are not processed by California Child Support – you will be taken to the California State Disbursement Unit (SDU) website.

Choose from the below two online payment options: 

Option 1: Make a Payment as a Registered User

  • To register, you will need your 13 or 15 digit Participant ID, your Social Security number and your contact information. 
  • Click the Paying Support button to be taken to the SDU website, and select “Non-Custodial Parent”  Please understand that this is an old term and this button will be changing soon – many paying parents have partial or full custody of their children.
  • Log in.
  • Select “Make a Payment.”
  • Follow the instructions to make a payment using your bank account information or a credit or debit card.

Option 2: Make a Single Payment Without Registering

  • Please note, you can make a payment online without registering on the website, but if you do register you can set up recurring payments or future date payments, and have a convenient record of your transactions.
  • To make a payment without registering, you will need your 13 or 15 digit Participant ID number and your Social Security number.
  • Click the Paying Support button to be taken to the SDU website, and select the “Pay Without Registering” option. 
  • Enter the requested information to make a payment using your bank account information or a credit or debit card.
