Paying Child Support

Please note: 

As of Monday, Nov 15, Division of Child Support lobbies are reopened to the public. To provide a safe environment for customers and staff, we require everyone to self-screen against COVID-19 symptoms, sign in, practice distancing, and wear a mask. Payments in Child Support offices are currently suspended. We are still happy to help you by phone at 800-442-KIDS (5437).

Thank you for your patience as we continue to respond to COVID-19.

Most child support is paid by withholding wages, however there are also several other options for making payments.

  • Secure Access Washington (SAW) is Washington State's secure payment portal.  Follow the steps for opening or accessing your SAW account. For a step-by-step guide to opening a SAW account, watch this video.
  • Regular deductions from your bank account. Find out how to get that started.
  • By mail. Please clearly print your Social Security Number on your payment.

Other ways to pay

The Division of Child Support (DCS) works with outside vendors to provide many ways to make a child support payment. The vendors below are private companies that have gone through a careful selection process and met strict security requirement to contract with us. However, they may have different privacy or security policies than DCS. If you have concerns about those policies you should read the vendor's website or contact them for more information. As private companies, each of these vendors charges a fee for their service. Once we receive a payment from a vendor and match it to your account, we give you credit. These payments can take three to five days to process.
