I'm the non-custodial parent. Where do I send my child support payments?

  1. If your support order tells you to send payments to the Washington State Support Registry or you received a notice from DCS to send your payments to WSSR, send your payments to the following address:
    Washington State Support Registry
    PO Box 45868
    Olympia, WA 98504-5868

    To insure accurate processing, please be sure your Social Security Number is clearly noted on your payment.
  2. For your convenience, DCS offers Electronic Funds Transfer - EFT options for paying child support. A non-custodial parent can register and make payments using the Division of Child Support Internet Payment Service. To register or view a demo, visit our web site at http://www.dcsonline.dshs.wa.gov.

  3. Click here to obtain an authorization form. An EFT deduction or Internet Payment cannot replace federally mandated wage withholding. If your case requires DCS to establish wage withholding, we will continue to do so. For more information regarding EFT, please contact our EFT Customer Service Unit at 1-800-468-7422.

  4. If you receive a notice from another state to send your support payments to their child support agency, contact the other state. Be sure to tell them if you are currently sending your payments to WSSR. They will tell you where to send your future child support payments.

  5. Send payments as directed by your support order unless you received a notice from a child support agency to send payments to them.
