• Ask your employer to deduct your child support payments from your pay.

• Pay through the State Disbursement Unit (SDU) via automatic withdrawal, credit card, or check

• Pay in cash at our drive-up window or in our lobby at 50 Douglas Drive in Martinez.

The lobby is open Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 pm, and the drive-up window is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Both are closed on holidays.

• Use the Mobile Arrears Calculator tool to identify how many payments and how much interest will accrue based on principle and interest balances considering a monthly payment amount.
