Child Support

The Child Support Enforcement division, in cooperation with the State of Florida Disbursement Unit (SDU), acts as the central depository for receiving, recording, reporting, monitoring and disbursing alimony and child support payments, in accordance with Florida Statutes, Section 61.181.

Automated Child Support Payment information may be obtained by contacting the State of Florida Disbursement Unit in Tallahassee at (877) 769-0251. Clients must have their nine-digit case number and Social Security Number ready. This will give the amount that was disbursed and the date of disbursement. If the Social Security Number of the absent parent is used, information regarding the balance due is available as well.

The Child Support Enforcement (CSE) division assists custodial parents (whether married, separated, divorced, or unmarried) with the location of non-custodial parents. The CSE division assists with the establishment of paternity and/or a child support order, and enforcement of child support obligations even if the non-custodial parent resides in another state other than Florida or lives in a foreign country.
