Can I make electronic child support payments?

If you owe child support, you may have a variety of questions and concerns related to modifying an order or making electronic child support payments in Belleville, Illinois. Failing to pay child support may carry harsh consequences such as time behind bars and costly fines, so you should make sure that your payments are made on time and try to simplify the process as much as possible.

According to the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services, you are able to make electronic child support payments. The DHFS provides an overview of different methods by which you can make electronic payments. For example, you can have the funds automatically deducted from your account, make online credit card payments or use your credit card to pay over the phone.

If you choose to have your child support payments automatically deducted, you will have to pay a registration fee and wait for your account to be verified. You can use your checking or savings account to make payments and you may have to wait as many as five business days before the payments post. Online credit card payments come with a processing fee and may take seven business days to post to your account.

Whether you decide to mail checks or use your credit card to pay online, you should do everything in your ability to avoid child support complications. If you are currently unable to make your payments on time, you may want to look into child support modification to reduce the amount of child support you owe.
