Dh just started paying child support. When we signed the papers I asked our lawyer how/who we pay. She acted like it was a silly question, that we just give the mom the check each month. I thought there was state department we paid and they paid her. She said no. Anyway, we just go this form "welcoming us" to the state disbursement unit system where it appears we can make payments on line. I tried looking for info. on the website but it implies that ALL child support payment are made through this department, that paying an individual is not an option. Plus, all the paperwork calls dh the non-custodial parent and he has full physical custody. I don't know if that needs to be corrected.
