If you owe child support, you need to familiarize yourself with a number of issues. For example, you need to review the potential consequences associated with falling behind on payments and you need to do whatever you can to ensure that you stay current.

Aside from creating a payment plan or saving money, some people benefit from reviewing the different ways in which they can pay child support. In fact, you can make payments online, which is very convenient for many parents.

How to make online child support payments

Many parents have child support withheld by their employer, but some (such as those who are self-employed) have to make payments on their own every month. According to the Attorney General of Texas’ website, you can make child support payments online using your credit card or your debit card.

If you decide to make online payments, there are a number of things you need to keep in mind. For example, you will have to provide personal information, such as your name, address, email address and social security number. You also need to make sure you provide the correct case number.

Other online child support payment considerations

There are some other things to recognize when it comes to paying support online. For example, you need to remember that it can take up to seven business days to process your payment. Moreover, you will also need to pay fees that will not apply to your child support balance.

If you would prefer to pay child support another way, you have other options as well. Make sure you stay caught up on child support in order to avoid serious penalties.
