Income withholding from paychecks is required by law for most child support cases. Make a web-based payment when the court has not ordered income withholding or if you need to supplement existing income withholding payments. Existing income withholding orders cannot be terminated and replaced with web-based payments. Web-based payments will not prevent the implementation of an income withholding order.
If you need to report the availability of income withholding with a new employer, please go to "Manage My Personal Information" on the Parents Portal to update your employment information. You may still make a payment using any of the other methods listed on this page until payments are withheld by your employer to avoid missing any payments.
You can make NC Child Support Services support payments at any Walmart nationwide.

Payments can be made with cash or debit card. A $2.00 service fee applies in addition to the payment amount.
