CLERK of CIRCUIT COURT DIRECT DEPOSIT INFORMATION

WHAT IS DIRECT DEPOSIT?

The Central Depository uses direct deposit to electronically disperse alimony or child support payments directly into the bank account of the party receiving support.

HOW DOES IT WORK?
When a payment posts to your child support or alimony case, your bank is electronically notified to credit your account. In most cases, banks receive these payments in three to ten business days.

WHY SIGN UP FOR DIRECT DEPOSIT?
Please consider the following benefits, which you will enjoy when your support payments are deposited directly into your bank account:

1. Payments are always confidential.
2. Payments are not subject to postal delays. Payments are not lost or stolen.
3. Payments self-deposit effortlessly.
4. Payments always arrive quickly and safely, regardless of whether you are homebound, ill or on vacation.

HOW DO I KNOW I HAVE A PAYMENT?
Choose one of these options to check the status of your support payment.

1. Contact your bank.
2. Contact Central Depository.
