In 1999, federal law required the State of Florida to collect child support through a state disbursement unit (SDU). All payments are mailed to the State Disbursement Unit and are rapidly disbursed. To find out the status of a payment, you can either call the SDU’s customer service line at (877) 769-0251 or go online to to view the last three transactions on your case, or you can always call the Clerk office in the county in which your support was ordered.

The ability to make an online payment is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for all child support cases paid through the SDU through, so collect child support in the right way.

Every marriage, every parenting plan, is unique.  While this article expresses general guidelines, it is still just that, general, and guidelines.  Do not rely on this for legal advice, and always consult with an attorney on matters as important as divorce, family law, parenting plans, and of course, child support.
