NOTE: The information on this page is for those who have either an open enforcement or a payment processing case with the Arkansas Office of Child Support Enforcement. If you do not have either an open enforcement or a payment processing case, you will not be able to make payments through the Clearinghouse.
There are several options available to choose from for making child support payments. For any method of payment, it is very important that you provide the correct case number to allow us to give you proper credit for your payment. If you are unsure of your case number, contact your local office or the Clearinghouse.
Select one of the links below to find out more about each payment option. If you have questions about any payment method, contact the Arkansas Child Support Clearinghouse at 1-866-428-8382.
I want to pay by:
- Income Withholding (through your employer)
IMPORTANT: If we receive a payment and cannot identify who the payment should go to, you will not get credit for the payment until we can identify it. Be sure to include your case number on all methods of payment. If you are unsure of your case number, contact your local office or the Clearinghouse.
Most child support orders require employers to automatically withhold child support from a noncustodial parent’s paycheck. If you have an open enforcement case with us, we will ensure your employer has a copy of your court order and will provide whatever information they need to start withholding wages from your paycheck.
If you have an open enforcement case with us, and you don’t have an income withholding order in place through your employer, but you’d like to, we can assist you. Contact your local child support office for more information.
If you do not have an open enforcement case (you have a payment processing case), we have no authority to contact your employer to start or stop an income withholding order. You or your attorney can provide your court order to your employer to start income withholding.
IMPORTANT: If your employer fails to withhold a court-ordered child support payment from your pay, you are responsible for making your payment to the Clearinghouse.

MoneyGram is a money transfer service available at many retail locations, such as CVS/pharmacy, Walmart, and more. Find the one nearest you by going to moneygram.com and click the Find a Location tab, or pay online. To make a payment with cash, visit one of the retail locations and provide the following:
- Cash in the amount of your payment plus the fee amount (go to moneygram.com for details)
- Receive Code number: 14650
- Your child support case number
If you are making payments on more than one case, you'll need to purchase a separate MoneyGram per case.
