Kern County Child Support - Payments


Regular monthly child support payments help ensure children’s needs are met. Making your child support payment regularly every month communicates that you want to create a better life for your child/ren.

Child support payments are due on the first of every month and should be made no later than the 20th of each month to allow for mailing and processing time. If your payment is received late, your past due balance is subject to interest charges. Payments (cash or check) made in our offices will be sent to the State Disbursement Unit (SDU), please allow for mailing and processing time. To make an online payment click the link below:
