This is a follow up to our previous article named: North Carolina Child Support at A Glance published on June 6, 2022, especially for child support payment.
After child support has been established, collection and distribution are enforceable.
When a child support amount and frequency of support payments are established by Court Order, separation agreement or by Voluntary Support Agreement, it becomes effective as of the date set out in the executed document.
While most payments in North Carolina are made payable to and handled by North Carolina Child Support Centralized Collections (NCCSCC), sometimes the relevant document may call for direct party to party payments. Payments are made directly to NCCSCC, through income withholding, or interception of tax refunds. Further, child support judgments may lead to bank account garnishment.
- Direct Payments are made through automatic bank drafts, or mail their personal check, cashier’s check, or money order payable to NC Child Support payment directly to:
NC Child Support Centralized Collections

- Income Withholding is the most efficient and reliable method for child support collection as long as the obligor is working. Once presented with a court order, employers must withhold child support from an obligor’s wages, then submit these wage withholding payments to NCCSCC by check or Electronic Funds Transfer/Electronic Data Interchange within seven business days.
- Interception of tax refunds or garnishment happen through mechanisms instituted by Child Support Services and tend to be very efficient.
- The NCCSCC Customer Service Center serves as the gateway for all questions about collecting and enforcing child support. If you have a concern about your child support case, please call the Child Support Customer Service line toll-free at 1-800-992-9457; or at link https://www.ncdhhs.gov/.
