Federal and Illinois state law requires that employers are provided with a central location for processing of income withholding for child support orders. To meet this requirement the State of Illinois created the State Disbursement Unit (SDU). Since 10/1/99, all wage deductions for child support obligations have been processed by the SDU. The Will County Circuit Clerk’s Office is committed to assisting the SDU in this effort. More importantly, we are committed to the citizens of Will County who depend on this money to make ends meet. The $36 annual fee is authorized by the Will County Board and is collected and used the Clerk to maintain child support orders and record all payments issued by the SDU for the official record of the court.
