You may pay child support and/or maintenance to the Circuit Clerk's Office only if you have been given permission by the judge in a court order. If this is not the case, you will have to make your payments through the Illinois State Disbursement Unit (SDU) using the link below.
You may make the $36 annual fee payment to the Circuit Clerk's Office even if you pay support through the SDU.
The Circuit Clerk’s Office uses Government Payment Services (GPS) to facilitate online court payments. GPS charges a fee for their online service. However, the Circuit Clerk’s Office only collects the amount actually owed.
NOTE1: IF YOU DO NOT RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION NUMBER THE PAYMENT TRANSACTION DID NOT WORK.
NOTE2 : IF YOU ARE PAYING CHILD SUPPORT $36 MAINTENANCE FEES, PLEASE ENTER "CHILD SUPPORT FEES" IN THE RECIPIENT FIELD.
