Important Safety Information

We share your address and other identifying information with other state and federal agencies. We share this information only for child support reasons. The information may become available to the other parent. Contact us immediately if the following conditions exist:

  • Your case information should not be given out because of family violence.
  • Going through the child support process poses a threat to you or your child(ren).

If you have concerns about you or your child(ren)'s safety, there are some protections available in the child support process. Please visit our Child Support and Family Violence web page.


Please be aware that our attorneys represent the State of Texas. They provide child support, medical support, and dental support services, but they do not represent you or any other individual.

Annual Service and Monthly SDU Fees

Monthly SDU Fee
Custodial parents who receive registry-only payment processing and record-keeping services through the State Disbursement Unit (SDU) will be charged a $3 monthly fee for each month that a child support payment of more than $3 is received. The fee will be deducted from your child support payment.

Annual Service Fee
Federal law requires an annual service fee and a monthly State Disbursement Unit (SDU) service fee to be paid. For more information regarding these fees, please visit the Child Support Fees web page.
