In Texas, the Texas State Disbursement Unit (SDU) is the centralized location and processes the following types
of child support payments:
Additional federally mandated procedures include the following:
A “Notice of Place of Payment” is used to redirect child support payments from a local
registry to OAG’s SDU. OAG, and some counties, issue this notice to employers informing them
that child support is to be paid to the Texas SDU. At times, the notice is included with the
Order/Notice To Withhold Income For Child Support.
