Home How To Make Child Support Payments in Arizona


When an Arizona judge orders you to pay child support you need to be sure that you do it at the right time and in the right manner. We have found that many of those needing to make child support payments aren’t sure how to make their child support payments. Those needing to make these payments need to make their payments on time and in the correct amount or they could potentially be held in contempt. To avoid these consequences we want to help clarify how to make child support payments in Arizona. When you are ordered to make child support payments the judge will generally instruct you to make your payment directly to the Arizona Support Payment Clearinghouse, but the instructions given are oftentimes confusing to most. If you make a payment directly to your other parent of your children, this payment might be considered a gift and it might not count as the court-ordered payment so it is important that you follow the correct process to avoid any long-term issues.

Steps to Make Arizona Child Support Payments

Step 1: Know your Case Number and Amount of the Payment

Find from your court documents, the ATLAS case number, and the amount that you will need to pay in child support. Be sure to include your name and the ATLAS case number on any payment to ensure that you get credit for making the payment.   Payments are made to the Arizona Support Payment Clearinghouse, which is run by the Arizona Department of Economic Security (DES).

Where can I find the ATLAS number?

An ATLAS number was assigned to your case so that payments could be tracked. The number is possibly included in the order to pay the child support. If the number is not included in the order, you may call (602) 506-3762 to obtain the ATLAS number.
