Helping Families Achieve Self-Sufficiency

The Child Support Enforcement (CSE or IV-D) Program is a joint Federal & State effort to help families establish paternity (when necessary), obtain orders for payment of child support, and secure compliance with child support court orders. One of the goals of the Child Support Enforcement Program is to help families achieve self-sufficiency because the non-payment of child support is a key factor contributing to the impoverishment of children.

Alabama now offers two new ways to pay your child support. Payments may be made by using ExpertPay or MoneyGram.  For more information on how to sign up and make a payment using one of these methods go to or
