I Have Been Receiving Child Support Directly For Years But I Recently Went To Court And The Support Is Now Ordered To Be Paid Through Dcse. Why Is This?

As of July 1998, Virginia law requires that all income withholding orders for child support direct payments to DCSE. In order for DCSE to be able to process your payments timely and accurately, it is essential that DCSE have a copy of your court order and the payroll deduction order. You may also be eligible to apply for DCSE services. Please make sure the court has sent DCSE a copy of your orders. For additional information, call us at 1­800­468­8894.
