What does the child support payment process look like?


All Child Support payments are processed through the Michigan State Disbursement Unit, (MiSDU). When a payment is made with correct information included with it, (docket numbers and SSN), it will be applied to the appropriate case(s) within 3 to 5 business days. Bad or missing addresses, not enough identifying information on the check, a delay in receiving payment from an employer, and/or a post office holiday can cause payment delays.
