After an order of support has been entered, an order/notice to withhold income for child support will be served on the noncustodial parent’s (NCP’s) employer. The support will be taken out the NCP’s paycheck and forwarded to the Illinois State Disbursement Center in Carol Stream, Illinois. If the NCP does not receive a paycheck they will be required to send child support payments to the State Disbursement Center directly. The State Disbursement Center will disburse the money to the proper party. Child support must be paid through the State Disbursement Center and should not be sent directly to the custodial parent. The State’s Attorney’s Office is not involved with receiving of or distributing child support monies.
