Making Credit/Debit Card Payments is Simple!
There are many options to pay child support with a credit or debit card:
Credit or debit card payments can be made in person at Clermont County’s Child Support Office, 2400 Clermont Center Drive, Suite 107, Batavia, Ohio 45103.
Payments can be made by telephone through your caseworker (see “About Us” tab for caseworker contact information) or call the main child support telephone number (513) 732-7248.
Even though you may receive your support payments via direct deposit or the smiONE Visa pre-paid debit card, you still need to keep your address updated with the agency to ensure continued receipt of important legal documents and/or case status information.
