In this tutorial we will show you how you can receive and make Ohio child support obligation payments online. To do so, follow the step-by-step recommendations.

Each state mandates that all child support payments made to a single central place. This is known as Child Support Payment Central (CSPC) in Ohio, and it is in charge of collecting and disbursing all child support payments made in the state.

Modern technology is used by CSPC to batch, image, and process payments. Every payment that has accurate posting information is processed the same day it is received. Despite the fact that certain payments with incorrect posting information can be investigated and processed the same day they are received, some payments are sent to the exception handling unit for more investigation.
