If you are the obligee, (the party ordered to receive support payments), you may have the support payments sent directly to your bank account. This process eliminates the possibility of checks being lost in the mail. You may mail or deliver the completed forms to:
Clerk of Superior Court
201 W. Jefferson, Family Support Services, 1st Floor
Phoenix, AZ. 85003
Electronic Payment Card (EPC)
The new Arizona Electronic Payment Card (EPC) is safer and more convenient than paper checks. With the Arizona Electronic Payment Card, you can access your cash 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) and retail Point-of-Sale terminals throughout Arizona and across the country.
If you are the obligor, (the party ordered to make support payments), and are not subject to an Income Withholding Order, you may have the support payments taken directly from your bank account and deposited into the Support Payment Clearinghouse's bank account. If in the future you become subject to an Income Withholding Order you must inform the Clearinghouse. This process ensures timely support payments and eliminates the possibility of checks being lost in the mail.
