How Are Payments Made Under a Support Order?

A mandatory income attachment will issue unless the defendant is not in arrears in payment in an amount equal to or greater than one month's support obligation and (1) the court finds that there is good cause not to require immediate income withholding; or (2) a written agreement is reached between the parties which provides for an alternate arrangement.

Payments must be made to the Pennsylvania State Collection and Disbursement Unit (PA SCDU) by check or money order. All checks and money orders must be made payable to PA SCDU and mailed to:
P.O. Box 69110
Harrisburg , PA 17106-9110

Payments must include the defendant's PACSES Member Number or Social Security Number in order to be processed.
