Kiosks offer new option to make child support payments

By  | 

RICHMOND, Va. (NEWSPLEX) -- People who need to pay child support in Virginia have new options to do so in Virginia.

The state Division of Child Support Enforcement now accepts credit and debit cards at touchscreen kiosks in all of its district offices.

"In partnership with TouchPay, as subsidiary of GTL, DCSE expands the payment options available to non-custodial parents," said Craig M. Burshem, DCSE's Deputy Commissioner. "Non-custodial parents can pay by using payment kiosks located in a DCSE district office, dial in to an interactive voice response system, or visit an Internet-based payment portal, all using their credit or debit card."

The kiosks in the 20 district offices also accept cash payments.

According to a release, increasing the payment options for those who own child support has resulted in more than $3 million in collections since September of last year, which is also when the first TouchPay kiosk was installed.
