Virginia Online Child Support Payment System Gains Popularity

Unfortunately, many divorced parents have difficulty securing regularly scheduled child support payments from their former spouses. Virginia has adopted an online portal through which child support payments may be made. It experienced a significant increase in usage in 2012.  

According to a 2013 article on HamptonRoads.com/PilotOnline, the $4KIDS program and other electronic payment services saw a nearly 16 percent collective increase in 2012, or approximately 30,000 transactions, and an increase of payments of around 18 percent, totaling $42.6 million. 

This online system was first instituted in 2007 and updated in 2009. Since the 2009 update, nearly $100 million in child support payments have been processed. The Virginia Department of Social Services and Virginia Interactive (the company that maintains the online system) report that 2012 monthly transactions averaged $3.5 million, representing an increase of $1.2 million per month. 

The online system affords non-custodial parents and employers the opportunity to make consistent child support payments free of charge, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Virginia DSS officials claim that the portal routes child support to custodial parents and children more quickly and efficiently and saves Virginia taxpayers money by cutting reducing the agency’s administrative costs. 

An experienced child support attorney can help you secure regular child support payments for your dependent children and learn more about the options available for receiving payments in Virginia. Darrell M. Harding, Attorney at Law has more than 20 years of experience serving families in Norfolk, Chesapeake and Virginia Beach.
