Virginia Online Child Support Payment System Gains Popularity
- posted: Apr. 12, 2014
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.

Mr Thomas F. Harding is an Attorney that I admire and very knowledgeable, He started on my case in May of 2019 and still in progress and soon to be over, but when I first went to Mr Harding office I was so afraid to go forward with my divorce because my husband is a mean man and he told me that he wasn't going to let me go, nor was he going anywhere I thought my life was over until Mr Harding explain everything and I knew that he had my best interest at heart and his soft voice gave me reassurance that it will be alright and with his loving secretary Mrs Raquel Knight they work together and I was bless and I thank God for them and I have two new friends now and I will be dropping in to see them occasionally, God bless Mr Thomas F Harding for all that you do for others, A job well done!
