Description of Services

• CSS will decide how to collect your child support;
• CSS staff represents only the state of Oklahoma;
• information you give CSS may be shared as required by law if needed to establish or enforce an
order;
• CSS uses the address of record you provide as your public mailing address. Legal and other
official papers will be sent to you by regular mail at this address. If requested, it is given to the
other parent or person in your case or their attorney;
• when family violence is an issue, please give an address of record different from your home
address;
• you must provide your Social Security number;
• all payments must be made through the Oklahoma Centralized Support Registry;
• all payments will be paid into an Oklahoma MasterCard Debit Card account. When CSS receives
your first child support payment, the debit card is sent to you. Contact the toll-free number
located on the back of your card if you have questions;
• if you do not wish to use a debit card, you may call the number on the back of your debit card
and set up direct deposit;
• CSS can sign and negotiate payments related to child support, including cashier and personal
checks, money orders, as well as credit card, debit card, and direct debit payments from your
bank account;
• when you are the noncustodial parent requesting services, your payment methods could include
cashier and personal checks, money orders, as well as credit card, debit card, direct debit
payments from your bank account, and cash payments through kiosks;
• CSS does not accept temporary checks for child support payments;
• CSS may refuse to accept a personal check or direct debit after receiving a non-sufficient funds
notice;
• CSS distributes child support as required by federal and state law. Current support is applied to
the month it is received by CSS;
• some parents pay support for children in more than one household. Payments may be divided so
each household receives a share; and
• if the custodial person received TANF or AFDC, the noncustodial parent's federal tax refund is
taken to repay that debt. Once state debt is repaid, these collections are sent to the family for
past due support.
