Make a Payment
When a county Child Support Services (CSS) Unit becomes involved with the enforcement of your court ordered support, you will be required to make your payments to the Family Support Registry. Your child support case may be closed if payments are not made or received through the Family Support Registry.
The Family Support Registry (FSR) Account Number
A unique FSR account number will be assigned to process your payments.
Processing Time Frames
Payments received at the FSR with complete posting information are processed on the same business day they are received. Disbursements are generally issued within two business days of the payment receipt date.
Payment by Mail
Checks and money orders should be made payable to the Family Support Registry and include the following information:
- Your FSR account number
- Your name
- Your court case number
- The amount to remit for each FSR account, if you are paying on multiple FSR accounts
Payments should be mailed to:
Family Support Registry
P.O. Box 2171
Denver, CO 80201-2171
Please do not mail cash payments.
Electronic Payment Methods Using a Checking or Savings Account
The FSR offers two electronic payment methods that can be set up using a United States checking or savings account. Both these payment methods have a one-time 10 day waiting period before the service can be used. The 10 day period allows the FSR to verify your banking information with your financial institution.
Recurring Automatic Withdrawal
This option lets you pay your child support or maintenance payment by authorizing a regularly scheduled withdrawal from your bank account according to the frequency and amount you select. There is no fee for this service. Recurring automatic withdrawal saves you the inconvenience of an envelope and a stamp. It guarantees that the payment is always received on time.
For questions on enrolling in or changing a Recurring Automatic Withdrawal, please call the Family Support Registry at 303-299-9123 or 800-374-6558.
This option is similar to automatic recurring withdrawal except that you decide when you will pay. You will be issued a personal identification number (PIN) to use when you are ready to make a payment. To make your payment you simply call the 'Interactive Voice Response Unit' (IVR) at 303-299-9123 (local) or 1-800-374-6558 (toll-free) and follow the instructions for pay-by-phone. There is no additional fee for this service. You can schedule your payment up to thirty days in advance.
For questions on enrolling in or changing a Pay-By-Phone, please call the Family Support Registry at 303-299-9123 or 800-374-6558.
