Annual Support Fees

ANNUAL SUPPORT FEES 

The Annual Support Fee (ASFE), commonly referred to as a docket fee, is a once a year administrative fee for processing child support payments.  The Annual Support Fee is $55.00 per child support case.   This fee is charged once each year on all child support cases that have an active order for current support and/or arrears owed on the case. 

This fee is paid by the non-custodial parent (NCP) and is owed to the State of Indiana Child Support Bureau.  The fee is to be sent to the Indiana State Central Collection Unit (INSCCU).   

NCPs will receive an ASFE notice by mail from the State of Indiana indicating that their Annual Support Fee is due.  A coupon is provided at the bottom of the notice.  The coupon should be included when mailing the ASFE payment.   

Please note:  Annual Support Fees cannot be paid by credit card through our online payment service.   

Checks or money orders for the Annual Support Fee payments should be made payable to the Indiana State Central Collection Unit (INSCCU) and mailed to:  

INSCCU - ASFE
PO Box 6271
Indianapolis, IN  46206-6271

 Note:  This address is different than the address for regular child support payments.  

To ensure proper credit, ASFE payments must be clearly marked as ASFE.  Regular child support payments cannot be included in the amount submitted for the ASFE.  If the NCP does not pay the entire ASFE amount, an income withholding order may be sent to the NCP’s employer to have the fee withheld from earnings.
