Employer Payment Processing
This information is for child support payments only. Other garnishments such as small claims, bankruptcies, etc. will continue to be processed by the Clerk's Office.
The Annual Support Fee (ASFE) of $55.00 should be paid to the Indiana State Centralized Collection Unit (INSCCU) rather than to the County Clerk's Office. At the beginning of each year the Non-Custodial Parent (NCP) is sent a notice that the $55.00 ASFE is due. However, if the NCP does not pay the fee, the state Child Support Bureau will send an ASFE Income Withholding Order (IWO) to the employer for payment in the spring of each year.
Instructions for making the payment will be included in the IWO. The ASFE payment can be made by check with a copy of the notice included and sent to the PO Box listed on the notice. The fee can also be made via our online payment system or electronically by EFT/EDI. Please make sure you follow the instructions on the ASFE IWO closely when processing ASFE payments by EFT/EDI. If you have questions about the ASFE payment, please contact the Employer Hotline at 1-800-292-0403. NOTE: The ASFE IWO does not change how or where you send your regular child support payments for your employees.
