Almost all of the child
support that is ordered by the Denton County District
Courts is now directed to be paid through the State
Disbursement Unit in San Antonio “SDU” for accounting
and disbursement. Any questions regarding receipt,
disbursement, address changes, etc… should be directed
to the SDU. The address and phone for the SDU is:
Texas Child Support SDU
PO Box 659791
San Antonio, Texas
Exceptions are those cases
that the order for child support is dated before January 1,
1994. The majority of the older cases still require child
support to be sent to the Denton County District Clerk.
For those cases where payments
are still required to be sent to the District Clerk our goal
is to have all payments posted and distributed the same day
that they are received by the District Clerk. Most of the
time we are able to do so, however, there are days when the
number of payments exceed our time and ability to handle all
of the payments that are received in one day. This normally
occurs around the 1st and the 15th of
each month and on the days after County offices have been
closed for a holiday. Payments that do not get processed the
same day that they are received will be posted and
distributed the next working day.
The Denton County Child
Support office is NOT an enforcement office. If you are not
being paid the support that is owed to you, then you must
contact either a private attorney or the Office of the
Attorney General, Child Support Enforcement Division for
enforcement of your support order.
The satellite office for the
Child Support Enforcement Division of the Attorney General’s
Office that is responsible for Denton County is located in
Plano, Texas. Their contact information is:
