Definition: Purge payments are ordered by the court in order for an NCP to be released from jail after being found in contempt of non-payment of support.
Have you been ordered by the court to make a purge payment? If so, please allow 3-4 business days for processing of the payment through the MyChildSupport Portal. Once the payment has been applied to your case, you can view your payment history to ensure receipt of the payment. If you need to provide a receipt of payment prior to the 3-4 business days, please visit your local district office to make payment at kiosk (fees may apply).
As it stands for mailed payments, upon request, DCSE will send a payment record for confirmation of receipt of the purge payment to a party. Generally, DCSE does not monitor the case for purge payments when an NCP has been incarcerated for child support. Only if instructed to do so by the court or upon request from a party, DCSE will send information to the court to confirm receipt of the purge payment.
