Starting this month, parents will be able to pay their child support in cash at thousands of MoneyGram locations throughout California.
Previously, parents paying child support in cash could only do so by visiting a county or regional local child support agency that accepts in-office payments. In Yolo County, the Child Support Services office is located at 100 West Court Street in Woodland. Those who stand to benefit the most by paying through MoneyGram are the self-employed, those working seasonal jobs and those who don’t engage in traditional banking.
“We are pleased that we have been able to make the process easier for parents to pay their child support,” said Yolo County Department of Child Support Services Director Natalie Dillon. “This partnership with MoneyGram will benefit the parents who owe child support, and will translate into more payments for their children.”
