How do I pay or receive child support? - Parents can agree to direct payments by check.  I, nor any lawyer would ever recommend payments by cash, but if that's the only way, then be sure to get a receipt every time.  The receiving parent has an absolute right to request a withholding order where the paying parent is directed to deliver the child support amount to the family payment center in Jefferson City, Missouri.  The payment center then sends a check to the receiving parent, skimming off a fee of course.  Currently $3 per payment.
