OBLIGOR (the person who is required to pay support)
Whenever possible, payments must be made through a withholding notice from the income of the Obligor and forwarded to the Ohio Child Support Payment Central (CSPC) by the employer. When necessary a withholding notice will be sent to Unemployment, Workers’ Compensation, or to a financial institution. Self-employed Obligors must make alternate arrangements.
Obligated amounts are always expressed by the CSEA in monthly increments and commence with the date expressed by the Court Order, the hearing date or filing date of the order. On new orders, before wage withholding amounts begin to be received by CSPC, the Obligor needs to make the payment on his/her own.
Cash payments may be made in person at the Noble County Child Support Enforcement Agency located at 46049 Marietta Road, Caldwell, Ohio.
