    How do I pay my child support?
    Visit the Office of the Attorney General website for information on how to make child support payments.  You can also contact the Tarrant County Child Support Office.
    How do I pay my court costs? Contact the Tarrant County District Clerk's Office at 817-884-1265.
    How do I pay my court-appointed attorney fees? Contact your assigned counselor to discuss how to pay your attorney fees.
    What if my address or employer changes?
    Report the changes to your assigned counselor immediately.  You also need to call the Office of the Attorney General at 800-252-8014 and report the changes to that office.
    Do I have to report if I am paying my child support?
    Yes.  Reporting is a term and condition of your probation.  If you fail to report, it is a violation of your probation.
    I am doing what the court order says, but the other party is not.  Can you make them comply with the court order?
    We do not supervise the other party.  The probation order only gives us the authority to supervise the person who is on probation.
