Clerk of Court Electronic Payment Options

Effective September 16, 2018 at 5:00pm, York County will discontinue options for making web support payments via credit/debit card.  The State Disbursement Unit provides new options for making walk-in and onlinepayments.  Please see  for additional details.  This change ONLY affects support payments.  Other types of county payments (for example, property taxes) can still be paid by credit card through the county’s website.

If you appeared before a judge due to failure to pay your child support and were ordered to pay a specific amount (sometimes referred to as a purge payment) to be in compliance with the Judge’s ruling, you may come to the payment window in the Clerk of Court’s office and pay cash or use your credit/debit card to pay the ordered amount.
