The State of California has partnered with PayNearMe to enable Non-Custodial Parents the ability to pay child support with cash at participating 7-Eleven stores and CVS stores. Find a location near you.

There is a $1.99 convenience fee, but for many the accessibility saves money on time and travel.

How to make a payment using PayNearMe:

  • Step 1: Non-Custodial Parents will need to obtain a barcode/paycode. You will need your child support participant identification number and your full name to create a barcode for yourself. If you do not have a barcode/paycode, create one here:
  • Step 2: Print or send your barcode/paycode to your mobile device.
  • Step 3: Visit a participating 7-Eleven and CVS stores​ and present the barcode/paycode to the cashier.
  • Step 4: Make a cash payment and keep the receipt for your records. The payment will be credited to your account three to four business days from the date the payment is made.
