If you have been ordered to pay by a wage withholding where support is deducted directly from your paycheck or bank account, you must still pay through the Butler County Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) or Ohio Child Support Payment Central until the support is deducted from your wages or your account. Most deductions take two to three weeks to begin after the support order is finalized.
Wage withholding order
The CSEA issues a wage withholding order to your employer. The employer then deducts the court-ordered amount from your paycheck.
You can make cash or credit card payments in-person at the agency’s payment window.
The CSEA will only accept Visa, Discover or Mastercard. You must make the payment before 1:45 P.M. or the agency will credit the payment the following day.

CSPC must process all payments sent by mail (checks or money orders).

Do not make support payments directly to the custodial parent. If you do not pay through the CSEA or CSPC, they will generally not credit those payments to your account. The CSEA deems direct payments a gift.
