The District Clerk's Office processes all withholding orders in Hays County.


Beginning November 1, 2003, all new orders were directed to be paid through the State Disbursement Unit (SDU). Since that time many of the orders entered after January 1, 1994 have been re-directed through the SDU. You should have received a Notice of Place of Payment from the Attorney General's Office if your child support payments were re-directed. All orders entered prior to January, 1994 are still processed through the District Clerk's Office.

Copies of the orders and payment records are available in the District Clerk's Office for a fee of $.50 per page. Contact the District Clerk at 512-393-7660 or e-mail request to distclerk@co.hays.tx.us

The Attorney General's Office handles enforcement for the collection of past due support.

The SDU is responsible for processing all payments and the timely disbursement of those payments to the custodial parent.
