As of October 1, 1999, federal and state laws require all child support payments to be sent to a centralized collection and distribution unit, not to the Clerks of Court.
Important! The Buncombe County Clerk's Office CANNOT accept your payment and any payments received by mail will be returned to you. This will result in a delay in child support being sent to the children, and may also result in you or your company being brought before the Court to explain your non-compliance with the law.
All payments must be made payable to North Carolina Child Support Centralized Collections. The addresses for the centralized collection and disbursement unit for North Carolina are listed below.
Also, please note that the Buncombe County Clerk's Office CANNOT inform you of child support court dates. These calendars are maintained by the Buncombe County Child Support Enforcement Agency. To obtain this information please contact their office by calling (828)-250-6340.
