A court order is required to initiate payment through the Clerk's Office. You will need to contact a private attorney or the Department of Revenue, Office of Child Support Enforcement, for assistance in obtaining a court order.
The SDU is the State of Florida Disbursement Unit. This unit was established pursuant to Section 61.1824, Florida Statutes, and provisions included in the federal Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1999 (commonly known as the Welfare Reform Act). Under this system, payments must be sent to the statewide processing unit in Tallahassee, called the State of Florida Disbursement Unit (FLSDU). This unit will process the payments and then issue checks to the receiving families.
Payments received at the SDU are remitted the following business day. If a payment is made at the local clerk's office, it must be transmitted to the SDU, and therefore the payment is remitted to the recipient the second business day.

It depends on the specific language contained in the support order. Read your order carefully. If you believe that an event referred to in your order that should cause support to terminate has occurred, contact the Clerk's Office. If you believe an event not included in the order has occurred, you may need to file a request to modify the child support order. You may wish to consult an attorney.
