Michigan is making child support payments a 'convenience' for parents. Today, the state Department of Health and Human Services announced that soon, mothers or fathers can make payments at more than 500 7-11 and Family Dollar locations.

The state has teamed up with electronic payment provider PayNearMe.

Those who owe child support can use cash at select retail locations across the state.

They must first register online, and each payment made at the store comes with a $1.99 service fee.

“Michigan is committed to offering child support customers a variety of convenient options to make their payments. We are continually adding innovative services that respond to customer preferences and needs,” said Erin Frisch, director of the Office of Child Support within MDHHS said in a prepared release. “If we make this process more convenient, children will receive the support that they need and deserve more quickly.”
