Clerk of the District Court - Child Support

State Disbursement Unit:

Many court ordered payments for child support are now made to the State Disbursement Unit in Cheyenne.  Effective in May 1995, a centralized payment processing system was required by federal and state law.  However, the State of Wyoming received an exemption from the Department of Health and Human Services that still allows the Clerk of District Court’s office to receive and distribute child support payments.

The following types of cases can be processed by the State Disbursement Unit:

  1. All cases enforced by the Wyoming Child Support Enforcement Program
  2. All cases in which there is an income withholding order and the initial support order was issued on or after January 1, 1994.


The State Disbursement Unit address is:
2300 Capitol Ave.
55th Floor, Suite A
Cheyenne, WY  82002
Phone:  1-888-570-9914

Clerk of the District Court - Adoption

Adoption proceedings are confidential and upon adoption, all the records are sealed.  Wyoming law allows for the appointment of a confidential intermediary who has special training if, after the adoption records are sealed, an adult adoptee or an adoptee’s adoptive or biological parents request access to the court records to locate biological relatives or information regarding the biological parents’ medical or family history.  The contents of the adoption record may not be revealed to anyone other than the confidential intermediary and the information therein regarding identities may only be released by the confidential intermediary with permission from all parties with an interest in protecting their own identities.
