Dad's VISA

Court ordered child support payments, distributed via a VISA debit card, are now available throughout Colorado. The “Family Support Registry VISA” program began as a pilot in 2001, and is now used by more than 1,200 recipients. It is unique within the USA. Under the “FSR VISA” debit card program, the state collects court ordered payments, as it has in the past, and electronically loads the payment on to the VISA card. The card is available to the recipient free of charge. However, there is a $1.50 fee for ATM cash withdrawals. U.S. Bank implemented a similar pilot in the State of Washington and is working with other government agencies to initiate stored value payment cards in more states and in various capacities. U.S. Bancorp has 4,604 ATMs in the USA.
