How to Pay a Divorce Settlement

    • 1). Verify the divorce settlement amount and, if the settlement requires ongoing support, the monthly payment date. Contact your lawyer if you find a discrepancy or if you have questions about the payment.

    • 2). Purchase a money order or cashier's check in the amount of the required payment. This gives you a reliable record of your payment in case questions about payments arise. Make the money order or cashier's check out to your former spouse.

    • 3). Mail the payment to your former spouse. Send it by certified mail and request a return receipt so you have a record of your spouse receiving the payment.
