Correspondence:  State agencies should send child support case correspondence to the Ministry of Justice:

Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Poland
Department of International Cooperation and Human Rights
Al. Ujazdowskie 11
P.O. Box 33
00-950 Warszawa
POLAND

Phone: 48-22-2390-870  
Fax: 48-22-628-0949
Email: alimenty@ms.gov.pl

If responding to a Polish Circuit Court (Sad Okregowy) request, correspondence should be sent directly to that court, and not to the Ministry of Justice.

Payments: State agencies should send child support payments either directly to the obligee or through the financial service company of US Money Express Co:

US Money Express Co
5395 N. Milwaukee Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60630

Toll Free: 866-234-8787
Email: info@usmoneyexpress.com
 

US Money Express Co. provides discounted rates to state agencies for the transfer of child support collections (for example, $5.00 for individual transfers up to $100.00, $7.50 for a transfer of up to $300.00). US Money Express Co. is able to accept collections by electronic funds transfer, although no state at present has chosen to use this capability. Further discounts may be available for states that choose to electronically transfer collections.

State agencies should make checks payable to US Money Express Co., referencing the beneficiary custodial parent/guardian either on the primary “pay to” line or the second “for” line.  Payment instruction information (including the first and last name of the beneficiary; the address of the beneficiary in Poland; and, if known, the beneficiary’s bank name and account number) should be included in the transmission with the paper checks or simultaneously faxed for those payments sent electronically in the CCD+ format.
