OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma Department of Human Services will begin collecting a fee from many people who receive child support payments in the state.

Beginning Oct. 1, DHS’ Division of Child Support Services will charge a 3 percent fee up to a maximum of $10 per month on child support payments it collects.

DHS said Friday that the fee is expected to generate about $1 million this year and is needed to help balance the agency’s fiscal year 2018 budget.
