Xerox's processes 54 percent of the child support collections in the U.S. Xerox collects a transaction fee for the payments, which are typically delivered via ACH. ExpertPay handles $2 billion in child support payments a year.

According to Xerox, the ExpertPay app will be designed for employers that have to withhold child support from wages and payers. The app will also allow email notifications and messaging, transaction history and bank account changes. The ExpertPay app will be similar to Xerox's Way2GO card system, which provides child support via a debit card.
