Discontinued Clerk of Court Electronic Payment Options:

Effective July 1, 2019. Oconee County will discontinue options for making web and/or interactive voice response support payments via credit/debit card and automatic withdrawal (ACH debit). The State Disbursement Unit provides new options for making walk-in and online payments. Please see for additional details. This change ONLY affects support payments. Other types of county payments (for example, property taxes) can still be paid by credit card from the county's website.

If you appeared before a judge due to failure to pay your child support and were ordered to pay a specific amount (sometimes referred to as a purge payment) to be in compliance with the judge's ruling, you may come to the payment window in the Clerks of Court office and pay cash or use your credit/debit card to pay the ordered amount.

The foreclosure list is now viewable on the South Carolina Judicial Website. Once you are there do the following:
  1. The default roster description is for Common Pleas
