Irv Maze Announces Five-month Child Support Insert Results: $341,950.96 Collected, Hundreds of Location Leads


Irv Maze, Jefferson County Attorney, announced today the five-month results of the Child Support Top 1,000 Insert which appeared in the Louisville Courier-Journal Sunday, July 31, 2005.


As of January 6, 2006, the Child Support Insert has resulted in:


  • 3237 payments of $341,950.96.
  • 521 telephone calls to the hotline number
  • 229 new court dates set
  • 324 non-custodial parental employers found
  • 331 wage assignments sent to employers
  • 951 current addresses for obligors.


“The payments and information we have received continue to exceed my expectations,” said Maze. “As we use the new information to get more obligors to court, the collection numbers will rise. That means more dependant children will be receiving the financial support they need.”


“Public response to the insert continues to provide us with the information we need to locate parents who owe child support,” said Maze.


“I encourage anyone with information on those who owe child support to call 574-0821.”


Funding for publication of the Child Support Insert was granted by the Louisville Metro Council.
