2011 Child Support Insert

Thursday September 8, 2011

Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell published the sixth annual list of delinquent child support obligors in the Sunday, August 28th Louisville Courier-Journal.

This year’s list contains 3995 names, last known addresses and the amount of child support owed as of August 3, 2011. Individuals listed owe a collective $88 million.

“Our purpose in publishing this list is to get location information on these individuals,” said County Attorney Mike O’Connell. “We need for the public to read the list, then call us at 574-0821 with location information.”

The printed insert lists 500 names and addresses. Additional names may be found at

“This is just one of the strategies our office uses to collect the support these children need, but it is one of the most successful,” said O’Connell.

Five previous inserts have resulted in the location of more than 4,000 individuals and $2.1 million in child support collection.

Additionally this year, The County Attorney's Office is honoring September as National child Support Awareness Month by presenting a series of resources to assist parents. The Louisville Urban League, Community Action, Purcell and Belcan Staffing, Jewish Family & Career Services and others are available in the Child Support office to provide services.

One week after publication, the 2011 Insert has yielded 104 updated addresses, 24 employers, and more than $10,000 in new child support payments for Metro Louisville children.
