Child Support Insert to Appear Oct 28
Wednesday October 24, 2007
Irv Maze, Jefferson County Attorney, announced today that the third annual list of Delinquent Child Support Obligors will appear in the Courier-Journal this Sunday, October 28th.
This year’s list contains the names of 670 individuals who, as of September 25th, have not made a child support payment for 6 months or longer and who have not responded to numerous attempted contacts by the County Attorney’s Child Support office. The insert will list the obligor’s name and last known address. Readers with information on the current location of the obligors are asked to call the Child Support Hotline at
574-0821. All information is confidential.
Last year’s insert appeared in the Louisville Courier-Journal Sunday, August 13, 2006. The first two year of the project has produced location information on more than 600 individuals and more than $1.5 million in child support collections.
“The results continue to be overwhelmingly positive,” said Maze. “We are asking for location information on the listed individuals, and the public response to these lists has been phenomenal. My office continues to receive information and contacts which are resulting in payments to the children.”
Funding for publication of the Child Support Insert was granted by the Louisville Metro Council through the sponsorship of 18th District Councilwoman Julie Raque Adams.
Maze introduced a new Child Support Auto-dial Program to encourage new child support clients who have fallen behind in payments to contact the Child Support office. The office estimates the auto dialer will deliver 30 messages a day to clients with new pay orders who have fallen 45 days or more behind in their payments.
“Our goal is to encourage clients to correct a minor arrearage before it becomes overwhelming,” said Maze.
