Second Annual List of Delinquent Child Support Obligors to be published this Sunday,
Irv Maze, Jefferson County Attorney, announced today that the second annual list of Delinquent Child Support Obligors will appear in the Courier-Journal this Sunday,
This year’s list contains the names of 936 individuals who, as of July 17th, 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, last known address and child support owed. 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, July 31, 2005, and has produced:
- 8,567 payments of $943,966.45
- 629 calls to the hotline number
- 341 new court dates set
- 485 non-custodial parent employers found
- 444 wage assignments sent to those employers
- 1,145 current addresses for obligors
“The results are phenomenal,” said Maze. “In most cases, this is the first monetary support these children have seen from their non-custodial parent, despite numerous past attempts to collect.”
“My office continues to receive information and contacts which are resulting in payments to the children. I am very grateful for the public response to our efforts.”
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.
