Quality Family Law Representation “Because It Matters”

Delinquent child support list released by county

Every year in Jefferson County, Kentucky, a list of parents who are delinquent on their child support payments is released. According to the list released in 2019, these so-called deadbeat parents owe about $96 million in back payments to the primary caregiver of their child. According to the Jefferson County Attorney, the purpose of the list is to help track down the more than 4,000 people on it so that they can be held accountable.

The person who owes the most child support on the list is a father who is delinquent for $572,000. The mother who owes the most is responsible for $72,000. Women make up 12 percent of the list. More than 55,000 open cases related to child support are open for Jefferson County, but the department that handles them is only staffed by 154 employees and 15 attorneys. In 2018, they were able to collect $61 million.

The people on Jefferson County's delinquent child support list have not made a payment for six months or more. To qualify for the list, the person must not be incarcerated and the custodial parent and child must live within Jefferson County. The county wants anyone that has any information about anyone on the list to contact them by phone. People with tips can also go online or visit the office in person.

Parents involved in a dispute related to child support might benefit from working with an experienced family law attorney. Parents who are delinquent due to financial troubles may be able to reduce their obligations by going to family court and asking for a modification in the original agreement. An attorney's advice might also be valuable during divorce proceedings.
