Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell released his annual publication of delinquent child support obligors on Monday, June 10.
“Louisville, we need your help to find these individuals who are not meeting their obligation to their kids,” O’Connell said. “Please call, visit or email my office if you know the address or the employer of someone on this year’s delinquent child support list.”
This year’s list of 4,272 names can be found online at https://louisvilleky.gov/government/county-attorney/2019-delinquent-child-support-list. A shorter list of 638 names appeared in a printed insert in the June 9 edition of The Courier Journal. This year’s list shows more than $96 million in total arrearages owed.
“These amounts often build up over years and my staff works tirelessly to connect kids with the child support dollars that are rightfully theirs,” O’Connell said. “The information you share with us could be vital to a child in need.”
Child support collection offers a strong return on investment of public dollars. For every $1 spent nationally, federal child support programs collect $5.33. That figure rises to $6.32 for every $1 spent in Kentucky.
Anyone with information that could help locate someone on the list should call the Jefferson County Attorney’s child support tip line at (502) 574-0821, go online to www.louisvilleky.gov/countyattorney or visit the office’s Child Support Division at 315 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd.
