10th Annual Delinquent Child Support list publishes Sunday

August 28, 2015

Jefferson County Attorney Mike O’Connell today announced the tenth publication of the list of delinquent child support obligors will run in the Sunday, August 30 edition of The Louisville Courier-Journal. 

In the 10 years of printing this list, both in the insert and on the website, the Child Support Division has collected $13.6 million, sent wage withholding orders to 9,432 employers and found 16,357 new addresses. 

“Each year, the community has stepped up to help us track down those who are not fulfilling their obligations to their children,” said O’Connell. “Raising children is expensive and we want to make sure every child in Jefferson County is getting what is owed him or her.” 

This year’s list – of 2,466 names – is made up of those parents who owe the largest debts to their children, with each of those listed owing $10,000 or more. The largest debt owed is more than $187,000. 

Only 996 names appear in the printed insert, due to space constraints. The full list can be found online here.

“Our office works very hard to make sure child support is collected throughout Metro Louisville,” O’Connell said. “This insert is an effective tool that gets results. This past 10 years of publication is a great success for the children of our community.” 

Anyone with information that could help locate someone on the list should call 574-0821.
