Renewed Partnership Should Lead to More Child Support Payments

I am extremely happy to renew a partnership with WCPO-TV that is designed to locate parents who are severely delinquent on their child support payments. This is a partnership that stretches back about 15 years and Channel 9 estimates approximately $3.4 million was recovered in child support during that time because of the broadcasts, which feature the names and pictures of delinquent parents.

We always say that we cannot do this job effectively without community support and this is a perfect example of partnering with another community entity to benefit Hamilton County’s children.

To be featured on a broadcast, the delinquent parent will have a warrant out for their arrest because of overdue money and will typically have been considered in contempt of court because they failed to show up for a court hearing.

The reports will air at 5:30 p.m. Wednesdays. Please look for them.

In this economy, it is more important than ever that children receive support to meet their basic needs, such as food, shelter and clothing. If you know the location of parent who is not paying child support, please call (513) 946-5350.
