Ohio: "Throughout Life, Support Matters"

The Meigs County Child Support Enforcement Agency reports that the agency collected $3.2 million in child support in 2009. However, about $5 million of outstanding child support payments still needs to be collected. Agency staff members believe that they will meet their collection goals for 2010 as well.

According to the Meigs County CSEA, collection of child support is a collaborative effort. The agency works with local law enforcement, the Meigs County Prosecuting Attorney's Office, and the juvenile and domestic divisions of the Meigs County Common Pleas Court.

The CSEA only refers the worst cases of non-payment for criminal prosecution. Legal action is used as a last resort after all other strategies have been exhausted. Every month the Meigs County Prosecuting Attorney brings child support cases before Meigs County Grand Jury. As a result of these efforts, many successful outcomes and child support collections are made. In the past 20 months, the Prosecuting Attorney has worked on 150 child support cases.

The CSEA staff awarded the Prosecuting Attorney and Assistant Prosecuting Attorney with plaques this week to honor their work in child support collection.

According to the ODIFS Office of Child Support, the state of Ohio collects about $1.9 billion in child support each year, making it third in the nation for child support collection.
