Oldham County Attorney  recognized for efforts

The Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) has announced the state’s 20 top-performing child support collection partners and has recognized one that has made significant improvement during the past year.

Oldham County and County Attorney John Carter were recognized as a top performing county with 1,000 to 2,000 cases a year.  

The winners were announced this month at a conference in Bowling Green hosted by the CHFS Child Support Enforcement program (CSE).

 The CSE administers child support enforcement jointly with local contracting officials for all 120 counties.

 Contracting officials are ranked based on their paternity establishments, the establishment of child support orders, child support collections and past-due collections.

 Rankings for the 2012-13 fiscal year were made based on number of active cases.
