The Edmonson County Child Support Office handled 136 cases during the August 21, 2015 Motion Hour. Of all the cases, 32 bench warrants were issued totaling $178,968.72 in bonds. “The office is working closely with the Edmonson County Sheriff’s Department in efforts to serve bench warrants,” said J.B. Hines, Edmonson Count Attorney.
The Edmonson County Child Support Office has a zero tolerance on failure to pay support and to assertively pursue non-payment. “Because children rely on support from their parents for necessities such as food, clothing, shelter, and medical care, we have implemented a zero tolerance policy,” said Hines. “I appreciate the work by the members of our office as child support establishment, collection and enforcement is of great importance to some of our most vulnerable citizens, our children.”
As a note, the Child Support Office will conduct the motion hour docket on Friday, September 18, 2015, which is Fair Day. Failure to be in court, if required, will result in a bench warrant. “This office takes pride in the community and wants to be involved and supportive of all community events, but we have a duty to the children of this community as well,” said Hines.
