When J.B. Hines took office as the new Edmonson County Attorney on January 5, 2015, the Edmonson County Child Support Office was ranked 91 out of 120 ( 1 being the best and 120 being the worst). At the end of the third quarter, the Edmonson County Child Support Office is ranked 50 out of 120. “The news of our improved ranking is evidence of the hard work of everyone in the office and the dedication to the children our community,” said Hines.
County child support offices are periodically ranked based on performance. Four areas are considered in determining the ranking: the number of open cases in which support orders have been established; the establishment of paternity; the number of open cases in which current support is being paid; and the number of cases in which average payments are being paid.
“We will continue to strive to improve,” said Hines.
