Kansas Launching Campaign to Boost Child Support Collections

Associated Press - August 13, 2015 4:48 pm

Kansas City Power & Light is appealing a September ruling by Kansas regulators reducing the percentage of annual profit the utility is allowed to return to its stockholders.

Two state agencies in Kansas are preparing to launch a new campaign aimed at increasing the collection of child support payments from unmarried or separated parents.

The Department of Labor and the Department for Children and Families are planning a joint Friday afternoon news conference to kick off the campaign.

Their announcement of the event says it will be an educational campaign but does not provide further details. The event will be at the Department for Children and Families state office in downtown Topeka.

Labor Secretary Lana Gordon and Children and Families Secretary Phyllis Gilmore are planning to participate in the event.

Child support is paid by non-custodial parents after a divorce or separation, or when parents never married and live separately.

Kansas Child Support would bring in more money if they wouldn’t contract out to out of State Corporations that are just in it for the money! When you allow corporate business to run a government program the program is going to suffer. They’re in it for the cash not to actually provide a service. Therefore, they are never going to collect support the way it should be.
