Parents behind on child support can participate in Amnesty Program

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — LONDON — In Laurel County, more than 250 parents face the possibility of jail time for failure to pay ordered child support obligations.  From May 2 through May 16, the Laurel County Child Support Office will be offering amnesty from arrest or judicial action to these parents.

Laurel County Attorney J.L. Albright, Child Support Division, in partnership with the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office will work with individuals to set up a payment plan and withdraw any arrests warrants for those participating in the amnesty program.

To participate in the Amnesty Program, parents will need to appear in person at the Laurel County Child Support Office, 101 South Main St., Room 220, London, between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Parents will be expected to make a payment toward their child support and enter into a written payment plan with the Laurel County Child Support Office and the Laurel County Family Court Judge. The caseworker for the parents will have the specific amount to be paid on each case and the parents may call or come into the office prior to amnesty week to obtain that information.

All payments must be in the form of a money order, cashier’s check or cash. No personal checks will be accepted. Parents will receive copies of their bench warrant withdrawl and their payment plan.

If the parent fails to appear between the times provided to take care of this matter, immediate arrest will follow.

For any questions, please contact the Laurel County Child Support Office located in the county courthouse at 101 South Main St., Room 220, London, by calling 606-878-7740.
