Ohio Aiming To Raise Child Support Collection

A statewide effort to collect more child support from parents is seeing mixed results from county to county in Ohio.

Child-support experts tell The Columbus Dispatch that the main reason is funding.

They say the number of cases each child-support caseworker deals with varies by county because of funding from each county.

Around the state, Geauga and Delaware counties each collected over 80 percent of the child-support money owed in the last fiscal year.

The statewide average was 66 percent.
