DCFS "Most Wanted" owe $866,000 in child support
BATON ROUGE - The Department of Children and Family Services released a list of 18 parents today that owe nearly $866,000 in child support, calling them the state's "Most Wanted."
The list includes non-custodial parents who owe at least $20,000 in child support and haven't paid in at least six months.
DCFS Secretary Suzy Sonnier said these are people who have repeatedly ducked the agency's efforts to collect what their children are owed.
"In previous years, this poster's publication has elicited tips about the current locations of many of Louisiana's delinquent payors and has in turn made them pay up," she said.
At the top of this year's list is Richard C. Miller, 53, an electrician who owed more than $128,000 and was last known to be living in Lake Ozark, Mo. Sonnier said Miller has topped their list since 2009.
Louisiana's total unpaid child support to DCFS is more than $1.3 billion.
The "Most Wanted" poster will be distributed to DCFS and other government offices around the state. To view or download it, visit the DCFS Most Wanted website. You can also search for all Louisiana parents who owe child support at DCFS's Delinquent Payors database.
