TOPEKA – Kansas Department for Children and Families (DCF) Secretary Phyllis Gilmore announced Friday, that four different vendors have been selected to provide full-service child support activities in all 31 judicial districts in the state of Kansas.
The vendors include YoungWilliams, Lee Fisher, 18th Judicial District Court Trustee and Veritas.
“Privatizing child support services in Kansas will help ensure that more money is collected for custodial parents,” Secretary Gilmore said. “Child support can make a big difference in the financial well-being of a child who is living in poverty.”
In Kansas, DCF’s Child Support Services division collects more than $200 million each year from non-custodial parents to support children. The department projects that the State could increase these collections by approximately $52 million over the initial three-years of the contracts under a privatized system.
