Russell County Attorney Kevin Shearer was recently recognized by the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services for being one of the state’s 20 most successful child support collection partners from the past year.
Russell County was in the top performing counties with 1,000 to 2,000 cases.
The Frankfort ceremony was hosted by the CHFS Child Support Enforcement program, which is part of the CHFS Department for Income Support. CSE administers child support throughout the Kentucky and contracts with local officials to manage responsibilities jointly.
Rankings are based on paternity establishment, child support order establishment, current child support collections and past-due collections. Commissioner Hubbard expressed appreciation for all who were recognized at the awards ceremony.
