Illinois department collected over $1.4 billion in child support

Posted:
SPRINGFIELD - For the first time in state history, the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services says it has collected more than $1.4 billion in child support.

The department also announced in a news release that the fiscal year that ended in June was the tenth straight year that more than $1 billion was collected.

Although the department says most of the child support collected comes from income withholding, it does use other methods to collect payments, such as "freezing and seizing" bank accounts.  The IDHFS also notifies professional and occupational licensing agencies to suspend or revoke a parent's licenses until child support is paid.  The department even asks the Department of Natural Resources to deny fishing and hunting licenses until child support is paid.
