Child Support Collections
The payment of child support for the care of children is a very important process that must be handled as a top priority. In many cases custodial parents cannot afford attorneys and must resort to other methods. We will not allow those that are responsible for the payment of child support to escape their obligations. The District Attorneys Office, pledges to make child support collection a top priority. The Chief IV-D Assistant District Attorney assists in getting the non-custodial parent on track with missed payments. Jenny Donaghey Beckham is the IV-D Assistant District Attorney who assists in establishing new orders of child support. The in-office staff consists of a IV-D Administrator, Patricia Batiste, who prepares cases for court and judgments after court; an Intake Coordinator, Mallory Bordelon, who assists with out of state cases, creates cases and works intake caseloads; and an Intake Caseworker who creates cases and works intake caseloads. Our team is determined to work cases to the best of our abilities with the best interest of the child in mind.
