Lake County Commissioners Declare August Child Support Awareness Month

PAINESVILLE, Ohio, August 10, 2022– August is Child Support Awareness Month in the State of Ohio. Child Support Awareness Month is an important opportunity to recognize that support from both parents is essential to meeting a child’s physical, social, and emotional needs and lays the groundwork for their future success.

“Issuing this proclamation is a way to raise awareness and support the children in Lake County,” said Commissioner John Hamercheck. “Children deserve support from both parents to ensure a successful future.”

The Lake County Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) located at Lake County Job and Family Services is responsible for the collection and enforcement of administrative and court ordered support payments. Lake County CSEA can also conduct free genetic testing for parents who need paternity established for their child or provide them with an Acknowledgment of Paternity Form to complete. Please click here to read the entire release.
