Taking A Look At South Dakota's Child Support System

November 19, 2013, 6:46 AM by Jared Ransom

Taking A Look At South Dakota's Child Support System
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It is hard to dispute the fact that South Dakota's child support system was put in place for the benefit of the child, yet there are still situations where parents are not making payments on time or even making them at all.

Within the Department of Social Services in South Dakota, there is a specific division that handles every child support case in the state.

According to the division's director, Gail Stoltenberg, about 44,600 cases are currently open and have child support payments taking place.

Out of those cases, Stoltenberg says 69 percent are paid on time on a regular basis.

She does admit that there is a large percentage of cases that do not pay, just over 30-percent, and in those circumstances, a court date and arrest warrant could be issued.

In Minnehaha County this past year, 217 arrest warrants were issued to people skipping out on a court date regarding their child support payments.

In tonight's Eye on KELOLAND, Jared Ransom takes a closer look at the child support system in South Dakota and sits down with one family who is trying to get the child support payments owed to them totaling over $10,000.
