The payment of child support for the care of children is a very important
process that must be placed as a top priority. In many cases mothers cannot
afford attorneys and must resort to other measures. We will not allow those
that are responsible for the payment of child support to escape this responsibility.
The District Attorney's office strives to make child support collection a top
priority. This is done by having a full time coordinator working for the collection
of child support.
Whom to Contact
In the West Feliciana Office the child support coordinator/intake
officer is Rhonda Torrence (225) 635-4612. In the East Feliciana
office, Deborah Bennett, coordinates the child support collections as well
as intake, (225) 683-8563.
When it is necessary to bring the non-custodial parent to court,
Stewart Hughes is the Assistant District Attorney in East Feliciana and West Feliciana Parish
presiding before the Judge on behalf of the state.
