The Michigan Attorney General’s Child Support Division has collected more than $11.6 million in 2005. Since creating the Division in 2003, it has collected $22,046,379.07 for 2,132 Michigan children and has arrested more than 1,600 non-paying, non-custodial parents across Michigan and the nation. When the division was created in 2003 by Attorney General Mike Cox, it was first of its kind in the nation. Collecting child support is a cooperative effort, with the Attorney General's office working together with the Office of Child Support in the Department of Human Services. That Office has also created cooperative prosecution agreements with most of the prosecuting attorneys in Michigan. Source: prnewswire.
