Louisiana Casinos Assist In Seizing $800,000 Worth Of Child Support Funds

Louisiana gamblers may face a new form of seizure regarding their child support payments, if they owe any. Casinos in the Pelican State will run the names of any high winners (with totals of over $1,200) through a state-wide database to determine if they owe child support of any kind. The law, nicknamed “Casino Interception”, was signed in 2010 to assist spouses who are owed support. Hollywood Casino of Baton Rouge alone seized over $100,000, a record for all state-regulated casinos.

Louisiana Casino Association executive director Wade Duty stated that although the process does not benefit the industry financially, it does benefit children who are not receiving court-ordered child support. The process of searching for people who owe support has been made easier by the efforts of the Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services, who provided the database.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the average payment for child support in 2010 was $430. In total, the payments came out just over $40 billion nationally, with a little under $25 billion being collected for children under the age of 21.
