Paralegals Track Deadbeat Parents

A two-person team of paralegals tracks down deadbeat parents in Kittitas County, Washington. Lorraine Hill and Adrianne Gerlach handle 25 open cases of parents living in the county who owe back child support. When these two receive the cases from the state's Division of Child Support, it's the state's last resort to attempt to get payments before possible arrest and jail time. The two would rather have the payments made than have the parents face jail time, although that's not always possible. They liken themselves to detectives. Sometimes, the custodial parent will thank Gerlach or Hill for their tireless efforts.
