    Dad ‘Shocked’ and ‘Embarrassed’ by Child Support Postcard

    "Are postcard reminders to pay child support an invasion of privacy, as one father charges — or a reasonable way to nudge parents to pay? (Photo: KWCH)A father in Kansas is up in arms — not because the state makes him pay child support, but because of the postcards they send him reminding him of his obligation every month.
    The postcards are an “invasion of privacy,” the dad, identified only as Scott, told Kansas TV station KWCH. Because they aren’t sealed like a letter, anyone who sees them can read them. “I was utterly shocked,” he said. “Not only shocked, but embarrassed that they would be sending these cards out as public knowledge. I live in a very small town, and it’s like, why don’t you just put a sign in my front yard saying, ‘Hey, here’s a noncustodial parent, and he’s paying child support.’
    The actual card sent by the state of Kansas to all parents mandated to pay child support, even if they always fulfill their obligations. (Photo: KWCH)

    But a state official says the postcards, which have been going out to noncustodial parents who were mandated by courts to pay child support, pose no privacy threat.
    Oh, that's just a stupid thing to say. Postcards are always a lack of privacy and everybody knows it. What is glaringly missing from that article is any awareness of mailing letters in sealed envelopes as the method. Does the state official receive his bank balances on a post card?

    They use post cards because it's cheaper than mailing letters. I don't want any of my personal business on a post card. The Dad has a legitimate point. So stupid that the article only makes the comparison between sending postcards or sending nothing.

    Surely that violates your equivalent of the Data Protection Act?

    That's something that is taken pretty seriously on this side of the pond.

    The bureaucratic mentality is the only constant in the universe.

    Anything to save a penny and not spend a massive amount of money but lavish it on the constituents.

    And just another imbecilic reason to not have kids.

    what is it about children that makes people think they get to butt into your business any chance they can?

    In my experience bureaucracy is all about wasting money.

    If it wasn't, then a company ten times the size would have ten times the profits. You'll find it is usually less than that.

    I live in KS. It is a strange place politically. What they should do is focus on the individuals who are delinquent. Sending a postcard to everyone is a waste of resources and an invasion of privacy. I've had enough interactions with the Department of Revenue to know that the State does have the computing power implement this policy. Just try to report incorrect estimated tax deposits on a tax return and see how fast they send a sealed letter that was never touched by an employee.

    “These postcards are fairly discrete, but they do make clear that the individual does owe child support, not for the purpose of shaming anyone” but for the purpose of reminding them, Theresa Freed, communication director for the Kansas Department of Children and Families, told KWCH.

    'Not' for the purpose of shaming anyone, Theresa? Right..
