It's something that caught one Kansan by surprise.
"I was utterly shocked. Not only shocked, but embarrassed that they would be sending these cards out as public knowledge," said Walter Scott, who lives in northeast Kansas and has a 17-year-old daughter from a previous marriage he helps support.
Scott said he couldn't believe that information he deems private would be sent in the form of a postcard.
"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 non-custodial parent and he's paying child support," he said. "I don't get month statements, but I get this card in the mail."
Child Support Services is under the Department of Children and Families. Theresa Freed, the communication director for DCF said there should not be an expectation of privacy in the case of child support.
"I will never complain about support because I know that is a valid need," said Scott, who still works to be an active parent in his daughter's life. "I created those children and I do want to be an active partner in their life. I know the amount that is due every month, it's paid every month."
Scott said he doesn't understand why the information is put on a postcard rather than a sealed statement where the information would remain private.
"If they say this is acceptable then what's next? How far will they push that privacy or that invasion, what's next?" he said.
So, this man who is paying child and is being embarrassed for......paying child support.
