Veteran Cook County Prosecutor to Chair Statewide Child Support Advisory Committee

The Illinois Department of Healthcare & Family Services recently named Zeophus (Zee) Williams to chair the 2011 Illinois Child Support Advisory Committee.

Williams, of Tinley Park, joined the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office in 1987, and is currently Chief of the office’s Child Support Enforcement Division, which represents custodial parents in Cook County seeking delinquent child support payments from the non-custodial parent.

The Illinois Child Support Advisory Committee was created to review child support policies and is a multi-disciplinary group with representation from the Illinois Legislature, State’s Attorneys, Attorney General, Clerk of the Courts, and community based groups.

Williams, who will serve as Chairwoman for one year, has been a member of the Illinois Child Support Advisory committee since 2009. She was appointed to chair the committee by Julie Hamos, Director of the Illinois Department of Healthcare & Family Services in January.

Williams will officially begin her term on March 14, 2011.
