DRIVER LICENSE SUSPENSIONS & CHILD SUPPORT ARREARS

 

The Law Office of Lee Meadows has over 38 years experience assisting people needing guidance about Driver License Suspension in Tallahassee.

Fighting License Suspension For Failing To Pay Child Support

CLEARING A DRIVER LICENSE SUSPENSION BASED ON A FAILURE TO PAY CHILD SUPPORT

 

 You can file a Motion to contest a driver license suspension and request that your driver license not be suspended or, that the suspension action be stopped. Generally, the Court will not suspend your driver’s license without giving you the ability to pay a purge amount to stop the suspension.

Ideally, it is best to contest the suspension before it takes place, however, Florida law gives you 20 days to file a motion contesting a suspension action for child support non-payment and if you fail to exercise this right to contest the action, then your license will be suspended without further notice.

The DOR has no authority to change what you owe in child support each month or forgive arrears; it can only agree that you make the payment ordered and catch up on arrears owed. This means that if you want to change how much child support you pay each month or have arrears forgiven you must file a petition with the court and go before a judge.

You can also go to the Clerk of Court and pay your arrears in full to have your driver’s license reinstated. If you choose to go the Clerk of Court you need to tell the DOR that you have brought your child support current and will begin making future payments as ordered. Once the DOR agrees to reinstate your driver’s license you will owe a fee to the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to get your license back.
