Will I get a license suspension for not paying child support?

When the court orders you to pay child support in Florida, it becomes a legal obligation. You do not have a choice about whether or not to pay it. If you fail to pay your support as ordered by the court, you could face penalties. These penalties do include the suspension of your license. However, according to the Florida Department of Revenue, you do get plenty of chances to correct the situation before your driver's license suspension.

When you are late on a child support payment, you will receive a notice in the mail. The notice gives you the chance to make the missed payment or contact the child support office to make arrangements for payment. You may also get an appointment time when you have to go for an interview at the child support office. You should go to the interview even if you cannot pay right now.

The notices and interview are your chances to avoid suspension and work with child support to figure out a way to get your payments current. However, if you do not respond, the next notice is in regards to your license suspension. You have 20 days from that notice to take action. You can contact child support or make the payment.

If you still do nothing, then you will have your license suspended. You may have to pay any owed child support in addition to paying fines and fees to get your driving privileges reinstated. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
