Driver's License Suspension with Child Support Arrears

Reinstating your Suspended Driver’s License and Business Licenses

Many fathers with child support obligations fall behind on payments. No matter the reason for falling behind, if child support is late, the consequences can be extremely serious. Child support arrears can lead to:

  • A warrant for your arrest
  • Civil fines
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Garnished wages
  • Professional business license suspension

Losing a driver's license can be inconvenient but it can be more. If your livelihood and career depend on being able to drive, your income may be significantly impacted. Contact the Elena Mebtahi Law Firm for a free case analysis involving your driver's license suspension with child support arrears. Our father's rights attorney will use her considerable experience to offer you guidance and practical advice. She will also aggressively argue to have your license reinstated.
