I totally disagree with the system, which. Is set up for the women..it takes two to make a baby so it should the mothers responsibility as well as the father to support the child, and not just wait in the child support or any assistance from the state...make these women pull their load as well..

I think it horrible to suspend the drivers license. I have had county, state and federal workers say their hands are tied. It is like the government is still on an old horse and buggy system, frustrating for all. It is time to stop this old broken down system and help everyone, especially the most vunerable amongst us, our children!

I have been paying $227.00 a week for the past nine years. I lost my job and have not been able to pay child support, can barely pay my rent and utilities. Instead of helping me during my time of need the State of New York has now placed it's foot on my throat to further cripple me. My licence was suspended and now even further limits who will hire me and now i can't even drive to look for a job. Way to go New York. This is the way you treat someone who has been a law abiding tax paying citizen. You have now forced me to drive illegally. Try giving the fathers who have done the right thing a break for once.

Who can overturn a license suspension? I am a tattoo artist, never received a suspension letter and during a routine health inspection was fined 2500 for suspended lisence. Child support has ****ed my career and I don't know wat to do.

There should never be a law like this and it should be amended. Depending on how long of a duration and no interest should be applied for first and second time offenders. Seasons change as well as the work loads, this should also be recognised. Supply and Demand(People eat more Turkey during Thanksgiving than any other Season)

This is the most counter intuitive punitive consequence imaginable. In Florida, public transportation is woefully lacking -- this law makes no sense.

It is wrong, you are making it difficult for those who what's to pay but are not able to because you are limiting them. In every turn these fathers take things are harder not easier on them. They are never giving a chance especially those that want to.

child support should work harder for the parent to have rights to spend time with the child rather than worrying about locking someone up or taking their license from them.

It prohibits parents that need license to keep or maintain employment and to survive. Some parent have feel down on their luck and get behind. They almost can't get back on track with this license suspension.
