Allowing the State to remove a persons Driver's License for past due support is unconstitutional. How can a promissory note have value, but the efforts of an individual not abusing the welfare system do not?

My driver's license should only mean that I am capable of driving. As a bonus, it could be used to demonstrate age.

This is the most inept and corrupt thing you can do to enforce a child support order...It is counter productive to take away the very thing that can keep someone gainfully employed!! There are people who owe thousands in back support while waiting for a disability hearing...There are people who owe thousands for getting hurt on the job or are laid of of work due to economic reasons...There are already harsher penalties for being delinquent..Like INCARCERATION!!! there are plenty of ways the government can collect...But to take someones livelihood away creates a slippery slope that most cannot recover from! I beg you to look at another alternative...You have the power...Do something about it please!!!! This has gone on long enough!

I have a CDL. Now I'm work an employment agency job that doesn't even pay me half of what I was making. My checks aren't even enough to pay the full amount I'm ordered to pay per week. I end up with $100 a week after working 40hrs. How's that helping anyone? I can't afford my car note, insurance, or rent. Now I'm living back at home with my parents. It's insane.

My boyfriend's daughter was hidden from him for 9 years. His ex wife denied him court ordered visitation. My boyfriend lost his job when the tech company employing him failed. While looking for a new job he fell behind on payments. His license was suspended, as a result his employment opportunities were severely curtailed. He couldn't keep up with support payments nor could he afford a lawyer to sue for access to his daughter. How was any of this in the best interest of his daughter? It WASN'T. Wage garnishing I understand, tax liens I understand. Suspending a license is just punitive, helps no one, and creates a downward spiral it's nearly impossible to pull out of.
