This is a ridiculous law. It goes against the purpose of encouraging people to pay back child support. No driver's license = no way to drive to a job. Reverse this LAW!

My license is being suspended because I got behind in my CS payments. I am remarried with 3 children. My wife was in a bad car accident a couple of years ago and I am the only driver for her and my kids. Why should my family have to suffer because my ex (who makes over 100K a year) wants to ruin my life. Please reverse this law. I want to work and provide for all my children. Why is quality of life not important in this situation?

It's unfair for young fathers who are trying so hard to get a job to pay child support and now with this law it makes it even harder, they get discouraged and feel choked by our system. I can understand if there is a father who refuses to pay any longer and can do so, then ok.. If a dead beat dad REFUSES .. Ok then let the law stand for that individual !!! Not all men who father children ARE DEAD BEAT DADS!! They should not have to suffer because of them!

I am a sole custodial parent who doesn't receive a dime of child support and is well into over $100,000 of past due child support. I would be VERY upset if the day ever comes and he does get a job & cant because his lic is suspended. It hasn't gotten him to pay his support yet because of his lic. But keeping him or preventing him from accuring a job or keeping a job isnt of any help to this problem. I agree with "someone from Los Angeles" below. It will end up being tax payers who will be paying for the children if they keep making it so difficult. My current husband finally gotten a new job making a decent pay & is beig told by the dmv it may take up to a month to release his lic due to child support. Child support has a letter from his employer stating he needs his lic so he can be put on company insurance, has the employers address to send a wage garnishment to & still are of NO help. Lets hope he gets to keep this job. Its all in the hands of a css which probably is why they find it hard to help a willing father out, SO THEY CAN KEEP RACKING UP THE "INTREST" the state gets from his past due amount.

I recommend a tiered basis on DL suspension. If an NCP has a good history of paying child support with no late payments in the last 12 months and loses their job at no fault of their own then DL suspension should not take effect for at least 90 days. If you are a deadbeat parent and never make payments then DL should be suspended (after the first 90 days)

A ridiculous law of which is not in the best intrest of any child. Does more negative then good. The CSS really needs a lot of reworking altogether.

I need my license to get jobs and continue to work. Without a license it is very hard to find a job in my field. Without a job i can't pay child support. This is a dead end situation for fathers like myself. How is this suppose to benefit the child?

Paying child support is crucial to all the children owed it...dead beat parents have the legal responsibility to their child or children. When prevented to obtain a job based upon suspension of ones drivers licenses is playing devils advocate because it prevents the dead beat parent who is willing to work to support his or her child as best as they can...this California law is doing more damage than good based on the high unemployment rate and enforcing it by not allowing the parent to work or lose a job based on it...a new process needs to be put into place
