Changes in Child Support Laws Mean Fewer Suspensions
Last year over 100,000 parents had their driver’s license suspended for failure to satisfy their child support obligation. Many advocates suggest that it is an inability to pay not an unwillingness and point to the downturn in Ohio’s economy. On Wednesday a new law will go into effect allowing parents who pay at least 1/2 (one half) of their child support obligation to avoid a license suspension. In addition, the law will allow cooperating parents to remove existing license suspensions from their record.
