Suspension Actions

Actions taken for late or non-payment of child support

If a parent does not make child support payments as ordered, the first action the Child Support Program can take is mailing a late payment notice to the parent who owes support. The Program may also send the parent an appointment notice to visit a local office to speak with a Program representative about entering into a written agreement.

If the parent who owes support does not cooperate with the Program in a timely manner, the Child Support Program may begin one of the following suspension actions:

Driver license and registration suspension Business, professional or recreational license suspension Passport denial

Parents Who Owe Support
What you can do

The Child Support Program aims to work with parents who owe support, even if they are past-due on their payments.

  1. If you receive a late payment notice, pay the past-due amount (or as much of it as you can) as soon as possible or contact the Child Support Program for help.
  2. If you receive an appointment notice to visit a Program office, visit an office near you to discuss a written agreement.
  3. If you receive a notice that your driver license or registration may be suspended, you have options within the first 20 days.
  4. If you receive a notice that your business, professional or recreational license may be suspended, you have options within the first 30 days.
  5. If you believe you received a notice in error, contact the Child Support Program as soon as possible.
