How To Get Your License Back After Child Support Suspension?
My Boyfriend got his license suspended for not making child support payments on time (it is all back due money, the child is now an adult)
He is soon to be released from jail for non-payment of child support, the courts & him worked out a payment plan that we can do, $100 month, until he dies...as he will never be able to pay it all off ($88,000 @ 9% interest)
I'd like to know is there anyway he can get his license back after making a few on time payments or does he have to pay the whole $88,000 to get it back (in that case he's S.O.L.) or what can we do to get his license back?
We live in Upstate New York.
Oh just so you all don't think he's a dead beat he still sees his Son, who is now an adult & the reason he wasn't able to pay was due to being jobless & homeless, now he's okay & just trying to play catch up. So all in all he's a good Father, just a mighty broke one.

Why are there arrears? If there is a legitimate reason, such as unemployment, the obligor can still file for a reduction in them. Most Child Support obligors do not know there is free help from the state, by federal law, to obtain a modification. At the minimum, a motion should be filed to have any interest penalties set aside, which can double or triple the amount owed. Of the total media “reported” amount of child support owed, 83% if interest penalties and not unpaid child support. These links will teach what needs to be known about child support.
My father works with fathers on these issues. You should consider joining these groups to learn more about it.
