California Child Support suspension of drivers license law

Messages Sent So Far
The suspension of driver's license law the California Child Support Division enforces, is causing hardship for the non-cunstodial parent's. I understand this laws was enforced for that of deadbeat "father's". But this law is causing more loss of jobs, than it is inspiering that of deadbeat dad's. this law needs to be reconsiderd, or even revoked from the bill of the United State Senate.

I'm getting my license suspended and I'm paying my child support now I'm facing loss of jobs because they don't want to release my license. I've been paying my child support good. When I call the child support office they tell me that I have to talk to myou case worker and and is up to him if he wants to release it. What!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's telling me they decide if we can drive or not no matter if you pay or not.

I have been homeless, unable to pay back child support because my California Drivers license was suspended. I am a painter by trade, had my car impounded, that I was living in for shelter without a license. Since, I have been offered jobs, but am unable to drive to various locations with equipment for painting. Using public transportation is impossible. I can't pay anything if I cannot drive from job to job. I could even get by with some type of restricted drivers license to allow me get to and from work. Currently I am staying with my parents, a roof over my head, no car, no license and I have had job offers. Please help some of us that want to work and cannot without a license. If we owe, we owe, but how can we make things right if we can't make a living? It may be easiest for some that can take public transportation, but not when you need to carry equipment from city to city. No way to live at all.

Yes and custodial parents are fraudulently using child support for there own interest turning working fathers like me homeless she denied filing at first because she knew I was working two jobs to keep the rent and bills paid and watching after my daughter but house was in her name she kicked me out hitch hiked and walked for weeks to finally get back to Altadena from the high desert and been unable to get on my feet since

My boyfriend can't afford to pay his child support because the jobs that pay well require a drivers license to be hired. So suspending a license due to non payment because he can get a job that pays more re than minimum wage doesn't make sense. He wants to pay he wants to suee his kids but their mother won't allow him to. And when they were taking child support out of his check he was left with a $200 dollar check how can anyone one live off that. It wasn't enough to pay for his rent . So he had to quit . Makes no sense.

I am thoroughly disgusted at the fact that I have watched my brother loose his automotive business license because of a hiccup in payments to the child support agencies. This error, cost him his business, the means of how he was trying to support his family and pay his child support was taken from him. Is the idea here to disable these Men / Women to the point of going to jail as an only option? California state does nothing to the "Dead Beat Dads" who are living off of our prison system, (what do they pay?). The Dad's that are trying to keep a job, start a business, amount to something respectable after a family break up, are cut off at the knees for trying to be legit. The state actually hinders their chances of ever being able to rise above or provide. The interest charges of Child Support does not apply in every state of the U.S. I feel that the Interest is not necessary. I plead that the interest of arrears be stopped, wiped clean, zeroed. It is unfair to our American Men and Women who are trying to support their families. They cannot get a loan, buy a house, take a cruise with family, because of the "Interest" on arrears. The child support fees have been paid for, the interest that rolls over and accrues each year or month is the insanity that never gives them an option to catch up or pay off. Stop killing the spirit of our American people. ERASE all interest on child support fees. Let these people have a goal they can achieve one day. Why are they not allowed to take a vacation with a family they have paid fees for plus interest all these years? Please, help me to do something about this!! This interest money does not go to funding college for these children, it does not go to the custodial parent for child raising, the interest is a money racketeering system that the state collects on. No bank account pays 10 percent interest, so no one trying to earn a living and paying child support should be subjected to these interest fees. I am tired of seeing Men who are good and not "Dead Beats" that are losing their freedom to keep a regular bank account , drivers license, business license, savings account, or just a family vacation because our system treats them WORSE than a terrorist.

The law absolutely promotes violation of the penal code and causes unjust and unproductive arrests. It makes men that would otherwise never be criminals, criminals and fills the jails with nonviolent and unnecessary inmates. The judicial system has become nothing more than a major business for "private jail/prisons" to operate and make a massive profit on the unconstitutional incarserstion of innocent men. This law will do nothing more than cultivate criminals that should and would never be criminal in any other respect.

my job is my own business and i must have a driver license to do it and if i loose my license i loose my livelihood, i feel that the department of child support is violating my first amendment right of life and liberty by doing such. i do what i can to make my payments, but the court is so far behind that by the time i get to see a judge to adjust my required payment i get so far behind that they try and take my license. i feel that not only is this wrong but also that because my annual salary changes every year i have to have my case revisited and it costs me to have to pay more than i should because the court never back dates anything.
