4) My Driver's License was suspended. What do I do now?

Driver's license privileges and motor vehicle registrations may be suspended for failure to pay child support timely or comply with a subpoena or similar order to appear relating to paternity or support proceedings. If you have received a Notice of Intent to Suspend and would like to resolve this matter please review the information on the Notice for available options.
