You need to ask for a modification of your support order. You are entitled to a modification if your income has changed from when the original or last support order was made or if you are now supporting more children or paying child support for additional children.
If your income has changed or your circumstances and Child Support Enforcement is enforcing the order you simply need to call them and ask for a modification packet to be mailed to you. Fill out the forms and send it back. It normally takes 30-60 days for them to review the case and order a adjustment if needed.
As far as the drivers license this is a difficult situation, they will suspend the license if you are not paying. Keep in mind often they will work with you if you are trying. Even if you send only a small payment each month this shows good faith and may prevent your licenses from being suspended.
