Hello,Thank you for allowing us to assist you with this problem.
Failing to pay your required child support payments can lead to having your license suspended. If this happens, you'll be given a 150-day temporary license. During this period, you're expected to satisfactorily address your situation with the Department of Child Support Services (DCSS).
Further, You can file form FL-670 (http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/forms/fillable/fl670.pdf
), Notice of Motion for Judicial Review of License Denial. This form asks the court to consider giving you back your license. The family law facilitator can help you fill out the form, but you have to file it with the court clerk. The court will make the final decision, not the local child support agency.
No need to pay again.
I wish you well and remember judges like it when a father comes to court with a plan to attach the arrears.
