Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX X'X a family law litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.

Support Kids is a private company that specializes in collecting child support. You certainly don't have to work with them and deal with them - - if you tell them to stop contacting you, they should have to comply under federal collection laws.

If your wages were being garnished and paid over to the Oklahoma Child Support Registry and it stopped, then you should contact the Oklahoma Dept. of Human Services and find out what's going on as you don't want to fall behind in your payments or be charged with contempt for failing to pay.

Does Support Kids have the authorty to have my drivers license or passport revoked?


Expert:  Roger replied 1 year ago.
No, it's not a government agency and has no such authority. It can hire an attorney and get a court order for something like this if it represents your ex, but that's no different than any attorney could do.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you very much for time and affort, have been harassed for A couple of months and have been worried
Expert:  Roger replied 1 year ago.
No problem.

You certainly need to get the issue of your support being made attended to - but, this private agency doesn't have the power of the government.
