Falling behind on child support could cost you your license

On Behalf of | Aug 14, 2015 | Drivers License Suspension And Revocation

Throughout Florida and, indeed, the United States as a whole, many individuals rely heavily on their driver’s license. However, if you commit a driving offense, there is a chance that your license could be revoked or suspended. For some families, this can be devastating as there may only be one person in the household who is legally allowed to drive. As such, the loss of that one license limits the entire family’s activities and freedom.

There are many ways in which you could end up without a license. For example, if you are stopped on suspicion of drunk driving but refuse to submit to tests to determine your blood alcohol concentration, implied consent laws allow your license to be suspended as a result. Other matters that can lead to the loss of your license include altering the plates on your vehicle and disobeying the rules of the road by driving carelessly or while impaired by drugs or alcohol.

Even road rage can get you into trouble as it is possible to lose your license for assaulting another road user, as this article on driving offenses details. On top of all this, there are reasons unrelated to your driving habits that can be cited for the revocation of your license. A common one is child support delinquency. If you fall behind on your payments, you could lose the right to drive.

Therefore, if you should ever have your license suspended or revoked, you may wish to seek to have your driving privileges reinstated by having your case heard in a court of law. An attorney could represent your interests in court in an effort to help you recover your license.
