The Division of Child Support Services (CSS) may suspend Petitioner’s licenses, including his state-issued driver’s license, for failure to pay child support.  Petitioner has not voluntarily paid child support since 2009, and his arrearage as of October 31, 2013, was $12,122.84.  Petitioner cannot claim an exemption from suspension because he has not been active in the Fatherhood Program.  He may retain his license if he makes a purge payment equivalent to 20% of the child support arrears, begins to make monthly child support payments, and makes monthly payments toward the arrears.
