It is the intent of the Legislature to encourage the use of all proven techniques
for the enforcement of support orders. The Legislature finds that the potential suspension of a professional, occupational,
or recreational license or a motor vehicle operator's license for failure to pay child,
spousal, and medical support is an effective technique for the enforcement of support
orders, particularly for non-wage-earning and self-employed license holders who are
not in compliance with support orders. It is the intent of the Legislature to encourage license holders to comply with their
legal obligations and to add to the tools available for the enforcement of support
orders. Therefor, the Department of Health and Human Services, county attorneys, authorized
attorneys, or courts of competent jurisdiction are authorized to initiate actions
under the License Suspension Act against individuals who are not in compliance with
FindLaw Codes may not reflect the most recent version of the law in your jurisdiction. Please verify the status of the code you are researching with the state legislature or via Westlaw before relying on it for your legal needs.
