Drivers License Restriction for Not Paying Child Support in Arizona

The Arizona legislature pushed House Bill 2192 as an additional measure to help parents collect overdue child support. That bill was signed into law by Arizona Governor Doug Ducey on April 24, 2017. The new law allows a judge to send a certificate of noncompliance directly to the Arizona Department of Transportation if the court finds a parent has refused to pay child support and had an arrearage of child support of six months or more.

The transmittal from the judge can restrict the driving privileges to specific locations, such as work and school if the court also finds that the work and school endeavors are likely to enable the parent to pay the unpaid child support. To be eligible for limited travel to work, the parent must be employed thirty hours a week or more.

The new law will likely place some non-paying parents in further jeopardy if they fail to comply with the terms of the restricted driving privileges. For example, driving on such a restricted drivers license in locations not authorized by the judge could lead to suspension of his or her driving privileges, may result in the misdemeanor criminal charge of violating those restrictions, and arrest.

The bill is seen by its proponents of being in favor of custodial parents and adds to the many methods Arizona custodial parents can use to enforce their child support orders.
