Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles Suspends License for Parents Late on Child Support
In a program coordinated by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (ODJFS), licenses of parents who don’t keep up with child support payments could be subject to suspension. The program provides the county child support enforcement agency with an additional tool to encourage payments. In December 2001, ODJFS began providing information to the BMV regarding potential license suspension. As of Jan. 14, a total of 260 licenses have been suspended. Eleven of the 260 have been reinstated.
