With who do I need to talk to about my DL hold…
A) If your driver’s license has been suspended or placed on hold due to unpaid child support, you will need to contact your state’s child support agency to discuss your situation and to find out what steps you need to take to have your license reinstated.
The specific agency or department responsible for child support enforcement can vary by state, but in most cases, it is a division of the state’s Department of Health and Human Services or Department of Social Services. You can look up the contact information for your state’s child support agency online, or you can contact your local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to obtain this information.
Once you have the contact information for the child support agency in your state, you can reach out to them and inquire about the specific steps you need to take to have your driver’s license reinstated. They may require you to make payments towards your child support arrears, set up a payment plan, or take other actions to demonstrate that you are working to meet your financial obligations.
In Texas, the agency responsible for enforcing child support is the Office of the Attorney General Child Support Division. You can contact them by phone at 1-800-252-8014 or visit their website at https://childsupport.oag.state.tx.us/.
To have your driver’s license reinstated, you will need to contact the Child Support Division and arrange to pay the child support arrears that led to the suspension of your license. You may also need to provide proof of payment or make arrangements to establish a payment plan. Once the Child Support Division has received payment and any required documentation, they will release the hold on your driver’s license and you will be able to have it reinstated with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS).
If you have any questions about the specific requirements for reinstating your license or need assistance navigating the process, you can contact the Child Support Division for guidance.
