This outreach event will be especially helpful for individuals who have suspended licenses due to their non-payment of child support. Individuals will be able to talk with staff from L.A. County Child Support Services to release their licenses by making a payment or working out a payment plan on their past due support. Individuals will be able to make payments by cash, check or credit card.
“We look forward to providing this special outreach in the community and working with individuals and community based organizations to improve the collection of child support which benefits families in our County,” said CSSD Deputy Director Lori Cruz. “We want to impress on individuals that we are here to discuss solutions.”
Many individuals face suspension of their driver’s license because of non-payment of support. This can become an obstacle for an individual looking for a job. CSSD and other child support agencies can release a suspended driver’s license if individuals agree to a payment plan. Community based organizations are invited to send clients to the March 31st outreach if they have child support payment issues that need to be brought current.
