Behind on Texas Child Support Payments? Possible Trouble Renewing Your Texas Drivers License!

Texas HB 1846: Suspension or denial of issuance or renewal of a license for failure to pay child support

The court or Title IV-D agency may stay an order suspending a license conditioned on the individual’s compliance with:

  1. A reasonable repayment schedule that is incorporated in the order
  2. The requirements of a reissued and delivered subpoena
  3. The requirements of any court order pertaining to the possession of or access to a child

The court or Title IV-D agency may not stay an order unless the individual makes an immediate partial payment in an amount specified by the court or Title IV-D agency. The amount specified may not be less than $200.

A licensing authority that receives the information shall refuse to accept an application for issuance of a license to the obligor or renewal of an existing license of the obligor until the authority is notified by the child support agency that the obligor has:

  1. Paid all child support arrearages
  2. Made an immediate payment of not less than $200 toward child support arrearages owed and established with the agency a satisfactory repayment schedule for the remainder or is in compliance with a court order for payment of the arrearages
  3. Been granted an exemption as part of a court supervised plan to improve the obligor’s earnings and child support payment
  4. Successfully contested the denial of issuance or renewal of license

An order suspending a license rendered before the effective date of this Act is governed by the law in effect on the date the order was rendered.

Texas HB154: Termination of Mistaken Paternity & Duty to Pay

Texas HB154: Termination of the parent-child relationship and the duty to pay child support in circumstances involving mistaken paternity. This law, effective immediately, aims to further protect a mistaken father from certain child support payment obligations. This new law also amends the current law, SB785: Mistaken Paternity.

The new law states that a petition must be filed not later than the second anniversary of the date on which the petitioner becomes aware of the facts alleged in the petition indicating that the petitioner is not the child’s genetic father.

An order termination the parent-child relationship ends the petitioner’s obligation for future support of the child as of the date the order is rendered. Also the obligation to pay interest that accrues after that date on the basis of a child support arrearage or money judgment for a child support arrearage existing on that date.

Those obligations are enforceable until satisfied by any means available for the enforcement of child support other than contempt. This applies to the current law suit pending in a trial court on the effective date of this Act or filed on or after that date is affected.
