If you have a Lorain County child support license suspension for not paying your child support, here is information you need now! Many people in Ohio are unaware of the existence of the Ohio Administrative Code (OAC). The best way to conceptualize this is as a rulebook for Ohio laws. The state house and senate pass the bills. The governor signs them into law. The OAC gives directions as to how they are carried out.
If you have a Lorain County child support license suspension, thank the OAC. The code sets forth the steps needed for a child support suspension. All it really takes is to be behind on your support, and for a bureaucrat sent you some notices. You probably don’t get them because you moved, and they don’t have a good address.
If you have one of these suspensions you know what a pain it is to get your license reinstated. Either you pay or enroll in a government “seek work” program. If you are applying for unemployment the Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA) will monitor your unemployment case. Once payments start, they will take some for your kids. Fairs fair.
For the month of March, 2011 the Lorain County CSEA is adding a new wrinkle. They call it the March Madness Amnesty Program. Here is the skinny you need to know:
1. You must be under a Child Support Suspension
2. You must pay one month’s worth of child Support, plus]
3. One dollar.
4. Once that is accomplished you must still pay a $25 reinstatement fee to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The State’s fingers in every pie!
It’s a simple as that. Can it get any easier? The real problem will be getting the word out to people who desperately need this opportunity. We all know that your child support obligation is not one of those things that can be discharged in bankruptcy. You can, however, discharge the reinstatement fee.
If you or someone you know is under a Lorain County child support license suspension, act now. Either pay up with a small payment or do like I am doing. Spread the word.
