When a noncustodial parent is not making their child support payments on time, the Florida Department of Revenue has a number of different ways to enforce payment. Before any of these enforcement tactics are used, however, the parent will receive at least one late payment notice. If the parent does not respond to the notice or pay the child support as ordered, past-due payments may be collected through income withholding, bank account garnishment or property liens.
Individuals who are not making their child support payments may face other enforcement measures besides garnishments, liens and withholding. In some cases, a person's driver's license could be suspended because of back child support that they owe. The parent will first receive a notice of the possible suspension that they will have 20 days to respond to before losing the driver's license.
