The child support agency can direct the Department of Public Safety to suspend a noncustodial parent’s Minnesota driver's license if all of the following are true:
The child support agency cannot direct the Department of Public Safety to suspend a driver's license if any of the following are true:
The child support agency sends the noncustodial parent a Notice of Intent to Suspend Driver’s License to their last known address.
The noncustodial parent has 30 days from the date on the notice to contest the suspension. To contest, the noncustodial parent must send the child support agency a written request for a hearing.
If the noncustodial parent does not take any of the above actions to stop the suspension, the child support agency will direct the Department of Public Safety to suspend their driver’s license.
The Department of Public Safety mails the noncustodial parent a driver’s license suspension notice to their last known address.
Note: The noncustodial parent’s license can be suspended or revoked for reasons other than non-payment of child support. The license will remain suspended for those reasons even if the child support suspension is stopped.
If the noncustodial parent’s driver’s license is suspended for non-payment of child support they can apply to the Department of Public Safety for a one-time-only 90-Day Limited License for Child Support Suspension.
The Department of Public Safety decides whether a person qualifies for a limited license. Contact the Department of Public Safety with any questions.
