Upon a request from the payment recipient (obligee) a Notice of Intent to Suspend Driver's License is electronically sent to the obligor. Upon receiving the Notice, the obligor has 3 options to avoid a driver license suspension:
- Pay the delinquency including the $25 processing fee.
- Enter into a written notarized agreement for repayment of the delinquency with the obligee and file the agreement with the Clerk of Court and pay the $25 processing fee.
- File a Motion to Contest Driver's License Suspension if there is a disagreement regarding the amount or if there is a claim of mistaken identity. For more information view and complete the Motion to Contest Driver's License Suspension (PDF).
If the obligor fails to select 1 of these options within 20 days from the date of the Notice, the Family Law Division will mail a request to suspend to the Florida Department of Highway Safety & Motor Vehicles. Once suspended, the driver's license cannot be reinstated until either the delinquency is paid in full or until both parties enter into a written agreement for repayment of the delinquency.
