New measure: no child support, no vehicle registration

The Texas Attorney General has crafted a new measure saying that parents who have not paid child support for six months will not be able to renew their vehicle registration.

Lubbock resident and family law attorney Christina Woods said the new measure could create more problems than it solves. Woods recognizes the fact that a lot of parents want to establish a relationship with their children even after a divorce, but sometimes personal problems make it impossible for them to pay child support on time. She noted, “You can lose a really good job and then end up behind the ball.” Another criticism of the new measure is that parents who are behind on their payments can enter into a payment plan with the agency, which could make the entire court order pointless, Woods said.
