Defending Your Professional License Over Unpaid Child Support

 

In Illinois, the state, courts and parents have a powerful weapon against you if you fail to meet your obligations for paying child support: revoking or suspending your professional license. This move can not only cost you your career, it can also make your child support woes even worse if you cannot draw an income.

 

At Thomas W. Hunter, P.C. we understand how important your professional license is to you: It allows you to work in the career field of your choice. Our Illinois lawyers work with all types of licensed professionals throughout the northern and western suburbs of Chicago to defend their licenses and finding workable solutions to child support disputes.

 

Finding Effective Solutions So You Can Continue To Work

 

In many cases, people who owe excessive back child support will first lose their driver's licenses. In Illinois, however, the state can take that a step further by taking your professional license. In all, there are more than 100 types of licensed professionals whose livelihoods could be at stake, including:

 

  • Doctors, nurses, dentists and health care professionals

  • Real estate and insurance agents

  • Stock brokers and financial advisers

  • Beauticians and massage therapists

 

These matters can occur in both criminal court and the administrative level through the Illinois Department of Healthcare and Family Services. With more than 30 years of exclusive family law experience, our attorneys are well-prepared to defend you in these matters. We understand how important child support payments are, but also understand how important it is to not unfairly burden one parent with making payments.
