Prosecutor offers parents behind on child support amnesty

Allen County Prosecutor Karen Richards

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A northeastern Indiana prosecutor is offering parents who lost driving privileges because they’re behind on child support payments a chance to get back behind the wheel.

Allen County Prosecutor Karen Richards tells The Journal Gazette ( ) that those who make a one-month payment toward their child support will get their drivers’ licenses reinstated under the “Drive Back to Work” driver’s license amnesty day set for June 17.

The program does not apply to any child support cases in other counties. Richards says if the individual fails to continue to make the payments, the driver’s license will be suspended again. Indiana allows licenses to be suspended if a parent is $2,000 or three months behind in payments.
