INDIANAPOLIS — If you had your driver’s license suspended because you’re behind on child support, there’s a way you can get it reinstated this month.
The Good Faith Initiative, backed by the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office, gives non-custodial parents a chance to get their licenses back after having them revoked due to unpaid child support.
Parents can take part in the program by making an initial child support payment and by entering into an agreement with the Prosecutor’s Office to continue meeting their newly-ordered amount. Once the payment is made, the Marion County Prosecutor’s office will reinstate the parent’s driver’s license.
“This program is one of many designed for community members to fully participate in better employment opportunities and their children’s lives,” Prosecutor Mears stated. “The Good Faith Initiative creates a structured plan for parents to get back on track with child support and better contribute towards their children’s futures.”
Before the Good Faith Initiative was instituted in Dec. 2019, there were about 12,000 license suspensions due to unpaid child support in Marion County. Through the Initiative and the Second Chance Workshops, that number is now down to about 3,400.
