While many parents paying child support feel that the ordered support amount is unfair or that the custodial parent is not spending the support money on the children, it's never a good idea to stop paying child support. Doing this can lead to severe consequences, ranging from wage garnishment to revoking your driver's license, but as shown in the case below, sometimes it can also affect your livelihood itself.
According to reports, a Colorado dentist had his dental license suspended back in April after he failed to pay child support. This means that the dentist's practice has now been shut down until the license is reinstated. A spokesman from the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies stated that the dentist's license would be reinstated when he was in compliance with the child support order per the Child Support Enforcement Unit.
