Failure to pay child support
The federal government generally leaves driver licensing issues to the states. But occasionally it uses its hefty bankroll as leverage, in this case essentially forcing states to take away the licenses of anyone delinquent on child-support payments.
States that don't comply aren't eligible for federal funding of their child-support enforcement programs. All 43 states surveyed by the AAMVA complied.
In Nebraska, people who don't make their alimony payments can also lose their license.
