  • How old are you? If over 18 why n the hell is she carrying it on? If you no longer live with her she needs to get a life and move the hell on!!! He owes you the money to you not your mother but if you don't care, your mom needs help period the end, anyways why can't he live with you? Other wise I would PUSH my mother to stop n let it go. serouisly!!!! Let him get his license and get back to work.

  • I think you're wrong rebel07... that woman took care of his child and she deserves to be paid that money.
    It's a law now that if you don't pay your child support, you lose your license, I'm sorry that your Father is in this situation, but he chose to not pay and now unfortunately for him, he's paying the concequences.
    Just so you know poster.. your mom can not drop it, it's court ordered. It's not up to her.
    It sounds like if you're feeling that bad for him, perhaps you will let him move in with you and you can support him till he gets on his feet again? Unless of course you're still living with your Mom and she's now supporting not only you but your child as well.
    He should set up a payment plan and once he's started paying again, he could get his license back. I'd work in fast food if I had to, to take care of my children, and he could too if he wants to.

  • Lisa ann is right, move him in with you, make him flip burgers, mow lawns, what ever, and wen he starts making payments, they will let him st up a payment plan, and will not jail him as long as he makes good on his payment plan. I dont know where you live, but where I live there are a few homeless shelters for men, there is also the gospel mission, which I am sure every town has.
