|Notice Regarding Texas Racing Commission
Licensees with Past Due Child Support
The Office of the Attorney
General and the Texas Racing Commission (TxRC) are finalizing a program
that may affect a Texas Racing Commission licensee who is delinquent in
child support payments.
The Child Support Division in the Office of the Attorney General assists
parents in obtaining the financial support necessary for children to grow
up and succeed in life. In accordance with Family Code, Chapter 232, a
non-custodial parent that holds a state license, owes more than three
months of past-due child support, and is not in compliance with an existing
court-ordered or voluntary repayment schedule may have licenses and permits
suspended or denied pending resolution of the outstanding delinquency.
In addition to a Racing Commission license, other state licenses and
permits, ranging from a driver’s license to medical, dental, and
law licenses to hunting and fishing licenses may also be affected.
The Office of the Attorney General will provide the license holder with
a warning and an opportunity to resolve the outstanding delinquency. If
the person fails to respond, the Child Support Division will refer the
case for administrative or judicial prosecution.
