Stop Texas illegal punishment of non-custodial parents w/ vehicle registration enforcement

260
Supporters

The Texas Office of the Attorney General under Ken Paxton plans to enact a new enforcement tool preventing Texas residents who owe child support from registering a vehicle. This method of recouping owed child support has been viewed as potentially detrimental to the ability of those debtors to function by experts in the area of family law including family law attorneys and policy makers. Providing for Texas children is an important issue which deserves attention and action but heavy handed enforcement efforts such as the proposed action regarding vehicle registration prevention will almost certainly result in disproportionate damage to the poor and underserved in Texas communities.

The undersigned demand action to prevent the Texas Attorney General and his office from enacting any action regarding vehicle registration in the absence of clear legal definition of what enforcement is best for Texans.
