Georgia DA: pay child support or lose auto tags

DECATUR, Ga. — DeKalb County District Attorney Robert James and the county's tax commissioner, Claudia Lawson, are targeting parents who are far behind in child-support payments.

James says his office will notify parents who are more than 60 days delinquent that they could have their car tags revoked or denied. James says some parents have not paid child support in two or more years.

The county will start by send letters to 63 parents to let them know they are about to lose their tags. Parents will be given 20 days to contact the DA's office before their tags are officially denied or revoked by the Tax Commissioner's Office.

Georgia's Division of Child Support Services has implemented a statewide tag revocation effort.
