What happens when you lose your professional license?

Medical Professionals can be shocked to learn that their family life can dramatically impact their occupational license and ability to practice.  For example, defaulting on a court-ordered child support obligation may lead to a suspension, denial or revocation of their occupational license.

Occupational licensing boards are required to investigate professionals in default of court-ordered support obligations.  Courts may order a licensing board to suspend, deny, or revoke a license after the obligor owes an amount equal to or greater than three times the total monthly support payment ordered.  A court order suspending, denying, or revoking a license, will become valid only after the expiration of a 90 day stay designed to give the obligor a chance to execute a written payment agreement.

Professionals without a license are prohibited from legally practicing within the state of Minnesota.  Any unlicensed practice may lead to criminal prosecution, fines, or delays in the reapplication of a license.

As a seasoned defense attorney, I know how to handle issues affecting both civil and criminal proceedings.  Do not panic if you receive a notice from your licensing board or a court of law regarding an outstanding support obligation.  You are entitled to an opportunity for hearing, before an impartial decision maker, while represented by legal counsel.
