BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota parents who are behind on their child support payments are getting more time to catch up.

The Child Support Division of the Department of Human Services is again granting amnesty and returning suspended driver’s licenses to anyone who sets up a payment plan. For every $2 a person pays toward past-due support, the agency will credit $1 toward accrued interest or money owed to the state.

The project was started in June and has been extended through July.

The agency says $259 million is owed in past-due support.

The agency says more than 2,000 North Dakotans have their driver’s licenses suspended for failing to pay child support, and more than 600 have warrants for their arrest.
