NJ Judge Temporarily Blocks Child Support Act

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) -

A judge on Friday temporarily blocked New Jersey from withholding trade licenses to people who owe six months of child support when they had no capacity to pay. Patrice Dowe accrued more than $31,000 in child support for his two sons while he spent 10 years in federal prison. Dowe studied to become an electrician while in prison, but was refused a license upon his release due to the law.
