Utah Child Support and Hunting/Fishing License Denials

From the Utah Office of Recovery Services:

A new Utah law (U.C.A. 23-19-5.5) becomes effective July 1, 2021 where a hunting/fishing license purchase will be denied if a person owes over $2500 in past-due child support through the Office of Recovery Services.

Paying for 12 consecutive months according to a payment schedule arranged with ORS or paying the debt in full will restore the ability to get a hunting/fishing license.

Individuals who are already making full monthly current child support payments and an additional payment towards child support arrears will automatically be considered as being on a payment schedule, as long as the payments have continued without interruption for 12 consecutive months.

Please contact your caseworker to set up a payment schedule or if you have any questions.
