Losing Right to Drive ...

Over Child Support Debt!

should probably sign up for Uber STAT ... the cash-strapped boxing legend's about to have his driver's license suspended after blowing off more than $300k in child support payments, TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... The GA Dept of Human Services has been trying to collect cash from Holyfield for months, after he was ordered to pay over $500,000 in child support for his daughter Emani Holyfield ... but E.H. continuously failed to do so.

Holyfield was even put on a payment plan to chip away at the debt  ... paying $2,950 per month ... but according to court docs, he missed several payments and still owes $327,858.36.

Now, a Georgia judge has given the Division of Child Support Services the green light to strip Holyfield of his driver's license -- or start the process at least -- as an incentive to get him to pay up. 

A hearing's set for August to check up on his progress. It's unclear how he plans to get to court.

Not paying child support is irresponsible and disgusting. Get your sh!t together, buddy it's not some joke you can blow off. If you don't care about your kid you're a LOSER.

I didn't know you could suspend someone's driver's license for not paying child support. Is that an option available in all states?

This kinda of thing never made sense to me. Put a guy in jail or take away his drivers license because he didn't pay child support. Will that make it EASIER or HARDER for him to pay said child support? I am all for garnishment, for forcing the sale of any personal property and real estate but I don't think the two routes of jail and loss of driving priv really work towards getting the kids money to her

I thought this amount might be excessive, but a little research...$490,000 to raise a child in a high income. Now, an average income over $200,000 without college. http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/personalfinance/2012/12/23/cost-raising-kids/1788415/

That is AWESOME! They will take away your driver's license in NY as well. Pay up dead beat dads! It takes years for these father's to get so in debt from back child support . They are lucky they aren't riding the one way bus to the clink. I've seen every lie story about why these dirtbags don't pay child support all the while wearing gold chains, driving really nice cars, claiming "mommy or girlfriend" support them. He's lucky he's just losing his license.

I'm glad. These rich men/women make all these babies and have us average workers paying taxes out the butthole just to take care of their kids. He deserves to walk. I'm tired of taking care of other people's kids!!!!
