Ga. Comp. R. & Regs. R. 480-49-.02 - Non-Compliance with an Order for Child Support

(1) A person holding a current license issued by the Georgia Board of Pharmacy ("Board") may have his/her license indefinitely suspended if s/he is a person for whom an order for child support has been rendered and s/he is not in compliance with that order.
(2) After receiving notice of non-compliance with a child support order from the Department of Human Services, the Board shall suspend the license and shall provide written notice to the licensee via certified or registered mail at the licensee's address of record. If the license is suspended, the licensee shall not practice during the period of suspension.
(3) A person whose license was suspended for being non-compliant with an order for child support may apply to have the suspension lifted. In order to have the suspension lifted, the licensee must:
(a) Request in writing to the Board that the suspension be lifted;
(b) Ensure that the Department of Human Services provides a written notice of compliance and request for release indicating:
1.That the licensee has made satisfactory arrangements to pay the arrearage; or
2.That the licensee is now in compliance with his/her obligation to pay child support.
(c) Demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Board that the license has been timely renewed, where applicable, and other than the suspension provided by this rule, is otherwise in good standing; and
(d) Submit a notarized declaration that all continuing education requirements, if any, for the entire suspension period have been met.
(4) Upon compliance with paragraph (3), the Board shall lift the suspension on the license. However, the Board may impose any conditions on the lifting of the suspension that it deems necessary to protect the public.
(5) If the licensee fails to timely renew his/her license during the period of suspension, the license shall be considered to be revoked by operation of law and subject to reinstatement in the sole discretion of the Board. The person who held the lapsed suspended license must comply with the Board's rules for reinstatement, pay any reinstatement fee, and provide the Board with a written notice of compliance and request for release from the Department of Human Services. The release must indicate that the licensee has made satisfactory arrangements to pay the arrearage or that the licensee is now in compliance with his/her obligation to pay child support. It will be within the discretion of the Board whether to reinstate the license.
