The Act amends many provisions in the Code regarding licensing provisions for various professions, businesses, and drivers, as well as general child support and divorce provisions. Specifically, the Act allows for the suspension, revocation, and, in some cases, denial of licenses for mortgage lenders and brokers, professional foresters, pharmacists, real estate agents and brokers, and insurance agents, among others. The Act amends provisions relating to alimony and child support generally, as well as those regarding the computation and award of child support. The Act revises the form for final judgment and decree of divorce and provides for the issuance of certified state-wide lists of persons not in compliance with a court order for child support to certain licensing entities. It also provides various notice provisions to the delinquent obligor so that a person has the opportunity to comply prior to having his or her license revoked, denied, or suspended.
