What happens if a parent pays his/her child support debt or makes a repayment agreement with DCS and then wants to buy a recreational license right away?

It can take at least one full day for a license-suspension release to be sent to state licensing agencies such as WDFW and entered into the WILD system. So, if a parent's license-suspension release is sent late in the week, like – on a Thursday afternoon or a Friday – the parent might be prevented from purchasing a recreational license until Monday of the following week. WDFW staff, who are available to respond to questions about blocked recreational licenses, are on duty during regular business hours, Monday through Friday.
