WVC 48 - 15 - 304 §48-15-304. Procedure where license to practice law may be subject to denial, suspension or restriction.
If a person who has been admitted to the practice of law in this state by order of the supreme court of appeals is determined to be in default under a support order or has failed to comply with a subpoena or warrant in a paternity or child support proceeding, such that his or her other licenses are subject to suspension or restriction under this article, the bureau for child support enforcement may send a notice listing the name and social security number or other identification number to the lawyer disciplinary board established by the supreme court of appeals. The Legislature hereby requests the supreme court of appeals to promptly adopt rules pursuant to its constitutional authority to govern the practice of law that would include as attorney misconduct for which an attorney may be disciplined, situations in which a person licensed to practice law in West Virginia has been determined to be in default under a support order or has failed to comply with a subpoena or warrant in a paternity or child support proceeding.
