License Suspensions/Debt Surcharges
Skilled NJ Bankruptcy Attorneys Help You Protect Your Driver’s License
If you are facing overwhelming amounts of debt and are unable to pay for fines related to driving, you may be facing a license suspension for failing to make those payments. For most people, losing a driver’s license will only add to their financial problems, as difficulties getting to work may increase their burdens. Fortunately, many of these fines and penalties may be paid over time through a Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
At the law firm of Brenner Spiller & Archer, LLP, our New Jersey license suspension lawyers provide advice and representation to clients facing debt, including debts related to license suspensions, fines and surcharges. We understand how difficult it can be to face debt, as well as all of the surrounding problems that debt can create throughout Central and South Jersey.
Pay Off Fines and Surcharges in Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
By filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you may be able to pay fines that have accumulated from traffic tickets and other moving violations. If these fees have resulted in your driver’s license being suspended, paying these fines off in a bankruptcy may result in your license being reinstated. Our attorneys have helped clients successfully reinstate their NJ driver’s licenses and find a fresh financial start through bankruptcy. We may also be able to wipe out surcharges, depending on the circumstances.
If your license has been suspended as the result of a DUI, traffic ticket points or some other crime, you may not be able to reinstate your license through bankruptcy. Bankruptcy will make it easier for you to pay fines in order to reinstate your driver’s license, but not if there is a court-ordered suspension.
