Use Bankruptcy To Get Your Driver’s License Back

Poor finances can affect just about any part of your life — sometimes in ways you don’t expect. For instance, a minor traffic violation such as speeding or running a red light will usually result in a ticket and a fine. If you can pay the fine in a timely manner, this type of ticket won’t be very disruptive. But if you’ve been struggling with unsustainable debt and considering bankruptcy, a traffic fine can be a big problem. Failure to pay a ticket — and especially multiple tickets — can eventually lead to the suspension or revocation of your driver’s license. When you lose this basic form of mobility, it can threaten your ability to get to work and earn a living, further compounding your financial worries.

A suspended driver’s license is one of the many problems that can be resolved by filing bankruptcy. The Law Office of David Carl Hill will help you determine which type of filing is right for you, and will walk through the process to restore your driving privileges and start the next chapter of your life on the right foot.

Make The Right Choice For Your Specific Situation

Different types of bankruptcy filings will create different options to regain your license. A Chapter 7 filing, for instance, will not directly discharge traffic fines — but it can free up funds by discharging other debts, which can help you find the resources to restore your license.

A Chapter 13 filing, in contrast, does discharge certain fines and penalties, so long as they are not the result of formal criminal charges. By working with a lawyer, you can quickly determine if the fine you are facing is technically the result of civil violation or a criminal one.
