    Contact a consumer protection attorney in your area. As was previously explained, you have several options here but they are tricky and time consuming. The best bet would be suing them to replace the equipment in Small Claims Court.

    What did the the contract you signed say in reference to the Navigation system and radio?

    William’s Answer

    I presume you have tried contacting DOR about this and gotten no where.

    I think one way to remedy this, as much as I hate to say, would be to file a contempt on the Father for non-payment of support, as you technically have a violation. From there, his defense is that it was sent to DOR, which would then likely have the Judge order DOR to turn over the money immediately and you then agree to dismiss the contempt. If they aren't returning calls or working with you at all to rectify this, then that is one way to address it.

    William’s Answer

    The last one was over or just under 10 years ago, the one before that 22 years ago. I don't really think you should worry about that preventing you from getting a tech license.

    If it somehow does, you'd have an extremely strong case to challenge that decision.
