The Kings County Surrogate's Court asks for original signatures and notary seals on all documents submitted as part of the probate petition. You are going to need to have the originals mailed back to you so you can submit them. I encourage you to make and keep copies just in case.

An experienced traffic law attorney may be successful in getting the ticket dismissed or reduced to a non moving violations.

With a 6 point ticket you would be subject to the New York State Driver Responsibility Assessment. This means that if you get 6 points within 18 months, the DMV will charge you an additional $100 per year for 3 years = $300 to keep your license. This is in addition to any fines and surcharges you pay on the tickets. A defensive Driver Course doesn'...
