    If you were adjudicated guilty then you would need to contact the governor's office and request clemency. However, not only would you have had to complete your sentence and any probation, but also pay back any restitution. We are located in Jacksonville if you would like to set up a consultation with our office to better advise you of your options.

    I agree with the prior attorney's answer. Also you may have other legal remedies to attack the garnishment, like, for instance, if the fines were not part of the original judgment. Our office would be happy to set up an appointment with you.

    Depends on if this is a current spouse or an ex. Presuming you are still married to this person, then all debt accumulated during marriage is the burden of both spouses.
