    Yes if they took a judgment against you. Go and see a consumer lawyer immediately as you may be able to set the judgment aside if they didn't properly serve you or made other errors in the lawsuit. If you are served with legal paperwork you have to hire a lawyer or defend yourself or judgments like this can be taken. Also if the rent is high and you have other bills and there is nothing you can do about the judgment you could possibly file a bankruptcy - Chapter 7 or debtors court or you could possibly file a claim of exemptions.

    You can go talk to the state office on arkadelphia and ask them what you need to do to get your license back. It's right where you get your drivers license renewed. If it's too complicated for you hire a lawyer.

    Lois’s Answer

    Alleging these as facts and proving them are two different things. Go speak with an experienced attorney and let them review your evidence. A case we learned in law school which for me was in the late 80s had decided there was no reason to change custody because a woman was a prostitute as long as it was not done in front of the children.
