Asked 9 months ago - Lakewood, CAFlag
I've been back and forth to court over the past two years, paid about $6,000 in fines, ask the judge is this all I have to pay, there is nothing else hanging out there, if I pay this I'm all clear? Judge says yes. I pay the fines only to find out not even two months later, I'm driving on a suspended again, have a failure to appear, again, I look up the court index and sure enough out of nowhere there is another case filed! I cant keep this up.
I agree with Andrew. Instead of listening to judges, court-by-court, go to DMV, see what appears to be outstanding, and deal with it. Of course, there cannot be a failure to appear unless you have signed a promise to appear [which you would know about] or you have been ordered to appear while standing in court [which you would also know about]. www.kennedyforlaw.com
