A suspension in Florida would act as a suspension in any ohter state. What you can do is have the mother of your children drive you to and from work until you are able to reinstate your license. What ever you do, do not drive.
R. Jason de Groot, Esq. We do not have an attorney-client relationship. I am not your lawyer. The statements I make do not constitute legal advice. Any statements made by me are based upon the limited facts you have presented, and under the premise that you will consult with a local attorney. This is not an attempt to solicit business. This disclaimer is in addition to any disclaimers that this website has made. I am only licensed in Florida.
It appears you have yourself quite a mess that is no ones fault but your own. There is no magic bullet or quick fix to this problem. Moving to another state will NOT solve this problem. The Florida suspension will most definitely follow you and if you are not truthful with the next state regarding this fact, could lead to more problems. You currently cannot drive and doing so will possibly lead to more DWLS charges. I would look into meeting with DMV for a business purpose only license.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but you are not getting a DL until FL-DMV is happy with you, and from the history contained in your proffer that is a looooooooooooong ways away.
FL has flagged you so it matters not where you go your FL history will almost certainly follow you.
You may want to call the good folks at DMV in Tallahassee (850-617-2000). If you follow the rule of the 3 "p"'s (be patient, pleasant and polite) then you will likely be surprised at just how knowledgeable and helpful they can be.
I wish I had better news but, still, I hope that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo.

There are a few states that have not adopted the interstate driver license compact. I think Colorado is one of the few who does not follow it.
