My driving license has been suspended due to back child-support. .. But I needto get back and from work.. how can this be a rreality. . Thanks, Bryan
If you are significantly behind on your child support, the family law court has the authority to suspend your drivers license. That is the reality. Perhaps you can hire an attorney to go to court to seek some relief for you. The Secretary of State can do nothing without an order from the Family Court judge.
Although AVVO describes this site as providing free legal advice, it is really a simple Q&A forum. The volunteer attorneys provide general answers. No specific legal advice is given here and no attorney-client relationship is established. For precise direction and legal advice, please consult in person with an attorney in your area. Be sure to bring all relevant paperwork with you.
You will have to return to court to see if you can get any type of permit to drive from the family court that had suspended your license. Their are no guarantees you will be able to unless you pay your child support. You will most likely have better results with a lawyer.
IF YOU FOUND THIS ANSWER "Helpful" or " The Best Answer" YOU CAN THANK ATTORNEY RADDATZ BY MARKING IT SO because Avvo awards the attorney points. MS. RADDATZ is donating her time and talent by answering questions to help those in need of legal information. This is NOT a consultation and in no way creates an attorney-client relationship. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS PERSONALLY CONSULT WITH AN ATTORNEY IN YOUR LOCAL AREA who has specific expertise in the area of law you are asking about. Remember that it is the Lawyer who: Punishes the wicked, Protects the innocent, Raises up the lowly, Opposes brutality and injustice, Seeks equality of humanity regardless of color, cast, sex or religion, Leads in every cause, and Seeks the best in everything.
I agree with the other answers. You need an attorney to petition the court for a special permit for going back and forth to work only. In the meantime try to find a co-worker to travel with and figure out public transportation.
Oh, and pay your child support. You may be able to get your license back by making a lump sum payment for part of the amount and a payment t plan for the rest. But if you don't pay, don't expect much sympathy from the court. At least you're not in jail.
