i got a ticket for driving with suspended license. before i paid this fine i got another suspended license ticket, then another until i now have around $4600 in fines. losing my license caused me to loose a good job selling cars at a nissan dealership. i had to take a job that pays much less then i am accustomed to, and have not been able to budget for payments on the fines, and now i have warrants for my arrest. i have to drive to be able to go to work to make the cash to pay the fines and risk jail if i do. i have some money to pay towards the fines, but i am afraid i will be arrested if i do not have the full amount.i have considered going to court with what little money i have, and try to speak with a judge to see if i could make some new payment arrangements, but that still does not solve my suspended license issues. if i were able to get a license i could get a better job and would be able to pay these fines off much quicker.
You need to hire a qualified attorney from your state and jurisdiction, who can explain your options regarding the best course of action and alternatives, and help you develop and execute the best plan for achieving your goals. In the meantime, you would be well advised to stop driving on a suspended license.
First, you need to find some alternate way to get around until you can get to court and try to get a hardship license for the purpose of driving to work each day. To get a hardship license, you are going to need a lawyer. Find a lawyer and ask for a consultation. Consultations are generally free. You need to break the cycle you are in and the only way to do that is to try and find out if you are eligible for a hardship drivers license.
