I lost my job some time ago which put me in dire straights and then caused my child support to fall behind. Even though my ex knew that I was looking for a job and struggling to even provide for our daughter at my own home my ex had my license suspended. I get that I am court ordered but I literally got to the point that I could either feed our daughter or pay the support. Having said that I can also confirm that my ex is actually doing very well financially. I have not stopped doing everything I can to become employed again though. fortunately I have been offered a new job but it requires my license be valid. My ex has waffled back and forth on agreeing on a payment plan. unfortunately because of the waffling the job may go away. Furthermore a drivers license is required for ever job in my field. I have no way of paying back the delinquency without working. If we go to court this job will go away but will the fact that I could of had one and she refused to work with me be in my favor?
You need to file a Motion to Reinstate Drivers' License. If you can borrow the money to hire an attorney, you should. At the Motion Hearing, you can explain your situation to the Hearing Officer and hopefully get your license reinstated.
