Williams and rush a debt collectors get my cdl license suspended for a debt without a judgment. Threatening to get garnishment and suspended because of a debt that has no judment.
They can if the debt is for an underlying traffic offense or for a toll road. Becomes like owing state taxes. Hope this perspective helps!

Google this Virginia statute: Section 46.2-417 and you will see that AFTER judgment is obtained (which is usually by default) a creditor can ask DMV to suspend your license. This is s trick that allows the creditor to "hit you where it hurts." You can research where and when a judgment was issued by each court by googling "Virginia Courts" and following the prompts to look at the general district court where you live. Good luck!
I can think of only two ways a license can be suspended: you failed to pay a ticket; or judgment was entered against you related to your driving (ie, an auto accident). Easiest way to find out is to go to DMV and obtain a compliance summary of your license; at that point, you will see the problem and can work toward a resolution. Consult with a local attorney for more information.

I agree with the 2nd response. There are many qualified bankruptcy attorneys in your area that offer free consultations, and I would urge you to seek out their counsel on this matter. Often, I find that filing a bankruptcy and including the debt (provided it is a debt that not ineligible for discharge under 11 USC 523a), and then providing proof of the bankruptcy filing and the attached list of creditors may be all you need to get the DMV to release the suspension on your license. Again, my advice is to seek qualified counsel. Not everyone qualifies for each kind of bankruptcy, and moving forward without counsel could result in loosing assets to a trustee.
it sounds like you might have a judgment against you that you don't know about. You should see an attorney to investigate this further and cosider bankruptcy if you have other debt problems.
First, the firm is a debt relief agency according to the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. We help people file for bankruptcy. We also do other stuff and we do it well, but Congress wants me to post this notice. Second, nothing on this site is legal advice. You are not my client unless you enter into a written agreement signed by you and me.
There may be a judgment that you do not know about. An attorney can help you investigate this situation and discuss your options.
