Thanks for the further info. I'm on a conference call right now.....I'll be back with you in about 1 hour.
Thanks for your patience.
Sorry for the Delay.....
You need a letter from the TN Court indicating that the ticket was paid in a timely manner, and that an error was made when reporting the information to the GA DMV. Your license was NOT suspended b/c you paid on time.
The GA DMV needs to correct the error. The TN court should be able to transmit that information to the GA DMV. However, if not, there needs to be a letter signed by the Judge or Chief Clerk indicating the error and asking for the correction.
Call the TN court that you got the ticket in and ask when the Judge hears traffic tickets. Go to court on that day and time. BRING ALL DOCUMENTATION THAT YOU HAVE.
After all cases are heard, and you are the only one left, s/he may ask you what you are there for, or, before s/he leaves the bench, ask, "Your Honor, may I approach"? Hopefully s/he will say yes, and you will have an opportunity to explain:
1. I got a ticket on xxxx, xx, 200?
2. I was given 30 days to pay.
3. I paid on the 30th day.
4. Somehow, information was sent to the Georgia DMV that my license was suspended as of xxx,xx, 200?.
5. In fact, I have documentation to show that it was not suspended.
6. No suspension of any kind shows on my driving record.
7. However, when being "pre-screened" by the FLA company, my background check shows a "suspended for failure to appear"
8. The mark on my background check is prohibiting me from being hired by ATT.
9. ATT needs something to show that I should not have a "suspension for failure to appear" on my background check.
10. I have tried GA and TN DMV's, and each is pointing the finger at the other.
11. Is there ANY way possible that your staff can help me untangle this mess?
12. If your staff can transmit documentation to GA that I timely paid my fine and was NOT suspended as of xxxx, then I can request GA to correct my background check.
13. YOU ARE MY LAST HOPE. PLEASE HELP!
It's a very confusing situation, and you have to make it as clear and concise as possible so that the judge understands: 1) the problem; and 2) the life altering consequences it has on you.
I can almost guarantee that he won't speak to you over the phone. And, you can check in at the counter when you go to traffic court, but there is no guarantee that they will pull your old file. TRY IT...BUT, if that doesn't work, actually SIT IN THAT COURTROOM until you have a chance to be heard.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
