Good afternoon,I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your son's situation. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
The federal courts have ruled that the "Pay to Stay" fees that some states/counties charge inmates during their period of incarceration are dischargeable in bankruptcy. Once the debts are discharged under federal law, the state will have to allow your son to get his license back, if the only thing preventing him from getting the license is his jail fees.
