Should I file bankruptcy to avoid the Washington State

Customer Question

Should I file bankruptcy to avoid the Washington State Department of Licensing for suspending my License, due to being in a at-fault accident with no insurance.

you could file to discharge the obligation owed to the other party for damages and injuries sustained. it will not help with tickets or fines. those do not discharge, you'll have to pay those to prevent suspension. If the license was suspended for non-payment of tickets, a chapter 13 repayment plan can help. But you are suggesting the license will suspend for failure to have insurance, which bankruptcy will not stop. let me know if you have any further questions. thanks

Do you know if the suspension of License happens automatically.

Can I estimate I will owe the driver 1 million dollars and list him as a creditor, before he even files a lawsuit.
Expert:  Terry L. replied 2 years ago.
you would list it as 'unknown' unless you received a specific demand amount
Expert:  Terry L. replied 2 years ago.
do you have any other questions?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Listed the amount unkown would that in any way affect my bankruptcy, If the un known amount would be the only debt in my process.
