Customer Question
my son has 4 traffic...
my son has 4 traffic tickets from may-august 2005 which he has never went to court he was incarcerated 9/05 till 3/10 released with no knowledge these still exist untill he applied for credit to buy a car. On his credit report it said Unified goverment $397.00 we started trying to clear this up. Went to municipal court, after doing alot of digging they said he had 4 tickets he has never been to court on, he had to pay $100.00 bond to get a court date. Is there a statue of limitations on this? Also the re-entry people had checked for any thing against him to make sure things would be cleared up upon his release. Thank you His mom.

hi

 

unfortunately, there are no statute of limitations on traffic tickets and/or fines owed to any government agency. what the re-entry people did was check for outstanding warrants.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
