Shortly after her court sappearance she lost employment and has been unable to get amployment due to health problems. She has not made any payment. Apparently now there is a bench warrant.

The only way to resolve it is to call the court and pay the fines. Then you will need to check with the DMV since her license is probably suspended. You will have to pay a reinstatement fee to the DMV. Paying the court does not reinstate your license if it has been suspended.

Thank you for your information.
Lawyer: lwpat, Attorney replied 8 years ago
If you go to the court and take her medical records they may drop the failure to appear fine.

An accept for my time is always appreciated.

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.
