Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Were you insured at the home? Do you have the money now to pay the balance owed? Do you know who the money is owed to?
Thank you. The reason why I ask is because this could be something that is settled. By that, I mean if money is owed, they may be willing to settle and accept less then the $6000, to resolve this and release the hold on your license. You can then reinstate your license and not have the suspension. This is not something that will just go away but if you can find the firm, you can propose $2000-$3000 in a lump sum payment and see if they will take it.
A judgment has a 10 year SOL but that goes to the collection of it, if someone sues you. Here, while the money is owed, the license will remain suspended/restricted until it is settled. That is the way they get their money.
