Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Unfortunately, I am not going to be able to tell you what you want to hear, and I'd ask you to kindly not shoot the messenger for accurately reporting the law.

I know that you'd like me to say that you can ignore a court judgment against you and get your driver's license, but it just doesn't work that way. As the DMV is fond of saying, driving is not a right but a privilege. As such, they can put conditions on the restoring of that privilege. It's expected that you pay your state fines.

That said, some of what you owe can be negotiable. If you are indigent, you may be able to convince them to waive penalties and late fees, which can cut down substantially on what you owe. And they'll be happy to give you a reasonable payment schedule so that you can get the balance paid without incurring a hardship. But until the debt is paid off, they will not grant you a license.

Again, I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

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.

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.
