back in May of 2011. Then I was asked to come back on Nov 22 of 2011 (not sure why) and I never made it back for the second hearing (my father passed away) but I haven't heard anything back.
Today I went to pay my parking fines to get my suspended license reinstated and the lady at the court office just gave me my unpaid ticket numbers and said I could reinstate my licence once these were paid up in full. There was no information about the charges on my license.
I am trying to find out what I need to do to pay my fines / charges but not sure where to start ? should I be calling the court?
Im reading that I could get arrested for failure to appear in court but I did go to the first appearance . Just wasn't able to go to the follow up.
Why is there nothing on my license about this?
Any information / insight would be much appreciated.
Get a break down of the fines, penalties and interest and hope the judge was kind enough to drop the charge for having no proof of insurance.
It is your right to have clear and precise reason for any action. If the judge wants you to reappear another day, ask why. Keep in mind, your corporation was charged for not having valid plates and insurance, not you, the living man or woman. The court cannot force you to pay [anything technically] a fine greater than you agree to. If you had gone when you were supposed to, you probably could have quite easily had the charges and/or fines reduced significantly.
If you want to represent your corporation, a good traffic lawyer is only like $400. You could have had one represent you in court playing their game while you were attending funeral services and would have cost you less in the long run.
Work smarter, not harder.
