Get Your Driver’s License Through Bankruptcy

June 24, 2009

Although obtaining a driver’s license is a privilege, for most people in Arlington, Texas, having a driver’s license is a necessity. You need it to drive to work and take your kids to school. There are many reasons people lose their driving privileges. Some get it suspended because of an unpaid judgment from an accident where you did not have insurance. In Texas you could have this type of suspension even if you have not been sued.

When you file for bankruptcy in Dallas the automatic stay takes effect immediately when you file and entitles you to get your driver’s license back in most circumstances. Some of the circumstances when you have the right under bankruptcy law to get your license back are when it is suspended because of non-payment of a debt vs. the legitimate exercise of the state’s police power as in a DUI situation.

You can get your license back through bankruptcy as long as the suspension is not the consequence of driving a vehicle while intoxicated that involved death or bodily injury. Another exception to re-instating a driver’s license is the non-payment of child or spousal support.
