The MDOR/CSE has the authority to suspend your license if you have failed to pay your child support obligation per a court order however there is a process by which the MDOR/CSE can do this so knowing your rights is critical to getting your driver’s license back.
Having a Peabody Massachusetts family law lawyer review your situation with you in a free consultation is the first step in getting your driving privileges reinstated. Here are a few tips on how to prepare for your free consultation with an attorney so that you may get the most out of it:
- Scan and email or fax all related documents to the lawyer before your meeting.
- Email a history of the problem to the lawyer.
- Email your questions to the lawyer.
- Ask the lawyer if the consultation can be completed by telephone and/or a virtual meeting (phone and internet conference). Save yourself from having to drive to and from the meeting!
- Be brief when speaking with the lawyer! If you have followed the above steps, you should be ready to listen to the lawyer’s opinion at this point and to answer any questions that you might be asked.
Knowledge is power and you should empower yourself to solve this or any problem in your life! If you are feeling anxious or worried about this, the first thing you should do is research the problem online as best you can (but beware of junk information, which the internet is filled with) and then speak with a professional lawyer to evaluate your options.
