Bankruptcy Can Eliminate Your Driver's License Reinstatement Costs

If you are an uninsured driver who contributed to an auto accident in Ohio, you are facing a variety of serious problems.

  • To start with, the state will suspend your driver's license, which can make it extremely difficult to get to work and earn the income you need to pay your bills.
  • Second, you must satisfy the judgment for the damages caused by the accident. Such judgments can easily run to $10,000 or more.
  • Third, you must pay a license reinstatement fee to regain your driving privileges after the suspension period is over. Such fees can add hundreds more to the amount you owe.

The good news is that Chapter 7 bankruptcy can allow you to discharge both the accident-related damages and the fees, potentially saving you a very significant sum of money. At the law office of Robert E. Bardwell, Jr., Attorney at Law, I have decades of experience advising and representing people like you throughout the state.

Ohio Bureau Of Motor Vehicles (BMV) Requirements

According to ORC Section 4510.10(G) of Ohio law, license reinstatement fees are eligible for discharge through bankruptcy. To have such a debt discharged, you must provide the BMV with a copy of the Petition or Discharge in Bankruptcy and a copy of the Schedule of Debts, showing which particular debts were included in your bankruptcy. Once the BMV reviews the documentation, it will remove the license reinstatement fees from your record.

As your Columbus license reinstatement fee lawyer, I will handle all the details for you and make sure the BMV receives the proper documentation it needs. My goal is to free you from debt and help you regain your driving privileges as quickly as possible.
