When individuals struggle to keep up with the daily costs of living, some bills get pushed to the side in order to pay for more important things, such as food, mortgages, and medical treatments. Unfortunately, unpaid DMV surcharges can result in the suspension of your driver’s license, making it even more difficult to earn a living.
At the Hamilton Law Offices of Quigley & Fayette, our attorneys have more than 30 combined years of experience helping individuals discharge their debts through federal bankruptcy laws. Together, we will eliminate your debts – including DMV surcharges – so you can reinstate your license and move forward with a clean slate.
Trenton Traffic Fines And Bankruptcy Attorneys
In New Jersey, as points accumulate on your driving record due to traffic tickets or DUI/DWI charges, the Motor Vehicle Commission – commonly referred to as the DMV – will impose surcharges on you. These fees can quickly build up and result in large amounts of debt. Failure to pay can result in a suspension of your driver’s license making it difficult to get to and from work and earn a living.
If you are under financial stress, surcharges and suspended driver’s licenses only make it harder to make ends meet. There is help. Filing for bankruptcy not only eliminates your debt, it also wipes out DMV surcharges. If your driver’s license was suspended due to unpaid surcharges, filing for bankruptcy will allow for the immediate reinstatement of your license.
In New Jersey, surcharge debts are dischargeable in Chapter 13 bankruptcies. Some bankruptcy courts have recently discharged DMV surcharges in Chapter 7 proceedings. To find out whether your debts, including your DMV surcharges, are dischargeable, contact our law office for a FREE consultation.

At the Law Offices of Quigley & Fayette, we counsel clients on the best way to eliminate their debts. In some cases, filing for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy may be the best, most efficient way to become debt-free. In other cases, an alternative form of debt relief may better serve your interests. Our lawyers will thoroughly evaluate your financial situation to determine which approach is best for you. We won’t advise you to file for bankruptcy if a non-bankruptcy alternative exists, and we won’t pressure you to file until you are ready.
