NJ Bankruptcy Lawyer Explains How Bankruptcy Can Reinstate A Driver’s License Suspended For Failing To Pay A Judgment

The New Jersey statute 39:6-35 permits the state to suspend a person’s driver’s license based on the failure to satisfy a judgment entered against this individual for causing a personal injury or property damage, with damages in excess of $500.00, as a result of the operation of a motor vehicle.

A chapter 7 or a chapter 13 bankruptcy filing allows this individual to reinstate their driver’s license. After the filing, the debtor must forward the bankruptcy case information to the appropriate NJ DMV office with a request to reinstate the license.

Additionally, the debt may be discharged and eliminated in a chapter 13 or chapter 7 bankruptcy case.
