Suspended License Assistance From A Perry Hall Suspended License Attorney

Having your license suspended can negatively affect every aspect of your life. You will no longer be able to drive yourself to work, school, or anywhere else. If you do drive when your license is suspended, you will be charged with a crime that carries jail time, fines and points on your driving record. A Perry Hall suspended license attorney understands the toll being without your driver’s license can have on your ability to meet your obligations, and we provide a defense that best supports your ability to retain your ability to drive. The lawyers at The Law Office of Cynthia Christiani, LLC have successfully represented clients charged with Driving on a Suspended License and are here to help you should you face similar charges.

Explanation Of License Suspension & The Legal Process Involved By A Perry Hall Suspended License Attorney

Having your license suspended means you cannot operate a motor vehicle for a certain specified length of time. Typically, you will receive a letter in the mail that notifies you of your impending suspension. This is one of the strongest reasons to make sure your mailing address is always current with the MVA.  Most courts will put the burden on you to keep your address current with the MVA and will not accept an “I didn’t know” defense to driving on a suspended license.

If you do not disagree with the suspension, you will need to follow the directions in that letter and surrender your license to drive a motor vehicle. If you do not believe your license should be suspended, you do have options available to you. You generally have fifteen days to request a hearing regarding your suspension. The letter should have instructions on how to move forward with requesting the hearing. We recommend reaching out to The Law Office of Cynthia Christiani, LLC, and speaking with a Perry Hall suspended license attorney as soon as you receive the notification.

Common Reasons For License Suspension In Perry Hall, Maryland

Many license suspensions are due to an accumulation of points. Under MD Transp Code §16-404, an accumulation of 8 points results in a suspended driver’s license. Points can be accessed for several traffic violations, such as speeding or failing to stop for a school bus. More serious violations accrue more points. However, point accumulation is not the only path to having your license suspended.

Your license can be suspended for neglecting to pay your traffic tickets and for administrative reasons. For example, unpaid child support can result in having your license suspended, as can a DUI.
