Multiple late tickets from different cities in Michigan – Michigan Traffic Ticket Attorney Question.

Home » Michigan Legal Matters » Multiple late tickets from different cities in Michigan – Michigan Traffic Ticket Attorney Question.

Quick background: My car was totaled in the spring and I purchased a used car. I was told by Michigan Secretary of State that the registration was around $350.00.   Due to family issues and a low paying job I was never able to come up with that money at one time so I was buying temporary monthly plates. From then until now I have gotten 3 expired registration tickets and a speeding 5 over ticket from four different district courts in Michigan. I  have not paid any of the tickets and I have one final court date coming up for the last ticket I received.

My question is, if I can get the money together for the court date coming up, should I be worried about getting arrested for the other unpaid fines or can I get that one taken care of no problem and then focus on the remaining fines at hand? Obviously like most others in our working class, if I go to jail my life is over, I’ll lose my job, bills will get backed up and no one in my family or among my friends has money to lend me…I would really appreciate help, I’m very frustrated and scared.

Thanks again.

    I assume you are concerned with being arrested because of possible bench warrants in Michigan for your arrest due to your failure to comply with the judgments (FCJ) for these various traffic tickets from either defaulting on the tickets or not showing up to court when you were supposed to, which may be a legitimate concern. Another concern is that you may be driving to court on a suspended license to take care of these matters, which is a misdemeanor crime itself, punishable by up to 93 days in jail. However, you need to contact my law firm today for a free consultation so that I can obtain more information from you…like what jurisdictions (city/township) these tickets were issued in, the status of your various defaults, etc.

    Whatever you do, it is very important that you do NOT just go and “pay” for these traffic and speeding tickets. You need a Michigan defense lawyer well versed in traffic laws and Michigan driver’s license law to prevent your Michigan driver’s license from being suspended or revoked, to keep the “points” associated with these traffic tickets and speeding tickets from hitting your Michigan driving record, to save you from Secretary of State driver’s responsibility fees and increased auto insurance costs. Getting a Michigan lawyer from our office involved now could literally save your thousands of dollars in the long run, and save your driver’s license from being suspended or revoked.

    Call me today for a free consultation so that we can discuss the best course of action regarding your case.
