Florida residents with a court-ordered driver's license suspension for reasons such as a DUI, conviction of drug possession or failure to pay scheduled child support, may be able to regain their license with aid from attorney Guy Seligman.
Online PR News – 18-March-2014 – FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – Florida drivers who have had their licenses suspended due to a DUI, drug possession or failure to comply with court-ordered child support payments may be able to regain their licenses if they act quickly. Fort Lauderdale attorney Guy Seligman has three decades of experience aiding his clients in making their case in court and having their driver’s licenses reinstated.
After a DUI arrest, a driver has 10 days from the arrest date to request a Formal Review Hearing. If this request is not made within 10 days, the license is automatically suspended for six months with a minimum hardship period of 30 days. For those who have been found guilty of drug possession or possession of controlled substances, a license can be suspended whether they were operating a motor vehicle or not, and can result in a two-year license suspension. These are types of court-ordered suspensions that Guy Seligman helps his clients navigate.
“Many people do not know or realize that they can request a Formal Review Hearing after a DUI arrest,” said Seligman. “We work to get them fair representation and make sure they understand that signing a ticket is never seen as admission of guilt in court. We also want to help those convicted of drug possession figure out the best course of action for reinstating their license.”
In addition to DUIs and drug possession, anyone in Florida who is paying court-ordered child support and falls behind can have their license suspended by the Florida Department of Revenue (FDR). Making the payments required can result in the suspension being lifted. However, new terms can be negotiated for those in need of a payment plan or who are not financially able to take care of the amount of child support owed.
“Many people can fall behind in their payments simply because they lack the extra money to make their court-ordered payments,” said Seligman. “We aim to help our clients through sound negotiations as well as determining financial stability.”
