The first step is to meet with a lawyer to discuss all of your options. Every situation is unique. Is it an agreed divorce or a contested divorce? Do you have children? Do you own or rent your home? Do you or your spouse have a retirement account? The answer to these questions will help determine which approach is best for your particular situation, and the attorneys at the Brave Law Center have the experience to help anyone in any situation, no matter how unique.
In some cases, paying your traffic ticket is the fastest and easiest way to get back on the road, but not always.

Our attorneys can help you determine the best way to proceed.
You need one of our attorneys to work with you on an action plan to facilitate either you moving with your child out of state, or fighting your ex in moving your child out of state.

In some situations, yes, you may be able to have your driving privileges reinstated, but each situation is different and requires a different approach. What caused your suspension? How many years has it been since the suspension? Have you attended counseling if it was for a drug or alcohol-related problem? Are you delinquent on your child support obligation? The answers to these questions help us determine if you are a good candidate to set up a hearing with the Illinois Secretary of State seeking reinstatement. Further, if you are not eligible for full reinstatement, there is a likelihood that you could seek a driving permit in the meantime. Our attorneys will work with you to fast track obtaining driving relief.
