Two Ways to Deal with a Ticket After a License Suspension in New York
Way # 1
Some judges (justices/courts) will allow you to pay the suspension lift fee separate and aside from resolving your underlying ticket. This will remove the license suspension. Often we request this when handling a case where the suspension is in effect, and now we need to deal with negotiating the ticket with the prosecutor.
Way # 2
Some judges (justices/courts) will not allow you to pay the suspension lift fee separate and aside from resolving your underlying ticket. They will not remove the license suspension. They want you to resolve the ticket and pay the lift fee simultaneously. They do not trust you to deal with negotiating the ticket prior to removing the suspension.
This is normally the case where you have neglected a ticket, and now don't want a suspension. In many cases, they will trust an attorney with separating the process into suspension lift and then ticket negotiation. This is one of the perks of having an attorney represent you for a NY traffic ticket.
