Having unpaid court debt or a suspended driver’s license can destabilize many other areas of a low income client’s life, from parenting responsibilities to employment options to housing security. California has some of the most expensive court fines and fees in the country, but now a new set of laws and rules are available to help protect indigent people and their families.
Join this webinar to learn practical tools for advocating that local courts consider low income court users’ “ability to pay” and stop suspending driver’s licenses as a means of debt collection! Find out about the new Back on the Road “Ability to Pay” Implementation Toolkit for Advocates!
