I live in NJ and was stopped while at a red light for driving while license and registration were suspended. I learned today that my payment for the registration did not clear when I thought it did. I went online to pay for it sometime back in August of last year, but really I paid the restoration fee for the license and the reg and didnt realize the actual payment I owed for the reg was not paid. So while thinking I was restored, I wasnt. I owe no tickets and was never stopped for any other violation. Because the restoration fees were paid (I have the reciept) will this help me in court at all? I'm a single mom and scared to death of jail time and cannot afford paying a high fine. I receieved two tickets one for the license and one for the registration.
