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.

I don't think you have to worry about jail.

I suggest you have somebody drive you to the DMV, pay whatever it takes to get your licensed and registration updated, then go to court and explain what happened.

You are looking at several hundred dollars in fines.

What law does the ticket say you violated. Look for numbers like 39:3-29

sandra - I reported your use of a commercial link as it's against the TOS for this site. We prefer that you cite actual law. Furthermore, you really should wait to find out what the OP was actually charged with, as the information you post may not be relevant.
