I recently found out that an accident that occurred 12 years ago has resulted in a lien on my drivers license preventing me from getting my license. Please keep in mind that I have never had a license.
I have reason to believe that the attorney has falsified my DOB to show that at the time of the accident I was 18 yrs of age. At the time of the accident my true age was 15. I was unaware that there was no insurance on the vehicle that I was operating as it was my mothers vehicle. I paid my fines in regards to the ticket, which was a failure to yield to the right of way.
I have since attempted to contact the attorney in question with no resolution. He is threatening me that if I don't pay a certain sum, I'm assuming from the damages from the accident that I will never, Yes this is the word the Receptionist/legal aid used, get my license.
They have also threatened that this accident is on my credit, and the only way I would be able to have my license released is to make payment arrangements, or file bankruptcy. I am not willing to do either since I was neither served nor responsible for the vehicle in question.
I have since pulled my credit and it is not stated as a debt owed.
What are my legal rights? Is there a statute of limitations for this sort of thing? And does the attorney in question have a right to withhold the "file" from me?
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
