Surcharges can only be discharged in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Surcharges can’t be discharged in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. If a driver is stopped for driving while suspended for failure to pay surcharges, then there is an additional $3,000 surcharge that is assessed.
If you do not appear at court, then the court will issue a bench warrant. The judge will direct that the local police go to your home or place of employment to arrest you.
