A: Yes, any citation or criminal charge CAN get dismissed. What will happen in your particular case depends on the particular facts of your situation. Call a local lawyer. Good luck.

A: I AM SORRY FOR YOUR SITUATION. Generally to get a dismissal you will need to hire a lawyer (preferably one that is local) to negotiate on your behalf. I have negotiated deals in situations such as yours where my client gets insurance right away and demonstrates 6 months of compliance. In that situation make sure the DA agrees you will not have the ridiculous surcharge. Also, if you earn less than 125%of the federal poverty guidelines you may be able to get a reduction or waiver of the surcharge. Go to the DTPS website for information. Best of luck to you.
