Q: After 10 years do I still have to go to court ?

So I have multiple tickets but there’s this one ticket that I got Because my 4 year old daughter was sitting on her seat then she took off her seat belt from her chair and got up and the police stopped me and gave me a ticket and a court however I lost my license so I didn’t go to court nor have paid the tickets BUT ITS BEEN 10 years since all that and those tickets do I need a lawyer for that To pay the tickets and to see about the court from 10 years ? Or do I just pay off the tickets ? Or first investigate with a lawyer to lead me in the right way ?

A: When you ignore a ticket in NY, it stays forever. 10 years or 30 years later, you need to deal with it if you want your driver's license back. How you deal with it is another question.
