Hello I'm wanting to know if filing bankruptcy could be in my best interest due to a lawsuit from a wreck my spouse was in

More details to this question:
My spouse hit another motorist totalling both cars and bc the car was in my name I was sued causing me to lose my driving privileges. I'm trying to see if bankruptcy could help me fix my situation. I was trying to see if filing would get my license released or if it would even make a difference. They are asking for 1,000 and I don't know what to do

If a driver's license is suspended due to a claim for civil damages arising out of an accident, filing a bankruptcy case under either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 will normally result in the suspension being lifted and the license reinstated.  The purpose of the license suspension in those cases is to force payment of a debt, and bankruptcy stops all actions to collect a debt. 

Of course, there may be circumstances, or some jurisdictions, where this general rule would not apply.  Always consult with an experienced, qualified bankruptcy attorney before making a decision about filing.  Don't use an inexperienced attorney or try to go it alone.  GET QUALIFIED HELP.  YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID.
