If I have a DUI in VT but have not had my court date yet w/my license suspended, can i transfer my license to CT before it is?
I have a residency established in CT and VT.
You can always try (mind you it is doubtful). Downside though is if you are successful you may end up being suspended...
My ex husband some how gained custody of my son last year, but since has gotten two DUI s. I can I get custody back in court?
I can't afford a lawyer, but his parents pay for his. I am a wonderful mother and am very concerned about my son. The day his father received his lasts DUI was less than a month ago and it was three hours before he was supposed to pick my son up. I feel like I have a good chance to win custody back even without aa lawyer. Do I? I live in VT, by the way.
It looks like this has properly posted as a child custody question. If you can get the underlying police reports on...
What do I need to do to get Florida to release my driving licence.
I had my licence suspended in 2004 for a DUI in Florida. I now live in Vermont and can not figure out how to get Florida to release my licence from up here. It is impossible for me to travel to Florida. I completed my level 1 DUI program in 2005 but did not complete my drug and alcohol treatment requirements. Any advice would be very much appriciated. Thanks.
Unfortunately, you will have to get the Florida DHSMV to clear the old suspension on your license. You will need to...
Caught underage drinking but no citation given -- what next?
So I was at a high school graduation party and was caught drinking by the police. I gave them my name and date of birth and took a breathalyzer test (blew a 0.079). The officers said that I could go through the court diversion process and they would give me paperwork before I left. They stayed with me until my ride came, but they never gave me any paperwork or said what they were going to do with me. Now I'm wondering what to do next; should I do nothing and wait or is there a way to find out if I have a citation/am in trouble? Thanks
If the officer purposely did not give you paperwork, it might be because he forgot but is still filing it with the...
Visiting VT from CA with a Non-Updated DUI License
I am visiting some family in Vermont. The story is I got a DUI a year ago. Completed all court and DMV requirements to be reinstated. When it came time to remove the interlock, I went to the DMV to update my license. Well they botched it and sent me the restricted license. The CA DMV appointments are so backed up, I am months away from changing this, but was informed by the DMV that it is not a problem because my updated status is in the National Registry. In fact I've been pulled over once in CA during this period and the officer confirmed I am okay to drive. Now my question is, can I drive in Vermont? Do officers have access to the national registry?
I am not licensed to practice in Vermont, so out of respect for any local experienced attorney from Vermont, refer to...
Can Bob claim he was voluntary intoxicated if he went to court or would he be charged with disorderly conduct?
Bob and Jon are walking home from a hard night of partying at a local drinking establishment. bob is very intoxicated, swaying as he walks, and Jon isn't much better off. As they walk home, they pass Mike coming the other way- Mike is a gamer and wears gamer association t-shirts. Bob and Jon both find this entertaining, and Bob begins openly mocking Mike about his t-shirt. Mike takes offense to this, shouts at the two to leave him alone and attempts to walk past the two with his hands in his pockets. Jon shouts "hit him, Bob" and Bob strikes Mike in the nose with a closed fist, breaking Mike nose. Bob and Jon stand there congratulating each other drunkenly.
Bob is guilty of breaking a guy's nose. The fact that he drank before striking Mike does not excuse him from the act,...
I was the passenger in my car and the person driving said I had been driving earlier I hadn't. I got arrested too.
We both had been drinking, but the person driving had a suspended license. I think she aS trying to cover her butt by saying she HAD to drive because I wasn't able to. I also git arrested and charged. How can I fight this? I didn't know a police officer could use someone's oral stAtement as evidence to arrest someone when there is no proof that I drive that car. What should I do?
I am not licensed in Vermont, but the issue is something I have seen in CA more than once. First of all, in Vermont,...
