Alcoholic ( soon to be ex) husband put his work vehicle in son's name. He did this after he got a DUI. Can this cause problems?
During the pedent lite hearing, we were told not to get rid of any assets. I recently learned that my husband told our 17 year old that he was giving his vehicle to him and that when he got his license he could get it. My husband bought another work vehicle after. 1) If my husband has problems, accidents, or tickets while the vehicle is in our son's name, will it become a problem for our son? 2) Was it lawful for my husband to change the title over to our son after the judge said not to get rid of any assets?
1) Yes. If your son allows his father to use the vehicle knowing that his father is unlicensed, he could be liable for...

I have a VA License with and out of state DUI
To get a restricted license I had to sign up for VASAP, but now VASAP is requiring me to complete VASAP and the out of state program. VASAP told me that if I just completed the out of state program (where I'm on probation) that I would already have my VA license, but since I received a restricted license I have to comply with both the out of state probation and VASAP. I've been told repeatedly that VASAP has no right to do so. Is there a simple answer here? Thanks.

What are my chances of beating a dui case with a .16 bac
I was involved in a accident where just I was involved and was unconscious at the scene when cops and paramedics came. They did a blood test at the hospital and results came back as. 16 .....I don't believe there we're any witnesses to the accident. It has been 11 months and there still isn't a police report available that my public defender is telling me. I was told my situation could work out in my favor because of the way it all accured and because there was a blood test done instead of the field tests....I'm just worried if maybe I should just go ahead and hire a lawyer or if I'll be okay with the court appointed lawyer
Court appointed lawyers have the same education and experience as retained lawyers. A .16 in virginia carries a...
