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...

It was obvious I was intoxicated, but there were no other substances in my car. I have smoked weed recently and my court date is coming up soon. I am worried that I will get drug tested and they will find marijuana in my urine on my court date.

What is the probation period for a 1st DUI in VA? Can a public intoxication violate probation even if VASAP was completed?
I got a 1st DUI conviction in Dec. 2013. I was told the probation period was for 1 year. During that year I completed the VASAP classes with no violations.
