How do i know when my probation is complete?
I received a DUI 3 years ago, and am not sure what happens next. How do I know when my probation is complete? Is there paperwork involved? Or is it simply done 3 years after my court date and that's it? Also, how do I go about getting it expunged? And will I have any trouble traveling to another country?
Probation is complete at the end of the term of probation. Three years in your case. You can make an application to...
DUI and moving to another state
I plan on moving to California soon and I am worried that a Dui that I got in Florida 8 years ago will affect my job prospect. Is it possible to expunge an out of state dui in California? If so will it completely be eliminated to employers if a background check is done in any other state?
No, it will have to be expunged in Florida, under Florida law. Talk to a Florida criminal defense attorney.
EAD processing + DUI misdemeanor
Hello, I am holding an l2b visa and planning to visit San Francisco for about 4 weeks, apply for EAD (paper copy application via post and NOT online) and return to home country, resign from my current job, serve notice and return back to SF, by when, hopefully i should have touched the 90 days mark to attain an EAD - caveat I have a DUI misdemeanor. Questions: 1) Based on several blogs, it appears that paper application to get an EAD, doesnt always call for fingerprinting. Is that right please- especially with a DUI rider 2) If the above is right, can I shorten my travel from 4 weeks to say 2 weeks, without risking missing a biometrics appointment. 3) What if I miss my biometric appointment.
Most likely you will be given a notice for your biometrics but a DUI alone should not affect you negatively. Biometric...
Do mentions of the Driver License suspension/restrictions stay on your CA DMV record for 10 years after getting a DUI?
It's been more than 3 years since I received my DUI and my probation is over. I pulled my DMV record and found that even the mentions of my DL suspension and restriction are still on it. All it says is "action ended" with the date they expired (3 years after). I do understand that DUI stays on your record for 10 years (I have it under the "convictions" section of the driving record) but does the suspension/restriction have to as well? Or is this something I can remove somehow? Just want to make sure my driving record can be as clean as it gets given the situation.
They will always be on your DMV record.

DUI v/s deportation
Case in pointers: 1) Single DUI in India 2) Applied for L2 dependent visa 3) Declared on DS 160 - deferred for admin processing If i get my visa approved and eventually travel, do i still have to fear the dreaded 'removal' as i understand that now even a single DUI misdemeanor is considered as significant misdemeanor - not sure if it is true for DUI offence on US soil or outside of United States. If i
None of that.. Don't worry and don't read too much stuff on the "web", as you can see that only helps to confuse you...
