Do i really need to get the SR-22 insurance if I am a MA resident? I do not reside in NH but I am receiving notices and information if I were a resident including a hearing with the Dept of Safety to determine if I would need to install a ignition interlock device even though my judge ruled I would not need one installed. I am very confused as to what I can do and who to turn to. I feel like I'm being treated as if i have dual residency in each state. I want to know if this is indeed true, if there was anything that I could do to not have to follow the NH reinstatement laws and just follow my home state laws of reinstatement. This whole process has been completely stressful and a nightmare which does not seem to have an end point.
Yes. The RMV will require an SR-22 when you go in to the hearing officer to get reinstated or a hardship license....
Want to know if my DUI is always available to a CORI check. It seems I cannot get a job because of it. Do I have any recourse?
If you received a CWOF on this charge, and if the charges have already been dismissed, then the CORI check of the...
I am a MA resident who was stopped for a DUI while on vacation in FLA. I refused a breathalizer in FLA and they have suspended by license in both FLA and now in MA. MA won't allow me a hardship license until I clear the DMV suspension in FLA which is a year. Civil case is still pending. Under FLA rules, I'm eligible for a Hardship License in FLA (after 90 days) but I'm not a FLA resident so they won't issue me one. Should I just establish residency in FLA, get a a FLA License, and have FLA issue me a Hardship License?? And just wait out the year until they clear the hold and then get a new license in MA? Is there any other way to get a Hardship License from MA?

my friend was in an accident she hit another car in a subdivision where she lived ,she was 2 times the legal limit ,and they found pot next to her car ,she was arrested taking to hosp and is now on probation, she has done nothing she was told to do, has a device she blows into at home, already flunked ,and was arrested again and let go, she has a non trial coming up on the 13th, with this being her first offence will she get offf??
Not with that record of non-compliance. She had best have an attorney.
The real problem I am dealing with is that prior to this DUI I made plans to move out of state. I have everything in motion to do so. If I plead guilty will I be forced to stay in Ma.. Both offenses happened in Ma. I am petrified and don't know what to do? If I don't tell court I am moving and do after sentence what am I looking at?
You need to call a lawyer ASAP most lawyers have free consultations and just because you are charged does not mean you'...
I am applying for job and they run criminal backround ckecks. I have not had my day in court yet. I am fighting charge.
No the charge will not show up on your CORI until you have been arraigned, you should retain an attorney right away....
