Will I be able to reinstate my FL DL after a DUI in GA in 2009?
I just went to court and finally handled my DUI. My Florida licensed expired in 2012 & I have not driven since. I actually live in North Carolina and was going to apply for a NC license after I finish DUI school and have my driving ban lifted in GA. I just recently did a driver's license check in FL and realized that my license in FL is revoked/due to the DUI. Want to know if FL will accept the 16 hour certificate class that I take in NC & if I will be able to get my license reinstated there. I am not certain if I can apply for a license in NC if I have a suspended license in another state. Thank you for your help.

Can I get approved again for DACA if I got a DUI?
I recently got a DUI this April and have yet to get convicted. It isn't looking great and my DACA expires in November. I don't have any prior run ins with the law other than a minor traffic incident that got reduced. I've been approved twice and am worried I won't get approved a third time. I pay my taxes and do everything I need to do it was one stupid mistake that I regret. I planned on returning to school this fall. Any advice?
DACA will not be approved with a DUI conviction. Contact a criminal defense attorney & US immigration attorney for...
How long does an ignition interlock requirement stay on a person's record after a level 2 DUI conviction in NC?
Convicted in 2004, enlisted in military and have been licensed legally in 2 other states since 2010. If I move back to NC would I still have to get the lock even though 12 years have passed? Thanks
Yes, DMV requires 12 months of interlock, even after the suspension has ended.
Left Turn accident by a driver who was charged with DWI
Left Turn accident. I was pulling out of a parking lot. Looked both, however there was intersection a few feet down from parking lot.The driver ran the red light and hit me on the back seat door on the passenger side. He hit me and pressed on the gas to move my car out of the way and ran. Some witnesses went after him as I was calling 911. The cop quickly found him down the street and he was arrested for a DWI and DRWL. He also said he had not been in a accident, but changed his story by that yes he was in the accident but I pulled in front of him, we collided and I left the scene. Obvious that is not the truth. the policy report shows he is at fault. I also want to add that now ICE is involved and he maybe deported. My insurance found him 100% and his insurance found me "negligent " due to the contributory negligence law in North Carolina. I want add that the driver was not the owner of the car, neither owner of the car or the driver gave any statements to ANY of the insurances. The driver is encarcerated, so that made things challenging. I am getting treatment for neck pain and herniated dics. His insurance sent me a letter denying my claim. Do I have a case for a lawsuit?

I was arrested with a DWI and blew a .15. Would I be allowed to move from the country for a year?
I was recently arrested for a DWI and blew a .15. Unfortunately this was while out celebrating my girlfriend getting a job offer in the Cayman Islands for a year at a bar 1/2 mile from my house. We have been discussing me going with her for a year since I can work remotely. If convicted I'm expecting 24-48 hours of community service, alcohol abuse classes, and the loss of my drivers license for a year (or if I stay here a provisional license meeting certain criteria and interlock). Is this even a possibility for me to move now? I of course feel I'd be required to fly back to be at all my mandated court dates where my presence is mandatory. And if convicted would I need to stay here to complete my community service and alcohol classes in a timely manner? Or would the fact that I'm living in a different country give me some time to complete these obligations. Nonetheless, due to my idiocy of not taking an uber home or even walking such a close distance my life has become a disaster. I'm not trying to run from the court or my sentence it's just an opportunity we've had and I'm afraid I may of ruined it. Any help or advice is more than appreciated.
Several options to consider to accomplish what you want. You might even have a case with solid defenses.
I received a DWI and blew .15 in North Carolina. Is there any hope for me.
I was pulled over driving .5 of a mile home on Friday night. I passed all the field sobriety tests and had conversations with the officers for awhile. They were going to let my girlfriend drive us home without penalty as I was very coherent and co-operative. However, she admitted to drinking as well so that wasn't allowed. I blew a .15 So at that point they had to arrest me. I'm truly devastated and outright ashamed. My driving record is very good. I there any hope for me getting a lesser possible level 5 DUI or maybe even a wreck less driving case? I'm hoping I can pay the fines (even a larger one) community service, and whatever else is required of me. Anything to be able to get a provisional license for a year and no interlock device.
You need a good DUI attorney. They will know all the options and try to mitigate this. In the meantime you need some...
Will I have to go through medical panel for H1B visa stamping as I have DUI arrest record (not found guilty)?
I was arrested in October 2015 under suspicion of DUI, but was later found NOT guilty under court ruling. I am planning to go for H1B visa stamping in November 2016 in New Delhi Consulate. I have court certified disposition letter stating NOT guilty verdict. So, even though I was found not guilty by Court, but have an arrest record, Will I be sent to physician panel for evaluation?
Not likely you will be sent to a physician panel for evaluation but decision rests with US consular officer.
