I haven't been set a date for court for my second DUI. Can i get my license back and can i request for it to be dismissed?
I got charged with first offense DUI September 2011. The judge did not accept a plea upon me voluntarily entering the interlock program. In March of 2012, i was caught driving with expired registration and charged with my second DUI because of my revoked status. DMV sent me no notification of my license being suspended or my registration needed renewed. The court of the Second DUI now has jurisdiction over everything, but they have yet to set a date for me to appear. After march, can i request for the case to be dismissed, take my classes, pay my fines and get the charges dropped and my license back?

My DUI ticket was dismissed, but the DMV is still requiring me to take a DUI class,How can I still get a valid license for work?
I had received a permitting DUI. My friend was driving my car and got a DUI, but since it was my car I received a permitting DUI. The ticket was then dismissed but it still made it to the DMV. the dmv is now saying I have to take the DUI course class to receive my license back, but my job requires a valid license. Is there anyway to get around that class, or anyway I can get a permit to still drive to work??!!!

I over dosed twice within a week a cop told my husband in order to keep cps away he needed to get a dvp on me. So he did. When we went to court the first time I was so high the judge found me incompetent and awarded me a guardian of lightum. I was suppose to go into some type of treatment. I can't get in anywhere. I've still been using and my attorney said I will get tested. I don't like this attorney she's rude so I've not told her I Cldnt get in anywhere or that I'm gonna test dirty. I'm suppose to go to court later today. My husband isn't showing up so that will get the dvp dismissed but my attorney says that since the judge knows I'm a drug addict that I still need to be there and that is wld be bad if I don't show up. Idk what to do.
Not showing up may cause there to be a warrant issued. Find a program without delay and speak to counsel.
Can my employer fire me due to my prior drug addiction, if I am currently clean and under treatment for addiction?
I have been in a treatment center for 30 days, I am currently seeking out treatment care. I have been clean for over 46 days now,my question is....my company is in Chapter13, when I return to work, can they terminate my employment if I am drug tested, and levels for pot still show in my urine? I have remained cleaned, and my levels continue to drop, but due to the long duration of my use, it still remains in my urine. I do have proof that my levels are continuing to drop.
You need to consult with an attorney that specializes in employment/labor law issues.
