If a background check is performed, what (if any) information can be obtained about a DUI that is not on my permanent record?
I was charged with a DUI when I was 17. Being a minor, this did not go on my permanent record. However, I have always wondered if it is still possible for others to find out about this or what information they might be able to obtain. It has always been my understanding that I have no obligation to inform employers, schools, or other institutions about my DUI. I have not had so much as a speeding ticket since this incident. Typically when filling out forms that ask about legal history, I have always responded as though I have never had any arrests/convictions. But I know that "once in the system, you're always in the system", so I've often wondered if it would show up if I were pulled over and an officer looked up my information, or if background checks would reveal this information to prospective employers. I am not too worried about it being a problem as it was 7 years ago now, but as I am applying to more reputable companies that conduct background searches I have been wondering about this.
It will probably show up on your drivers license printout. However, since you were a juvenile it is not considered...
What do you have to do with regards to paperwork and fines to receive a restricted license after a DUI?
First time offense. I plan on meeting with lawyers soon. But I am just wondering what kinds of paperwork and fines do you have to go through in order to receive the restricted license. This is assuming that the judge grants my request for one at the MVA hearing.
Assuming you are eligible your lawyer will be able to tell you what you need to present to the ALJ to support that request.
Can the temporary (45 day) licence provided after a DUI be used as a form of Identification?
For instance, I intend to apply for a program and they request your Driver's Licence as a form of identification. Can I use the temporary one to do so? Or should I try and use a passport or something else instead? Also can it be used as a proof of age? For instance, getting carded while trying to buy tobacco products. Examples of alternative forms of ID, should the temporary or passport not be sufficient, would be appreciated.
It will not work as an ID. You can got to the MVA and get an ID card issued. It looks like a license and will work...
I just got arrested for DUI yesterday in Maryland with BAC of 0.16. My attorney recommended that I take Probation Before Judgeme
I have been on H1B for 7 yrs. I just renewed by Visa for another 3 years. I already applied for a Green Card. I have an approved I140 and waiting for my priority date to be current to apply I485. Will taking PBJ affect my current visa status? Will it affect my Green card processing time and chances of getting a green card? If my priority date (Oct 2010) becomes current while I am still on probation, can I apply my I485? Will they process it right away? Or will they wait for my probation period to end successfully before processing? If they don't process my I485 till the end of my probation, do I have to apply I485 again or they will process it automati

The ID had my real name and picture on it. After having the ID taken from me I left the scene and was never contacted by police. The only evidence would be the bartender correct? how strong is the states case against me? I'm charged with Possession of a fake Gov't ID
Anyone may be charged with a crime, regardless of whether he has broken the law. While the state might not choose to...
Removal from Ignition Interlock Program?
I had an Ignition Interlock installed on my vehicle 9 mos ago and have had one violation from using mouthwash...one violation thats unexplained. ie-driving during the middle of the day to work and failed but passed minutes later....and two retest refusals due to leaving car on while unloading groceries in front of my house. The MVA sent letter to say I am in violation and removed from program and to turn my license and original suspension will be imposed (12 mos). I have been in program for 9 mos and never had alcohol near my car. Note: When I went to court for DUI charges they were all dropped...do I have a case with the MVA that the violations were non-alcohol related? Does the fact I was never charged with DUI help? I cant work w/o license and Im single dad w 2 young kids in school.
You need to immediately consult with a Maryland DUI attorney. The interlock device isn't perfect and there are ways...
