How to reduce monthly court payments to a reasonable amount
I got a DUI about 2 years ago and have done all the requirements. The only thing left I have to deal with is the court fees. The county I live in, Marin Co., had determined how much I have to pay each month. I first tried community service but was not able to do the hours needed in the amount of time given, even after an extension of time. I converted them back to payments, but the amount required each month is putting a great financial burden on me. So much so that I have had hock belongings to pay and almost not able to pay my rent and bills. I filled out a form requesting the judge reduce my payments and give me more time, but was denied. I am told that if I don't pay the amount they say I must, they will add $300 and suspend my license again. I am poor and even more so now since my partner of 7 years passed away in November and I am now on my own. I have no assets and no credit and am desperate for some relief from these high payments every month. My probation isn't up for a year and 2 months. I don't understand why I can't stretch the payments out for that amount of time. If I could, the amounts would be reasonable and not cause so much distress. Please help.
Well a second job might help you pay.
What does it mean when on my CA DMV Driving record it says "Action Ended: 12-08-12" after a violation?
This notation appears after License suspension notices and a failure to appear notice, and NEG OP PROOF REQ Notice.
Most likely that's when the suspension ended.

DUI 'discharge' for H1B visa renewal.
I am seeking to renew my H1B visa but got a DUI 2 years ago. I completed, and graduated from, all the required programs etc. I am told I need to get a 'discharge' to prove that all these requirements were met in order to go through with my visa renewal. Is this a process for which I require a lawyer, or something I can acquire simply from the DMV (or elsewhere)?. Thanks.
It is your choice whether to retain an attorney. Not only do you need to obtain evidence that you completed the...
Gas/Bank/Grocery with Restricted License?
I just received my restricted license following a DUI charge which allows me to drive to/from and during work, as well as to/from the DUI program. Obviously, I would need to stop occasionally at gas stations on the way to/from my job & dui classes. Is it acceptable to also make occasional quick stops at the grocery store & bank while en route to/from my job & dui program? If I happen to be pulled over leaving the grocery, would an officer consider this as breaking the terms of the restriction? How am I to eat & pay the bills!
My recommendation has always been to get gas next to the grocery store and keep the gas receipt. Nothing prevents you...
