What is my best option?
I was convicted of a 2nd dui in 2005 in NJ, as a minor. I now live in MA and am trying to take care of all fines and surcharges which I thought had been resolved in 2006. I was sentenced to IRDC for 48 hours but was told I could receive like treatment here in MA. However, the MA programs for DUI are much different and lengthier than NJ. How would that work out if I chose to cover the treatment here?
This is a question best suited for a NJ attorney. Re-post in the NJ forum to get better answers.
Actions to proceed with when RMV suspended registration for Immediate Threat?
RMV suspended registration for driving with a suspended license due to CTR suspension active and considered it an immediate threat. Considering there is an active CTR, they will not reinstate until an active license. Can I save myself some money (insurance, excise, inspection) by cancelling the registration all together until I know I will be able to have a license? Do I have to keep my vehicle "registered" in order to have insurance on the vehicle due to a loan that still has to be paid? Maybe too many questions, but they are all connected.
First off, you must stop driving. There are dozens of cruisers out there with license plate scanners now. If your plate...
Can I renew my license in my home state if I have an out of state warrant for dui?
Hello, I was arrested for a CDL dui in Pennsylvania (not my home state) in 2006 and never went back for court. In 2009 i renewed my license without any problems.Now my license is up for renewal again. What should I expect to happen at the DMV in Massachusetts when I try to renew? If they find out about the warrant will I get arrested? Since it went through in 2009, could my license renewal request now go through too? is there a statute of limitations? Will this ever go away? Thank You
Warrants never expire. Rather than worrying about your license, why not deal with the warrant in PA. Retain a local...

Should my parents come to court with me?
Hi, I'm a college student (18) and I just got in trouble for underage drinking. Would it make any difference if my parents showed up to court, or would it be useless since I am a legal adult?
Some judges in Worcester county actually require parents. Typically it is not the case. I think it's always better to...
How will I know if underage drinking charges will be filed against me?
My friend and I were stopped by two undercover cops on the street the other night with beer in our hands. We cooperated fully and they told us that it would not be a big deal at all and that it would be nothing more than a speeding ticket would be and that it would not go on our records. I have done research and it seems like sometimes charges are not even filed in cases where there was full cooperation because the cops don't want to deal with the paper work or testifying. How will I know whether or not they have chosen to file charges?
If no identification was sought from you, then they won't know who you are. If they took your IDs and did some...
If I get convicted of a dwai in new York for blowing below the legal limit of .08 will my license still be suspended in mass
I have a mass license and was recently pulled over in new York and given a dwai ticket (although I have not been charged yet) will my license in mass be suspended if I do get charged? Even though they don't have dwai laws?
The Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles will treat the NY offense of DWAI just like a Massachusetts DUI. This is...
