Can I remove my husband's name from joint assets in case of DUI accident/lawsuit? Or would they attack accts in my name anyway
My husband has a drinking problem. Although he is going to rehab, there's always the potential of a relapse, and therefore DUI accident/lawsuit. Could someone sue both of us? Or if they sue just him, would removing his name from joint assets protect them? To add another layer, our property is on a joint deed with my sister in trust from our deceased parents (she and I only, not spouses). Could that be attacked also? Thank you.
Removing him from assets BEFORE any potential liability arises could insulate that asset from any lawsuits. the...
Plea bargain for a first time DWI blew a .14 and got other tickets???
I got a DWI in Ulster County. I blew a .14 and also got other tickets that night. I don't know if a plea bargain is an option for me. I am willing to do anything as far as treatment, probation or classes. Getting my DWI reduced to a DWAI would be ideal. Is there any way?
You will maximize your chances at getting the charge reduced to a DWAI (VTL 1192(1)) if you have an experienced DWI...
I am trying to find an attorney who understands how the NDR works.
The state of Georgia has me on the NDR. I cannot get a straight answer out of them about what I have to do to get off. They say one thing, NYS says another and it goes on and on - over 2 years now. Is there a legal solution ?
Were you convicted of DUI in Georgia? Was your license suspended for 120 days? Do you have a Certificate of Completion...
I received a DUI in New Jersey, if I get a warrant for not going to court and get pulled over in my can I get extradited?
Recieved a DUI 3 years ago to date in NY. Received second DUI now a couple days ago in New Jersey. Will New York be made aware of this charge in jersey and if I fail to appear in court will New York take me into custody if Jersey puts a warrant out for my arrest?
Probably. New Jersey may not extradite you but you could sit for 90 days while they make the decision. Hire an...
How long a probation period should I expect? Will alcohol programs,dui education classes or outpatient rehab reduce probation?
Have 2 dwi and a suspended license charge (felony) my lawyer said he would try to fight the second dwi charge in that I was breathalyzed at the station (45 minutes after initial arrest) and blew a .10 so their may have been a chance while actually driving, my bac was lower. My lawyer seems young and inexperienced but the best i could afford so i do not know if i even have a shot with this defense. If not, and if I do go with probation, do I automatically have to be on probation for five years? Are there any other options to reduce that time frame? I have No prior felonies and have a job so lawyer says I'm a good candidate for probation and can most likely avoid jail time with probation and some community service.
As far as possible dispositions, that would depend on many factors such as what you blew, the circumstance under which...
