How can I have very old DUI's I expundged in Montana?
I received multiple dui's in the late 1990's and early 2000's. I subsequently went to long term treatment, completed it, completed intensive out patient treatment, and discharged my probation in 2007 without incident. I have an absolutely clean driving and criminal record since 2002. I have gone on to become a nurse and have maintained my sobriety since 2002. I am now wanting to move out of the US as a result of the recent presidential election. Great Britain is where I am wanting to land. I would like some advice as to how to proceed to try and get some or all of these dui's expunged from my Montana record in the interest of obtaining work visas in other countries. l would like some guidance as to if or how I can get some or all of these dui's expundged from my record. Thanks for your time and consideration
Each state has its own rules regarding expungement. I am not familiar with the laws in Montana, but in Florida you can...
Can I decline a drug test in a custody battle. And if it comes up positive will I get my child taken away?
My ex and I are going to court for custody of error our daughter and he is just in it for the tax returns. He is fighting for 50/50 but in all reality he doesn't have the necessary living for her and he works nights so he would have his girlfriend watch her and then take her to daycare that I pay for while he sleeps during the day. That being said of all his greediness I'm afraid that he might bring up a drug test. Does the judge automatically grant a drug test or will it have to be probable cause? Also the father is on probation and has tons of fines to payback and hasn't followed his probation. I have physical prove.
Yes you can decline a drug test and yes your child may be taken away. Best to ask your Lawyer.

DUI 4 Felony Charge in Hamilton MT. Is there hope to get it dropped to DUI 3 or dismissed?
1st DUI in 1996 when 18 years old in Missoula MT. Just took whatever the public defender told me to do. I had no real knowledge of the legal system or how serious a DUI really was. Ended up being DUI per se. 2 more DUI's in 2005. Again just went through the motions with a public defender. No benefit of the doubt with the 3rd DUI of me leaving the house in a car to avoid arguing anymore with my drunk girlfriend at the time, and then realizing driving was a bad idea and returning home 5 minutes later only to find that she had called the sheriff about me being a 'meanie' and he was sitting in the driveway when I had returned. No field tests or breathalyzer. Just cuffed and stuffed with him saying I was under arrest for DUI. It's now 2016 and just got a 4th one after being pulled over for a headlight out. I had a cold so I took some NyQuil and had 3 beers in order to just go to bed after a long week of work while being really sick. I wanted 1 more beer before I ate and went to bed so I was headed to the gas station to get a six pack. Pulled over within 1 minute of leaving my home like the officer was just waiting for me to leave. I had a fill in judge and attorney at arraignment.
If you drank an entire bottle of Nyquil, it' would be the equivalent of one beer. Either way, this is a very very...
