Do I need an attorney for DUI expungement?
I got a DUI 6 years ago in Sacramento, California. I currently live in Oregon and looking into getting my DUI expunged. Looking into how to start the process.
There is no such thing as a true expungement. You may be eligible for a 1203.4 dismissal which annotates the...
DUI and moving to another state
I plan on moving to California soon and I am worried that a Dui that I got in Florida 8 years ago will affect my job prospect. Is it possible to expunge an out of state dui in California? If so will it completely be eliminated to employers if a background check is done in any other state?
No, it will have to be expunged in Florida, under Florida law. Talk to a Florida criminal defense attorney.
DUI...Upcoming Court..DUI Conviction
I was arrested on 7/15 for DUI, the arresting officer took a breathalyzer sample even tho I told him I didn't trust breathalyzer results and wanted to do blood test. He took me to ER to get a sample of my blood. I was released the next day on OR. I went to my arraignment on 8/7 and the judge remanded me to jail because the DA was using preliminary breathalyzer results. The blood results are still not in as of today and I have court tomorrow. Can I be convicted based on preliminary breathalyzer result? or will they have to wait for blood results? how long does that typically take?
I am confused. Were you released from jail on the 16 and reincarcerated on August 7th. Are you still in jail? Is this...
DUI and jobs
How soon does an employer find out about a DUI. No court or arraignment dates have been set but dmv hearing is coming up. 23,accident with minor injury to my passenger.he left the scene with parents and said he was ok with a swoll eye. still got booked for bodily injury and blowing .092. Pretty much don't believe I can be saved after reading a small percentage of people win their hearings. Can the dmv prevent you from getting another job even though they are not the criminal side? And how soon does the dmv notify my current job if I lose hearing?(just my luck the officer was already at the scene when it happened so had probable cause) Any advice helps thanks
Why would the DMV notify anybody? What type of job do you have??
Looking for legal advise regarding 2008 minor D.U.I in LA with TX id. Didn't take D.U.I class and now its been over 7 yrs.
At the time of incident, I still had TX license. Cop did not detain me or take my out of state id. After appearing in court and paying fines and etc. I was given a 1 yr suspension and dui classes. Its been 7 years since this incident yet i haven't taken dui classes. I can't look up my record in LA because i do not have a CA identification number and was given a special reference number which does not exist when looking up driving record status. Is the DUI class necessary after so much time has passed and i have been in good standing to date? I was told mandatory actions unit has a way to waive the class but wasn't advised on how to proceed by dmv worker. Please advise
You willnhave to complete the dui classes before license re instated. You were given an x number for icentification....
EAD processing + DUI misdemeanor
Hello, I am holding an l2b visa and planning to visit San Francisco for about 4 weeks, apply for EAD (paper copy application via post and NOT online) and return to home country, resign from my current job, serve notice and return back to SF, by when, hopefully i should have touched the 90 days mark to attain an EAD - caveat I have a DUI misdemeanor. Questions: 1) Based on several blogs, it appears that paper application to get an EAD, doesnt always call for fingerprinting. Is that right please- especially with a DUI rider 2) If the above is right, can I shorten my travel from 4 weeks to say 2 weeks, without risking missing a biometrics appointment. 3) What if I miss my biometric appointment.
Most likely you will be given a notice for your biometrics but a DUI alone should not affect you negatively. Biometric...

Concurrent 2 DUI convictions sentenced to 40 days jail, not on probation or court ordered I volunteer to be supervised home instead of work alternative.
Your question is very confusing. Have you discussed this with your lawyer?
