My ex husband was convicted of a DUI 9/14. He was granted limited driving priviledges. Does that mean allowed to drive our boys
Is he allowed to drive them to their extra curricular activities. I can not control what he does when I am not around. However, when he is sitting in my driveway behind the wheel and I know he is driving illegally, do I send my children out? We have had a difficult custody battle. I am concerned he will attempt to change our current agreement. His DUI may be my best arguement that they should stay with me. He has them every other weekend now. I'm worried it will appear I went along with this if I don't speak up.

I have been in school full time which has delayed my ability to pay or do time. I also am a single parent. I just took time off school to work to pay fees and do the 7 days in jail. Can they find me in probation violation if I havent completed these yet, or do I have until my probation time is up to get it done? I just can't afford to go to jail for 18months!
