I have a lifetime suspension of my drivers license. What do I need to do to try to get my license reinstated?
I had a failure to pass .08 in 2003, and then 9 traffic violations within the following 10 years. speeding/failure to come to a complete stop. My license was suspended for a lifetime as a habitual traffic violator in 2008. in 2009 I was caught driving on that lifetime suspension. No violations since. The original lifetime suspension was in Wayne county, Indiana. The driving on a lifetime suspension was in Henry county, Indiana, where I reside. That suspension was until 8-2016. But the Wayne county lifetime suspension shows as INDEFINITE on the BMV website. Please advise.

What is a Post Conviction Relief for DUI? Is a successful PCR nearly impossible?
I was convicted for my third DUI in ten years in March of this year. I spent three months in inpatient rehab this year and have been alcohol free for over a year.

How to modify a house arrest sentence?
I was sentenced to 2 years home detention for HTV and DUI. I've paid all fines, fees, completed all requests by the home detention office, and not been violated for any reason. In July I will have completed 12 months of the 24 months. Is there any way to be able to have my sentence modified?
You can request it be modified but you can also be denied. Best to hire a local attorney to help you out with this.
Will a 10 year old DUI conviction affect sentencing for a current DUI case?
My partner is being charged with a Class A misdemeanor for operating with a BAC above .15%. He has a past DUI conviction from over 10 years ago. I understand because the conviction is so old it cannot enhance the sentence, but is this something that would mean he is likely to face the steeper end of 1st time offense penalties? Can a judge consider an offense so far back when sentencing?
Yes. Prior criminal history is one of the most important factors a judge considers in sentencing. This is especially...
Can I do something to have my case closed early with cps?
I was wondering if there was anything I could do to close my case early? Like going to court etc. My daughter fell down the steps and broke her leg almost 3 months ago and they opened a case against me, they said there is no evidence and no reason to believe my children are being abused. They opened an IA with me for 6 months with random drugs screens because I was smoking marijuana. I am clean now and I don't see any reason to continue the case. They don't show up when they say they are going too and i get drug screened once a week which no one has showed up to do yet. I just want the case closed so we don't have to worry 24/7 about when we can go out and schedule our plans around them saying they will show up and not come.
The specific answer will come from cps and your attorney. Best of luck since none of us lawyers have your case no way...

Technically, no. However, if you overdosed your children will most likely be found CHINS children anyways. Ask DCS to...
