I need help with a DWI. Experience with ignition interlock preferred.
-Document requirements for ignition interlock removal? -Specifically where to show up and at what time? -Any further details on the process would be helpful. -Your charge for representation on that day?

As an illegal immigrant, what should I expect at my hearing for 6 tickets?
I got 6 tickets in one night, some being -driving without a drivers license, -driving under the influence, -driving with open alcohol in the car, -lying to the officer about my age, -underaged drinking and a few more. I am an immigrant, unfortunately I haven't been successful of getting my papers. I am 20 years old and have a court hearing to attend soon. What should I expect when I attend my hearing with 6 tickets? I am not sure if my citizenship will have anything to do with these charges but I want to be prepared. Can someone please tell me what kind of things I should expect as an immigrant?
You need to be concerned because of the lying charge particularly as well as the other offenses. If it is your first...
DUI in 2012. Recently Missouri sent me notice of Driver's License Suspension 30 days - What should I expect in Virginia?
DUI in 2012 in Missouri, received 2yr probation. Missouri violated me for minor traffic infraction. Paid fine. Yesterday, Missouri sends me a notice of 30 day driver's license suspension - 3 years after offense. Is Virginia going to suspend my license for a year?! For out-of-state DUIs you have the right to petition the court. I'm pretty sure I would be eligible for restricted but looking for guidance. Also I have completed intensive outpatient treatment and been sober for years now.
All states are supposed to honor each other's suspensions, so Virginia is supposed to suspend you. You may ask for a...
What is considered 6 months for the interlock device in a vehicle? After installation or after 6th check in?
Would it be considered 6 months after installation date or after 6 appointments? I have my 6th check in at the interlock facility next week. No failed tests, VASAP classes complete, full compliance. I'm looking to petition for the removal of the device and I'm just trying to figure out the exact time I can do that. Thanks. This is a 1st DWI and no other offenses/arrests on my record.
Most judges read that law as 6 months from the date of the installation. So, use that date. Good luck.
Increased police "attention" after DWI charge? Real or imagined?
Last year I was charged with DWI in Fairfax. The case was weak and was quickly NP'd with no motions or trial. Ever since then, though, I seem to be getting pulled over A LOT for infractions that I can only describe as BS (failure to signal 100 feet before changing lanes... etc.). In 16 years of pre-DWI driving I had been stopped maybe 3 times, each time being for something legitimate. I'vE had 5 traffic stops in the last 3 months--with none resulting in a ticket. What's going on here? When police run license plates do they see charges, convictions, or both? Will expunging the arrest help this? Moving out of state? Putting vehicle in someone else's name?
Dear Fairfax - It is quite possible that you are now the subject of "heightened scrutiny." However, none of the steps...
I have 2 dui one in 2009 another 2010 two within 10 years
I was giving 36 months restricted eitj interlock I did it and may 2013 I got it all done. Now I still live in Virgina. I am engineer and I would like to move out of this state. I did what they say and now I'm still fighting job opportunities here. Can I move away from this state and function better. Are there any other states that fit me right. Virginia is alcohol state it owns alcohol and its unforgiving to those who play by the rule. You can say what you want to say but I always say if someone paid the price they deserve fresh start. My driver records is good now. The justice system is so wacky . Why do people that do their time can just be left alone. I bet people are so selfishe they will let 50% the population not to be able to get a job and move on instead they want them suffer?
I wish you the best of luck but you are not going to get the guidance you want here. This is not the general Assembly.
