Citizenship and DUI.
My brother had a DUI in Philladelphia in 2014. In court he was ordered to attend some kind of school (3 times). He went to the school only 2 times. Now, in 2016 he is eligible to apply for US citizenship (has green card since 2010). He spoke to a lawyer who said he had no warrant so he can go ahead and submit form N-400. But I am skeptical. Please advice. Moreover, our neighbor was denied citizenship because of his previous DUI and has to wait a few years to show a good moral character. Is it possible that the immigration officer, during the interview, is not going to ask for any documents that prove that my brother fulfilled the court order? Thank you.
Your brother will need a PA criminal defense attorney to resolve that problem and an immigration attorney. Your past...
Can I qualify for DACA with 2 DUIs?
In NJ is consider a traffic offense, not a felony or a misdemeanor. One DUI happened on 2009 and the other one in 2012. I do not have any criminal record, besides that i meet the other requirements. I understand that is a discretionary decision upon who is reviewing the application in USCIS. I have read online that in some cases some applications with DUIs have been approved. What would happen if I still apply and the application gets denied. Would there be any actions taken towards me in the future?
You cannot qualify for DACA if you have two DWIs and if you apply you might eventually be detained by ICE. If you get...

What is my final charge?
Four years ago I recieved a DUI and was placed on an ARD program because jt was my first offense. Since, I completed everything required and had it expunged off my record. I will be graduating college soon and plan to join the military however I was told that one DUI can be waived but when I look at my old paperwork I have 3 different DUI charges. One is general that says ARD next to it, one is a combo. Alch/drugs DUI (I had marijuana in my system) it says "nolle prossed" next to it, and another reckless driving DUI that says withdrawn. What does this mean in the eyes of the military? Is this considered 3 DUI's? Is a DUI with marijuana in my system a drug charge or still a DUI? Any help is greatly appreciated! - Thank you!
You need to speak to a Pa. attorney. Nolle prossed is dismissed. Withdrawn is likely dismissed. Call the Pa. attorney.
Post Conviction relief DUI technical mistakes were made...
I have a situation where I have 4 DUIs I'm coming up on the first 10 years passing. But I want to look into post conviction relief. I know there are time limitations but I heard there are ways around that. My question is if there were errors in the paperwork is that enough to overturn a conviction? The 2nd and 3rd offence were heard on the same day and I was convicted that day. ( I was being held on a warrant) The judge had a public defender called in while I waited because he wanted the situation over and done with that day. There was no review of discovery or anything of that nature. Finally, there are mistakes in the sentencing. The sentence for the second offense was assessed for the third offense and vice verse paperwork wise. Does that mean anything? Do I have a leg to stand on?
I'm not clear on what your situation is--is your 4th DWI pending or do you already have 4 and have almost completed...
