Will being charged with a misdemeanor DUI violate my probation in another county?
I was charged with a misdemeanor DUI in Will County, but I have felony probation in Cook County. Im wondering if they will find out or how long it would take for them to find out. And if they do find out will it violate my probation.
Cook county will find out and will most likely violate your probation. There's no way to predict when exactly but most...
DUI defense question
I had a question about a DUI charge. I was pulled over and received a DUI- the police's main evidence is that I was swerving and speeding. I did not blow or do SFST. I have phone records that show i was texting during the time the officer observed my vehicle. Would this evidence generally be acceptable in creating reasonable doubt to explain my driving?
DUI = get a lawyer. There are serious consequences involved in this case. A judge will likely not accept this sort...

How should I go about getting an Illinois license when I have a prior DUI in Indiana?
I grew up and got my license in Indiana. One month before moving to Chicago, I got a DUI (in Indiana). I was given permission to serve probation and attend substance abuse counseling in Illinois, but my license was suspended for 3 months. I sold my car and haven't driven since. Now its been a little over 2 years and I'd like to at least be able to drive if I wanted/needed to, but I'm concerned with the non-standard nature of my situation ---- My initial 3 month suspension has obviously passed, but my license in Indiana is still suspended, pending submission of an SR22 and payment of reinstatement fee. I'm now an Illinois resident, so having an Illinois license would be preferred. Indiana BMV told me if I did not wish to reinstate my Indiana license (to get an Illinois license instead), I would just have to provide proof that I no longer live in Indiana and the suspension on my Indiana license would be released. If that's true, would Illinois still require me to get an SR22? I understand that Illinois would still be able to see a previous DUI and suspension, but if I no longer have an "active" suspension (in Indiana), would I still face obstacles/repercussions in Illinois?
All excellent questions. First we start with the premise that EVERYTHING in IL is MORE DIFFICULT to achieve than...

Married a girl from Denmark drunk, how do I resolve it.
My fiance and I live in Illinois and want to get married. However, we just found out he us still married. When he was 25 yrs old (he is now 55) he got drunk and married a girl from Denmark here on vacation. She stated she would get it annulled through the Consulate when she went back home a week later but as it turns out she did not. We have made contact with her and she is still in Denmark and remarried. How do we get this resolved.
The simplest thing may be to file for divorce. Check with your attorney, or if you don't have one, get with an...
