Can i obtain green card if im currently on probation for a DUI? I have no other criminal record
i applied for a green card through my wife who is a US Citizen. We have 1 son together (10 months old). Im on probation for DUI. My probation will be over in August 2018. We sent documentation to immigration of my wife suffering from postpartum depression and depression.

Im on probation for 5 years for a misdemeanor dui can i register to vote?

Yes. Probation does not disenfranchise you. Nor would even a misdemeanor conviction.
Appeared at my first court hearing for a dui. Upon finding out my name was not listed on the calendar..
So I went to the DAs office and was told by the secretary I wasn't charged year pending blood test results. I was arrested in 8-30. Now there was an issue with the way the arresting officer filled out my DMV pink sheet. He checked off that I refused a blood test. So now I'm confused. I had planned to plead not guilty to buy some time and look over the facts of the case and was counting on getting the police report today because I thought the DA wa going to go for a blood test refusal and try to take me to town. Now I have to wait. I'm not holding my breath and I know the DA may just be really busy.

If my insurance finds out that I damaged someone's car while intoxicated (not while driving), does this violate DUI probation?
I accidentally damaged someone's car while intoxicated in a parking lot, but neither of us were driving. I'm hoping to claim this through my insurance so that I will be protected from unreasonably high demands from the other party. I am definitely willing to pay for the damages. I had a 1st DUI (California) that was within 3 years from the date of the incident. If I tell my insurance company that I was drunk (not driving) when I accidentally damaged someone's car, will this somehow get me in trouble with the court or DMV? Thank you for your time!
The insurance company has no power to violate your probation but I do not see how you damaged someone's car if you were...
