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.

The insurance company has no power to violate your probation but I do not see how you damaged someone's car if you were...
Taken to collections by California Highway Patrol, how can I fight this?
Hello, in 2010 i plead no contest to a misdemeanor DUI. 14 months later, I received a bill from the California Highway Patrol charging me 733 dollars relating to their costs for this. I spoke to my attorney at the time, and he said this is customary for them to try to milk even more money out of people because sometimes people will just pay and to disregard it. It is now 2015 and I just checked my credit report, and I have been taken to collections by the CHP for this "debt". I want to know what I can do to fight this and have it removed from my credit report because I do not believe this is right to charge me anything but the fines I have paid years ago levied against me by the court. Thank you for your help.
Talk to the attorney who told you to disregard it. Then talk to some other attorneys, because I don't think that...

I am the grandmother who was given temporary custody of my granddaughter at birth when her mom was serving a dui sentence
before she became a 1st time mom but t my care one month later on the tip from an anonymous reporter that I had kidnapped her, all lies. Judge deemed no services to mom or me and I never saw her again In the dependency hearings I was denied access to the reports where all the lies that jurisdiction was founded on were due to me I was never able to read or confront the authors. Services were bypassed due to her DUI w injury 3 years before she was a mom. I appealed the order, read court record for the first time realized how badly I was lied about, i explained all this to the appeals court but my appeal was dismissed as moot do to lack of standing. CPS stole our child w/o grounds,denied due process.Can mother join in my appeal to have standing? Any other suggestions?
