How do I deal with the DOL if I have r been charged with a DUI?
I put in an "intent to defer prosecution" order with the DOL. They agreed to the order and to contact them 150 days from charge date or 2 years from the date of arrest. I have not even been charged for my DUI yet. The DOL sent me a new notice to now remove my driving privelages for 2 years because they haven't heard. How do I prove to them I haven't even been charged yet? My incident occurred on 28 Aug 2016. Please tell me they can't take my license as my intent is to still defer. I shouldn't have to request a hearing as I've already submitted intent to defer prosecution. Thanks
You were suppose to contact them within 2 years from the date of arrest, you did and now your license is suspended.
Travel after a DUI
My husband got a dui in August 2016, is on nonsupervised parole for 60 months. We were looking to book a cruise to Cozumel, Belize and Honduras in the near future. Will he have trouble traveling to these countries? I am getting the run around as far as who may have the answer.
It shouldn't be a problem. If there are immigration issues, you should probably speak with an immigration attorney...

Can I fight a 9 year old DUI conviction from Florida, so it doesn't count against my DUI case here in Washington?
I live in King County, WA and I am being charged with a felony DUI (arrested 2016). I have 3 prior convictions: FL 2007 Misdemeanor WA 2010 Misdemeanor WA 2012 Felony My first question is the easier one, what would need to be compared to see if the FL DUI can be used in the WA DUI case? The second a little more complicated. Since this is a Felony DUI that I am being charged with, does this automatically mean that the state looks back 10 years to count DUI's against you? Or is does the state go back 10 years only if there are 4 or more priors?

There is nothing intrinsically illegal about requiring an employee to come to work while intoxicated. There are, of...
Do I Have Grounds to File for Contempt and Request Drug Testing, Mental Health Evaluation, and Supervised Visitation?
My child's father is a long-time Marijuana user, alcohol abuser, and I suspect he uses other drugs. He told me when I was pregnant that he had been diagnosed with Schizophrenia and Bi-Polar. I see characteristics of both from him. An agreed parenting plan was entered 1 year ago in which he agreed to not use drugs before or during visits. He has left our 8-year-old alone in public on numerous occasions to "go to the bathroom" & is gone for 10-15 minutes & comes back smelling like his car (marijuana). His behavior is very erratic. He has been absent all of her life until 1 year ago and has only exercised visitation 6 months out of 12 since plan was entered. She is distraught every time she has to go with him as she does not know him and isn't comfortable around him. I opened a mediation case today at DRC per our pp but am afraid that will do nothing to address his suspected drug use because he lies about everything. Can I file a motion to request he get tested and evaluated for drugs and mental health, & supervised visitation until the results are in? I do fear for her safety & see that she is being negatively affected. Pursuing counseling for her this week. Thank you in advance.
