DUI and moving to another state

No, it will have to be expunged in Florida, under Florida law. Talk to a Florida criminal defense attorney.
EAD processing + DUI misdemeanor
Hello, I am holding an l2b visa and planning to visit San Francisco for about 4 weeks, apply for EAD (paper copy application via post and NOT online) and return to home country, resign from my current job, serve notice and return back to SF, by when, hopefully i should have touched the 90 days mark to attain an EAD - caveat I have a DUI misdemeanor. Questions: 1) Based on several blogs, it appears that paper application to get an EAD, doesnt always call for fingerprinting.

If I have 2 DUI convictions from 08 and 09. will I have to get a sr22 to get my license reinstated?
It says you have to have it for 3 years. Is that 3 years from the time of the arrest or conviction? Or 3 years from the time your license is reinstated?

Penalties in CA for NJ DUI with CA DL?
I am in the process of discovery in my NJ case. If I am convicted, with a BAC of 0.14, I will face a 7 month license suspension in NJ. What should I expect to happen in terms of my CA license/ driving privileged, fees, penalties, etc. back home in CA? Of note, I work in NJ, but maintain CA residency, no injury or property damage in my case, and I currently have a NJ DUI lawyer on my NJ case.
Good chance your CA license will be suspended if the DMV learns of your conviction. In that case, you'll need to file...
