Will my 4 year and 2 month old DUI effect my job opportunity?
In May of 2013 I got arrested for a DUI and had a lawyer as well. I did community service and the MADD program. I did however, hear my lawyer a few times talk about how it might just get expunged. (never have I been arrested before and I have no other criminal history). I just don't know specifically if he did. My lawyer was probono (free lawyer). I recently landed a really good job, and they are currently in the background check process for me, as I signed a release form for them yesterday that allows them to do so. I've been losing sleep over this and nearly causing myself anxiety attacks. A lot of people say I'll be fine, but I'm getting a lot of mixed advice the more I research this topic. Please help me.

Can an infraction violate my probation?
My fiancé was driving my vehicle, his license is currently suspended due to a DWI and he got pulled over. The officer did not arrest him or give him a summons, he wrote him a ticket for driving without a license. on the judicial website it shows only as an infraction. He paid the ticket. Is there any further penalties that can be added? Can this also result in a VOP?
It depends on the conditions of his probation but most probation officers are not terribly concerned about someone not...
If dui conviction affected job and work visa, the convict has no choice but to leave the country. how can he leave on probation?
DUI has affected job and hence work visa, but how can he leave without completing probation as he is soon going to be out of status? He completed all requirements of probation and requested early termination of probation but the court denied it. Now soon the immigration will come after him and deport him?

Does this count as my second or first dui offense or conviction?
I was arrested for a dui back in February 2011 with a BAC of .10 I took the classes, did community service, paid fines. when I went to the last court date the judge told me my case was dropped or dismissed. Now on Friday in 2017 I got arrested again for a DUI with a BAC of .22 I had left the bar embarrassed because i slipped on a wet floor. I know it's not an excuse. But now I'm not sure if this will count as my first offense or my second. I know things have changed a lot since I was in court last. I'm very scared. Please let me know asap. Thank you

How to inform home state of out of state DUI?
I am a CT resident and got a DUI in AZ. My CT license is currently valid and I understand that CT will be informed of the DUI. As part of the AZ court order (not ordered by AZ MVD) I need to have an interlock installed for 12 months which is being installed now. My concern is that CT will find out in a year and then also require me to install an interlock doubling the amount of time I will have it or at the very least will come up upon renewal of my license in 5 years. I am looking for guidance on what my options may be and/or how I can bring it to CT's attention now so I can reduce the amount of additional time I could have an interlock. I am not trying to avoid it, just trying to get it done now and not have it come up later in life.
All you can do is call the licensing authority and they'll likely ignore you.

Best bet is to get an expungement and apply for college instead of getting blown up by an IUD if Afghanistan
