Can an expunged record of a first and second DUI offense be used in a custody hearing???
My exhusband and I have had joint custody of our daughter for 6 yrs. He is getting remarried and has sued me for full custody to get out of child support and so that he can move. He was arrested on drug charges and two DUI's (one of which I just found out about)... all have been expunged. Need help.
If a matter has been expunged it is supposed to wiped clean from all government records. You will need to check the...
How to remove a supended license off your driving record?
I got stopped driving with a suspended license about 3 years ago I didn't know it was suspended. Well I paid all my fines and got it reinstated a few days later I get a letter stating that I will be suspended for a year bc I got caught driving suspended. Well my year is up and I'm no longer suspended but it's still on my record and my insurance rates are insanely high. Is there any way I can have it removed so I can have lower insurance rates?
You can get the license reinstated but you cannot remove it from your driver's record. The issue of you insurance...
Why plead no contest to DUI when blood test was lost?
I was involved Ina head-on MVA after the front end of my car was clipped in a hit-and-run, sending my car into oncoming traffic. The result was a collision with a truck. It was 5 am as I was on my way to work. As the state police were searching my purse for ID they found a prescription bottle of pain medication I had filled the day prior. If they had counted them, it would have been discovered that all were there. I wasn't charged with DUI until over a year later in the course of a civil suit. As it was a hit-and- run that started the chain of command, I'm the only one left to go after in the money train. I called the state crime lab repeatedly and they have no blood test results for me even though one was done upon my ER admission. It was discarded before I was even sent to a room. What I'd like to know is why I'd be advised to plea no contest by my attorney. I was already thoroughly upset at the charge being dismissed due to a technicality, but the idea of pleading no contest seems beyond ludicrous! The assistant DA wants to get my medical records, which as of now the judge has denied.
That is not a question that we can answer. We haven't seen the other evidence, but only have your interpretation of it....

What will happen if I get kicked out of my PTI program?
A few months ago I was arrested for possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. I decided to enroll in PTI rather than hire a lawyer and fight the charge, but only because I had no information on what the potential penalties were for my misdemeanor. Now that I am in the program I am worried I will not be able to pass every drug test, seeing as I have extreme anxiety and it is hard for me to ease it without the help of marijuana. I just want to know what would happen if I didn't complete the program, and what the outcome would be once my case was prosecuted.
Q: What will happen if I get kicked out of my PTI program? I am not a LA lawyer so I cannot comment on matters of...
Can i have a lawyer just plead guilty to a dwi case without it even going to court so i can just start the process of getting
it over with? i missed my orginial court date so i guess can the DA and my lawyer just agree on me pleading guilty so i can just start the process of getting it behind me? i always have 2 more charges of unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling and phone harrassment....can my ex go "drop" recant the charges and hopefully the DA will agree or do i have to go to court for that? those charges r from 2013 and i doubt she even shows in court but it will take months to even get that far and its showing up on my back ground check and keeping me from getting a job........what r my fastest options? thanks

What should I expect the penalties are from my 1st DWI in Louisiana
I was pulled over and I blew a .093 on the breathalyzer. This is my first DWI and I go to court next week, I'm really very nervous about what to expect. I was thinking I should pled guilty with a public defender and take the classes, community service, and if it means getting my license back, the interlocking device.
Fines, classes, probation. Consult with a local DUI lawyer. YOur BAC was really low, you may be able to get the case...
