Can I get approved again for DACA if I got a DUI?
I recently got a DUI this April and have yet to get convicted. It isn't looking great and my DACA expires in November.

What are a persons rights at dui checkpoints
I have always been curious about an individuals rights at dui checkpoints... I've read before that when stopped by an officer that you don't even have to roll your window down as long as you place your I'd and registration in a bag out the top of it. And then I recently just watched this video: time_continue=319&v=tLnhSl1ajyc ..... so what are citizens rights at dui checkpoints? What are we required to do and cooperate with? And also does this guy in the video have any recourse for the dog scratching his car? And do we really have any rights at all when they can simply exagerate a dogs reaction and say that he hit on the car?
You have a lot of questions but the easiest answer is that you simply have the right to refuse all field sobriety tests....

I was arrested for DUI in Arkansas in May. Pled and given 6 months of interlock, fines, classes. I live in Oklahoma. These restrictions apply there as well. I have a job offer in NC and would like to move. I am more than fine with keeping the interlock as long as required. Can this be done? How do I make it happen correctly?
Yes, you probably can move. The only thing that would legally stand in your way is if there is some sort of probation...

I was arrested with a DWI and blew a .15. Would I be allowed to move from the country for a year?
I was recently arrested for a DWI and blew a .15. Unfortunately this was while out celebrating my girlfriend getting a job offer in the Cayman Islands for a year at a bar 1/2 mile from my house. We have been discussing me going with her for a year since I can work remotely. If convicted I'm expecting 24-48 hours of community service, alcohol abuse classes, and the loss of my drivers license for a year (or if I stay here a provisional license meeting certain criteria and interlock). Is this even a possibility for me to move now? I of course feel I'd be required to fly back to be at all my mandated court dates where my presence is mandatory. And if convicted would I need to stay here to complete my community service and alcohol classes in a timely manner? Or would the fact that I'm living in a different country give me some time to complete these obligations. Nonetheless, due to my idiocy of not taking an uber home or even walking such a close distance my life has become a disaster. I'm not trying to run from the court or my sentence it's just an opportunity we've had and I'm afraid I may of ruined it. Any help or advice is more than appreciated.
Several options to consider to accomplish what you want. You might even have a case with solid defenses.
