1st time DUI and Diversion seems like quicksand / enough rope. What are the advantages, since the DUI is still on my record?
I understand the fines are a little less, that the DUI shows up as 'diverted' as opposed to 'convicted', not that it is likely to make much difference? I also understand 'go see a lawyer' (I have, they were sort of helpful, but confusing, pushy, and I'll go see another tomorrow, thanks), I understand that I *may* get an ignition interlock on my car (that *may* give out false positives and send me to jail or have my lawyer charging me more), I don't plan on driving much anyways, so that's not that big of a deal. But mainly, my understanding is that it's a complicated, pitfall fraught process that will have me running all over town, and if I mess up at any time in that year, I'll just have to start all over again with a year long, immediate conviction. Plus, all the other stuff I may have been 1/2 way through. So, what am I wrong about and besides the 500+/- I save on fines, that I immediately lose hiring a $2,000 lawyer to guide me through the process, what are some real advantages to Diversion again? Thanks!

Will I be able to get an extension on my Duii diversion for 34 days?
By the time my one year diversion period ends I will have all of the diversion requirements completed except for my twelfth and last diversion class and a remaining 30 days of sobriety to complete my "90 days of sobriety". I was on track to get it done on time but left town for a week due to a death in the family and failed to maintain in person contact with my treatment provider during that week. My counselor knew I was leaving town but there was miscommunication between us leading me to believe that the weekly contact could be sufficed over the phone. This was incorrect and it restarted my "90 days". I will be asking the court for a 34 day extension and am filing the extension petition within the last 30 days of my diversion period. I have paid all fees to court and treatment provider to date. What do you think my chances of getting this extension are?
You're allowed one extension of the diversion year. You have to petition the court for the extension BEFORE the...

Will my drivers license be suspended if I don't complete diversion in time allotted?
I was granted diversion on September 3, 2015 and I have completed everything but the treatment part of the diversion. I went in on August 18, 2016 to follow up and request an extension for my diversion which would have ended on March 3, 2017 I'm still attending treatment classes and that's all I have left to do. During the last six months I was in an abusive and toxic relationship and was able to leave three weeks ago which is what held me up from completing the treatment classes I am now on week five I believe out of 13 will the judge still allow me to take the diversion and get this off my record ?
I doubt it. When you entered the program you signed documents acknowledging that you had one year to complete the...
