Is driving under OVI suspention Different than Just Driving Under Suspention?
Got pulled over Driving under suspention but they listed it as a ovi suspention. I did get a ovi 1 year prior to this but i have a signed paper by the judge that gave me the ovi sayinf my licence would be suspended for 180 days. I got pulled over way after this about a year later. Would this be grounds for a dismissed charge ? or are both of these charges the same things with different names ?
There are several types of license suspensions and they are not all treated the same. Driving under an OVI suspension...
I am charged with improperly handling a firearm while under the influence, with my carry license. Can I ever get my license back
I caught a improperly handling a firearm while under the influence while at the time I was license to carry. I am receiving probation but my main concern is will I ever be able to get my license back or am I forever ineligible?
Changing the category from licensing to DUI & DWI. Good luck!
Is a job allowed to hire you before drug tests come back?
Recently got a job as a mechanic for a dealership, and was fired after a week because my drug test came back positive. I thought I passed because they full on hired me. I put in my 2 weeks at another job for this place and got completely screwed over. Shouldn't they be healed responsible? Yes, I was the one who failed the drug test, but they hired me (all legal paperwork filed and everything) before it came back (almost three weeks after I took it). Something doesn't seem right about that.
This is not a criminal matter. This question should be directed to a labor and employment lawyer on AVVO.
If my stbx has lost her license due to DUI. Am I permitted to deny visitation if she shows up without a driver?
She got an OVI May 5. Her BF also doesnt have a valid license. We've argued incessantly about this. Ive told her if she doesnt have a ride I cannot permit her to drive illegally with the kids. Ive never had to turn her away as she has either found a ride, or not showed up. But yesterday she tried to manufacture a contempt by having her ride park around the corner(shes already played these games before on the drop off w/bf driving) and recording the argument that ensued. Am I in contempt if she doesnt have a license and I tell her NO when she tries to get the kids?
I'm redirecting this question to the 'Family' topic section where you'll find better advice.
How can paternity tests differ?
I took a court ordered paternity test through a lab in 1999 that came back negative. The boy (Now 25) asked me if I would be willing to take another test as his mother has been telling him his whole life that I was the only possible person that could be his father. I obliged because I wanted to give him closure. Well, the test this time (Again done at a lab) came back positive. How can this even be possible and which test do I believe? I am extremely confused. Also could I be under any legal or financial obligations? The original paternity suit was dismissed with prejudice in 2000.
Changes in how the tests are done in 17 years could explain the test, contamination, mix up in samples, there's a...
Do you have to reinstate your license twice?
Recently I have been asking questions about the reinstatement process and I am still confused on one part of it. on my BMV record I have two BMV case codes. One stating a ALS suspension and another saying a court case suspension (which was the same length, 6 months and ended the same time). My suspension ended on NOV, 25 and my driving privileges ended at the end of the month so I had no choice to reinstate if I wanted to continue to work. My court case was finished on Dec, 19th so I already had a valid license from the BMV. once the case was closed was I required to reinstate for a second time because of the timing? Both suspensions are under the same code, 4511.19 and have the exact same reinstatement process (wait for end of suspension, pay fee, show insurance). I ask because I was cited for a "Failure to reinstate"when I was pulled over for a traffic violation. I clearly reinstated the first time... was it a issue because I did it before my case was closed? I was under the impression that once I did it the first time everything was taken care of, the court added not additional charges or suspension.
The bureau has picked up the sentencing suspension as a different court suspension, which the court may have intended...
What is a "ALS COURT DISPOSITION NOTIFICATION"
On Dec 5th, 2016 I reinstated my license, I paid all fines and provided proof of current insurance. My suspension was over on Nov 25th, 2016 and it was only a 6 month suspension with no violations. Is it a issue if you reinstate your license before you are done with your court case? My court case finished December 19th. I noticed that in my case history they submitted a ALS court Disposition notice. what exactly is that, and am I required to do anything for it? The end result of my court case was a charge of a first OVI, 6 month license suspension, and a fine. I ask because earlier this May I was pulled over for a traffic violation and the officer told me my license had not been reinstated. But I have the documents to prove I did reinstate... you dont have to reinstate twice if I did it before my case was closed, do I? I am extremely baffled because I feel it was a error on the BMV considering I fallowed the reinstatement process properly. I got everything fixed at the BMV, they never faxed my insurance somewhere. They were as confused as I was, same with the cop who pulled me over. Now I have to fight a "failure to reinstate charge". I am in Mayors court.
In most cases a court suspension would replace the ALS or administrative license suspension. The court will usually...
