NJ will not suspend your privileges while the matter is pending. If you are convicted of the DUI in NY, then NJ will administratively suspend your license for the same amount of time NY suspends your privileges.
If you are convicted of the of the offense, you may not drive in NJ and if you are caught driving while suspended for DWI, you will face an additional 1 to 2 year loss of license and 10 to 90 days in jail (45 to 90 if personal injury is alleged). For a 2nd offense driving while...
Your boyfriend will not be able to get a license opf any sort until his licnse suspension is over in Michigan, and he is reinstated in Michigan. Reinstatement is the operative word here. It is not enough that the suspension be completed. He must have a valid license to drive in New Jersey. I do not believe there is much an attorney could do for him.
First, go speak to a Florida licensed attorney about these charges and you potential exposure. You have no duty to incriminate yourself, so I would invoke your right to remain silent. As for New Jersey, you could be prosecuted for identity theft, obstruction of justice, false incrimination,and possibly other violations. Again, invoke your right to remain silent. The other person ought to be able to establish that it was not him, but in doing so it may be revealed that it was in fact you,...
In my opinion you should hire an attorney who specializes in DWI defense. Someone who can navigate the various procedural, evidentiary, constitutional, and legal issues. One common mistake attorney's make is believing a breath test result can't be challenged. You should consult the National College of DUI Defense for an attoreny who is experienced and whose first instict in not to plead you guilty.
This is not a DWI question, but rather a family law question. I would immediately start looking for an attorney who handles divorce, as child support is a vital component to that practice area. Further, if he is resistant, a move could involve custody issues.
Yes he needs an attorney. Underage drinking is a disorderly persons offense and subject to a fine of $500.00 The person faces a license suspension of six months if committed in a vehicle. Further, he could be barred from government employment. Finally, should he ever be convicted of a crime in the future, any presumption against incarceration is eliminated.
As of January 14, 2010, the law was changed, to require interlock devices for all those convicted of DWI, with one exception. Everyone who is convicted of DWI/Refusal will now have to have an interloc device. The excecption is that the Judge has discretion not to impose the interlock for first time offenders whose BAC ins under 0.15. This also applies to all refusals. The alternate of of registration suspension is no longer available under the new statute. See N.J.S. 39:4-50.17
As for time,...
Many of my clients ask this same question. I always advise against it. First, most states who are part of the motor vehicle compact, will not let you get a license from thier State when suspended in another. Further, you are still suspended in New Jersey regardless of where you get your license from. Therefore, the only suggestion I can give you, is to move permenantly to a State which will license you, and not to return to NJ until both your suspension is up and your surcharges are paid.
NJ and PA are part of the motor vehicle compact. PA will most likely notify NJ. As a result, NJ will suspend your DL until such time as your suspension in PA is up. Now, if PA does not take your license, but they report it to NJ, then I believe NJ will still take it.
