    Once you pay bail, the warrant is recalled and the court will set a new court date. You will need to appear in court at the new court date.

    You may qualify for diversionary treatment where a dismissal over time is possible. You should take steps at this time to obtain the services of the public defender.

    It's possible that you were charged with Allowing a Driver to drive while DUI. That is the same statute as a DUI in NJ. You need to retain an attorney for this case. Feel free to call on me.

    You need to plead not guilty and retain an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney you can request that a public defender be appointed in your matter.

    The ticket carries a potential high fine, license suspension, contempt and possible jail. At a minimum you should consult with an attorney.

    You need to obtain your certified disposition from the court to confirm to what you exactly pleaded guilty. You may have pleaded guilty to a local violation which does not rise to the level of a criminal conviction. To be sure, you should re-post this question in the Immigration Lawyers section.

    If you received a DWI based on drugs then yes a surcharge to the NJMVC is required. If you were suspended for simple drug possession you probably just owe a restoration fee to the NJMVC.

    You should request discovery from the prosecutor including all video evidence. Mailing the discovery request is commonly done.
