You are required to appear in court. Failure to do so can result in a failure to appear being entered in your case, a fine, or even a warrant for your arrest.

First, if I were you, I would contact a criminal defense attorney who focuses his practice on defending people charged with DWI. North Carolina has a 2-tier court system.

Basically, the judgement in District Court is vacated and...
First, your boyfriend is the defendant and he needs to discuss this with his attorney.

In any case, you should have him consult an attorney.
There are only certain traffic violations that allow you to "plead responsible" and handle outside of court. Otherwise, you or your lawyer or both of you must appear in court to plead guilty or in any way resolve your case. Appear in court, hire a lawyer or ask for a public defender.
First, HIRE an attorney. That attorney can then continue your case far enough out so that you can get the issue addressed in VA. If you can get your VA License back, you should be able to have your DWLR charge dismissed or changed to something called NOL. Call an attorney.

Depending on the strength of the State's case, your client may be offered a diversion that would allow him to complete some community service for a dismissal in his case. A lot will depend on the victim, the extent of the injury and the prosecutor assigned to your son's case.
This offense is a Class E Felony. Since he would be a level 1 for sentencing purposes, he could receive 20 to 33 months if sentenced in the "presumptive" range. This is an I/A block so he could receive a...
You need to consult a criminal defense lawyer who has experience handling these type cases in the county where your dad was arrested. Talking to the police, while not smart, does not necessarily result in an arrest. The police must believe that they have something. But with all the issues surrounding the child victim in this case, you need a lawyer who can thoroughly investigate the facts and help your father. Contact a lawyer immediately.
If you are on probation here in NC, you must obtain permission from your probation officer before leaving the state. If you are having issues with your boyfriend, you should make your probation officer aware of the situation so that he/she can better advise you. There are shelters that will house you and your children. But do not simply leave the state. Call your probation officer and/or law enforcement.
