    Whether or not your wife cheated on you has no bearing on your responsibility to pay child support. Furthermore, in North Carolina you can have your license revoked for failure to pay child support. It sounds like this has happened to you, which tells me there is a child support order in place and that you are in violation of that order. If this is the case, your attorney is correct as going to trial would be of no benefit to you. You would simply spend more time and money only to have...

    It very much matters if your last ticket was more than three years ago or less than three years ago. The best way to handle your current ticket is dependent on this, and other, information. Hire a lawyer to make sure your ticket is handled appropriately.

    In my opinion you need help in PA to determine what happened to your license and to find out why your suspension never began, if you did indeed turn your license in. However, it may be the case that you have to serve out the suspension. If it were me, I would first do what I needed to do to get the clock running. Then, I would hire a lawyer to try to fix the glitch. In any event, there is nothing to be done in NC until PA removes the hold. So, I do not see what an attorney in NC can do for you.

    First, I am going to go out on a limb and say that your assessment of the D.A. is likely incorrect. Second, if you are going to claim racism, you will need to have proof of many, many more instances of this type of behavior in order to prove a pattern. Once instance isn't going to cut it. Finally, are you sure that there aren't some pertinent differences in the two cases? For example, perhaps the other guy did a chunk of community service in return for the sentence he received. Or perhaps...

  5. Will I be allowed to "See" my blood test results "Prior" to my court date for a DUI. How long does it take in NC .

    You will not get the results prior to your first court date. They will be available to you or your lawyer when they come back, which Could be a few months. It just depends. Regardless, I strongly suggest your hire a good DWI defense attorney as it is a serious charge that can carry serious repercussions. Good luck to you.

    If you plead guilty or are otherwise convicted of this second DWI you are automatically a Level 2 and potentially a Level 1 DWI for sentencing purposes. Both carry a minimum amount of jail time, as well as a fine as determined by the judge, court costs, probation, etc. If sentenced as a Level 1, you would get a minimum 30 days active. If sentenced as a Level 2, you would get a minimum 7 days active. However, these are the minimums, I.e. the judge can give you more time. There are things...

    Depends. Would you like someone to try to get your traffic stop thrown out? Perhaps the police had reasonable suspicion, perhaps not. Perhaps the police had probably cause to arrest you, perhaps not. Do you know how to challenge the breathalyzer? Perhaps it was properly administered, but perhaps not. Perhaps some time during the process your Constitutional rights were violated. Do you know how to make that determination? Assuming everything was handled by the police properly, do you...

  8. Is it legal for online background check company to divulge my record when it has been expunged?

    The background check company has done nothing wrong. Your issue is that it appears that your record has not been expunged. You need get a copy of your record to verify the charges are still showing up. If so, and you believe your record should have been expunged, then you need to contact someone with the program you were in to find out why your record has not been expunged. Good luck to you.

    "Adjournment" is an antiquated term that is no longer in use in the manner to which you refer. In any event, it means exactly the opposite of what you are hoping. An "adjournment" would have been the court's permission to put a trial on hold, so to speak, in order to give a party more time to produce some evidence or perhaps witnesses. "Without adjournment" was akin to closing the door, i.e. you were at the end of the road. The closest legal terminology we have today, in my opinion, are the...

  10. Husband needs a divorce from his "first wife" that he forgot to divorce before he married me.

    I agree with the previous answers and would just add that if your "husband" is not divorced from his first wife, then he is not your husband as your marriage, at least in NC, is void. It is unclear who you intend to be divorced. Clearly this man needs to be divorced from his first wife. If you intend to divorce him as well, that is fine, if not, you will probably need to be remarried after the first divorce is finalized.
