    To be sure that it was the DUI being merged into the speeding ticket and not the speeding ticket merged into the DUI (which is more common), it would be best to have an attorney review the Order issued by the Judge following the plea. You may also be able to verify what you plead guilty to by checking your criminal history and driving history (with DDS) to confirm what each has showing. If following this plea, your license was suspended by DDS, then it is likely that the DUI charge is the one...

    The procedure an officer must follow during a DUI arrest is very technical. From your question, it appears that your office may not have followed the proper procedure. For instance, the officer must read you the Georgia Implied Consent Notice after arrest but prior to leaving the scene of the arrest, unless specific extenuating circumstances exist. At the end of this notice, the officer will ask you to submit to a chemical test of your ______ and the officer designates breath, blood, urine...

    While there could be other issues with the property and its maintenance that Dekalb County code enforcement could raise to require repainting the property, I found no reference in the Dekalb County code that stated a property must be repainted before a new tenant moves in. I would advise that you contact Dekalb County code enforcement (770-724-7940) to see what they say. You can ask them as an in-general question without providing the specifics of the property location. Since this could be a...

  4. How much does a no contest divorce cost and how do I go about filing for one?

    In my experience, most attorneys charge about $500.00 in legal fees for a no contest divorce and the costs to file are in addition. Those costs would have to be paid by you even if you filed without an attorney unless you qualify for indigency status, in which case the court may waive the fees. The phone number to the Spaulding County Clerk of Court, civil division, is (770) 467-4746. The Clerk will tell you the file fee, which should be in the neighborhood of $200.00. The cost for service...

    The Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS) requires the completion of certain conditions in order to reinstate your license following a DUI. There are different requirements for reinstatement if you have had multiple DUI’s. The current look back period for DDS is 5 years. For all DUI suspensions, an original Certificate of Completion from an approved DUI Alcohol or Drug Use Risk Reduction Program and a reinstatement fee is required. The DDS suggests that you contact them at 678-413-...

  6. Do I need a lawyer to help with foreclosure?

    1 lawyer answer

    There are many legal consequences that someone in your situation may face even if you have no intention of contesting the foreclosure. In Georgia, your lender can attempt to sue you for a deficiency judgment if the property sells for less than the amount owed on the loan. In order to do this, the lender must file for a conformation hearing within a certain time following the foreclosure. I would suggest consulting with an attorney at this point for several reasons, including the potential to...

    Based on the information that you provided, you have some good issues with this DUI. The officer has marked you down as a refusal, but you are actually being charged with DUI Less Safe, meaning that you are accused of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence to the extent that you were less safe to drive. In a DUI Less Safe, the State does not have a test result to prove any level of intoxication but is entitled to a jury charge at trial that if you refused the test the jury can...

    One of the terms of your probation is almost certainly do not violate any laws. This new charge of driving with a suspended license will likely cause a probation revocation hearing. It is likely a term of your probation that you report this new charge to your probation officer right away. The probation officer may even find out about this new charge in the course of monitoring you under the terms of probation. You may face a custodial incarceration until you get the opportunity to appear in...

    All of the above answers have excellent information. I would just highlight the importance of keeping written documentation of your efforts, contacting your original attorney (if you had one) for their advice, and following up with Probation to be sure the issue is resolved- and keeping any documentation concerning the rescheduling. I would plan on holding on to everything at least until your full sentence is resolved and possibly longer. I want to emphasize following up because I have seen...

    You could go to the State Bar of Georgia's Member Directory (https://www.members.gabar.org/Custom/Directory/Default.aspx?&iSession=0ca82a8e964f4845a191b670254d7565) and enter Florida for the state entry line. You would then find attorneys who are licensed with the Georgia Bar but reside in Florida. You can also consult the Florida State Bar (http://www.floridabar.org/names.nsf/mesearch?openform) to be sure the attorney is actively licensed in Florida also. Based on the above information...
