    A Registration reflects the Registered Owner. Your friend is not the owner, you are. If you trust her.... And there is no money owed on the vehicle or a lien, you could transfer it to your friend. Obviously, there is some great risk there...

    If there is "no magic" to DUI defense, I have then wasted huge amounts of money and time (see www.DougAndrews.com ) learning differently. With all respect due Mr. Sieg, as an Entertainment Lawyer, he should stick to Entertainment Law where there is also no magic I am sure. What a competent DUI lawyer does is make it look like magic when the BAC test disappears for a potential Perano issue or the Roadblock held unconstitutional for failure to comply with the Golden case......wonder if Mr....

    In what Court and where did you get convicted of the DUI? Sometimes it matters. If this old DUI is the only mark against you to be a foster mom, then the current DHR commercials are a lie ("You don't have to be a perfect parent...). If an old DUI is absolutely disqualifying, then many high powered folks would be barred, including Pres George W. Bush. Consider getting an updated Clinical Evaluation to show you have NO alcohol problem now. If the old DUI was a one time lapse in judgment,...

    An arrest may be expunged IF the prosecutor decline to indict or file an accusation. Suggest you contact an attorney to try to negotiate dismissal of the warrant for you to pay the check (plus costs, maybe). Google: GBI expunge arrest record so you can see what the guidancve is about expungement.

    Your upset is justifiable. Once an officer even thinks you have been drinking, the presumption of being a hazard on the roads arises in the mind of the officer. The officer cares more for the public safety than your right to be left alone until proven guilty. There is apparently a presumption of guilt on the roadside...only in court and only for the jury is the presumption of innocence mandated. May I ask you a question: if a citizen is accused of a crime, including DUI, who needs a lawyer...

    I suggest you see JAG Legal Assistance, who can draw up a Separation/Settlement Agreement. There are websites that can help you do it yourselves, but it DOES need to be done correctly. However, EVERY judge hates cases with no lawyer, because they are rarely done correctly. Make the judge happy, have your wife get an attorney to review the pleadings before they are filed to make sure they are adequate. It should only take one hour to do. Alternatively, join an American Legion or VFW and...

    Mr. Kelley is correct. The military still punishes adultery...especially when an angry spouse complains to the command. How will the military know who is a roommate? Easy, the current wife might not want a divorce, or may be scorned and seek vengeance... AND when you apply for Bar admission, you will have to pass a character and fitness investigation...SOME people still believe that married folks should not engage in sex or shack up with another not one's spouse...and many of those folks...
