Almost guaranteed that the adjuster is giving a low settlement offer, however, you have a complex case since it involves two accidents. These are extremely difficult cases from the standpoint that you must be careful on settling one before the other. Once settled, you don't get a second chance and the other adjuster will dispute your claims by blaming it on the other accident.
I'm happy to discuss this further with you if you like. Certainly not a DIY case.
It's unlikely that a judge will deny a plea agreement but it is possible. If he rejects the plea agreement, the terms used in the paperwork become very relevant. In most paperwork I've seen, the state "recommends" a sentence. That, in theory, gives latitude to the judge in imposing his own sentence. An agreement as to the sentencing does not give a judge the same latitude and it is against the rules for a judge to interject himself in plea negotiations.
Sounds like a lot going on. Hiring an attorney is definitely the best thing for you to do. At a minimum, never trust anyone telling you about court dates unless you get it from the clerk's office yourself! That said, go visit the clerk's office or, at least, call them to find out your court schedule. Be sure to go to each clerk's office where you have charges pending. This could mean both General Sessions and Circuit Courts in each county where charges may exist.
Hard to say exactly what the steps would be for a charge this old. To get started, however, I'd contact the clerk's office in the county where you entered a plea to the charge. They should have a file showing you plead with diversion and, if successful, you can ask to have that expunged. I'm not totally certain about the fees for having this done but I think here in Williamson County (at least), it is about $450.,
You may have additional steps to take but the clerk's office is where I'd start.
No telling on the length of the investigation. Could be months. If they pursue a personal injury claim, there is a one year statute of limitation.
As for the lack of insurance, see TCA § 55-12-139

Minimum jail time is prescribed by law so if you plead guilty or are convicted, it's statutory. Courts are sometimes willing to work with the time being served on weekends. Get familiar with the statute I copied below. It appears that you are looking at serving a minimum of 7 days along with a fine just for the DUI.

The answer to your question is fact-dependent. The information below is what is considered in modifying alimony.
• Types that are modifiable:
○ Alimony in futuro
○ Rehabilitative alimony
• Types that are NOT modifiable:
○ Alimony in solido
○ Transitional alimony
§ Unless the judge makes transitional alimony modifiable in the final decree.
§ If called transitional alimony and there is no contingency, it is non-modifiable.
• Must be a substantial and material change in...
There is a lot of variables that factor into this. If it has been a long period of time since you guys split up, the likelihood of you getting what you're looking for is high. Getting child support is probably not a problem unless he simply doesn't have the money and it sounds like he may not. Getting sole custody is much more involved and is VERY fact dependent on your situation. There is no substitute for hiring an attorney for these issues.
So to answer your question succinctly, you'...
You and him may be separated in your eyes but, legally, you're not unless there is a legal separation filed through the court. Depends on your circumstances but it would be hard to come up with a good reason to only get a separation and not a divorce.
As for dating, you must remember you are still married and your position through a divorce proceeding will vary accordingly. It mostly will hinge on whether you qualify for alimony. If you are guilty of adultery or inappropriate marital...
I agree with the previous answers but, in reality, it would be very difficult and time consuming to prove a discrimination claim. I'm not saying dismiss that option but just realize the uphill battle you may be facing.
Your actual question isn't clear but if you're asking what you should do (besides a potential discrimination claim), you should file unemployment and see if you have success there. You may find yourself appealing a denial of benefits but that hurdle is much easier to jump...
