    The court is required to order you to attend and complete the Mississippi Alcohol Safety Education Program. This class is required in the state of Mississippi to get your driving privileges reinstated. If you are unable to attend one of the many classes offered in Mississippi, you need to call the program at 1.800. 678.2534 and inform them of your location and they will provide you with the closest acceptable substitute class.

    I agree with the previous answer provided and would add the following. Every agency is different as to the timing it takes from being arrest to the time it actually shows up on any background report. Also, all background reports turn up different results. Depending on what company is used for the report determines how much information is provided to the employer. Based upon the information provided, there is only two to three days from arrest to background check; therefore, it may not be...

    Short answers: it depends. Since your license was issued by the state of Mississippi, you will have to contact the DMV to determine why they are suspended. They will likely be able to tell you exactly who (county, city, etc.) has an administrative suspension and why (failure to appear, failure to pay, etc.). Once you determine these facts, you will have to clear each of them with the respective agency. The agency will present you with a letter of clearance that can be taken to the DMV for...

    A paralegal cannot practice law, their main focus is to assist a licensed attorney in their legal work. A paralegal may know what needs to be done and explain your legal options and how to do it based upon their past experience; however, they are not legally permitted to give legal advice nor appear on your behalf. Further, based upon the question, if this is the advice you received from the paralegal, it is a prime example as to why they are not licensed to practice law. The motions you...
