  • Driving license expired on November, no SSN or proof of legal presence. What are the options/changes to have it reviewed?

    out of status for about 2 years.

    Mani’s Answer

    Find a criminal attorney familiar with immigration law, they can have the charge of driving while license suspended reduced to one that will not abstract on your driving record. This is the best way to fly under the radar, but not a guarantee that ice wont find you in the future. I know a few good criminal lawyers in your area and would be happy to point you in the right direction.
