Call the city or suburb that gave you the tickets. Each one has different rules and some may accept a down payment with a payment plan. But each locality has different policies. Only after the hold is lifted by the city will the SOS permit you to dive. It is not possible to obtain a permit from the SOS unless the city lifts the hold and notifies the SOS .
I am a DUI attorney that practices primarily in Lake County and our office is directly across the street from the courthouse. If you would like to discuss your case in more detail call my office at (847) 336-91111 David Winer. www.Winerlawoffice.com
It all depends what classification your are given by the alcohol evaluator. The possible hours for DUI classes are either 10, 20, 30 or 75 hours. If you are told by the evaluator to complete the lower amount of hours, you can get it done in 3 monhts. I highly suggest that you get moving asap, as failure to do so may result in you being petitioned back to court and being resentenced.
It may show up if the agency or court that issued the wararnt puts it on the "LEADS" computer, which is a nationwide warrant data system. I would not take a chance, so hire an attorney to get it cleared up.
If there is an outstanding warrant then the police will arrest you. After the arrest a new court date will be set and you will either be held in custody or post the bond to get out. I suggest getting an attorney to clear it up.
Upon a conviction for DUI your license is revoked forever, However you can petition the SOS for a Formal or Informal hearing to obtain a Restricted Driving Permit. The type of hearing depends on how many other DUI's you have on your driving record. I would call an attorney that is very familair with SOS law to assist you for the hearing at the SOS Office.
If you attorney can get you a reckelss driving, your license should not get revoked although you will have the Summary Suspension to deal with As for the BAIID, you can get one without the SOS knowing if it is part of a plea agreeement. You must contact the BAIID companys to have it privately installed and send their complaince reports to the court instead of the SOS.
There are two possible reasons. One, that the case is now being charges in Federal court by the U.S. Attorneys office. In larger drug cases that deal with cross-state border allegations the federal prosecutor can have jurisdiction to prosecute and the penalties in Federal court are more severe that state court. . The other reason, is that there is an INS hold and he was taken to the INS holding facility for deportation proceedings. The info yo provided is too vague to know which one it is....
I suggest that you contact an attorney to file a petition to appear in court and ask the Judge for an extension to pay. If the Judge knows your financial situation and that you are acting in good faith he may likely give you more time. i have done this several times with success. I would make sure that all your other conditions of the Court Order are completed.
