    This is not a simple question. There are a number of factors in play: your reported BAC, whether you complied with express consent, your age, and more. The important thing in the immediate term is to make sure you set up a hearing with the DMV. It would be a good idea to contact a DUI attorney to go over the facts in your case, because there is a possibility of not losing your license at all depending on what your case looks like. For more general information, you can always look at the DMV'...

    You will need to ask for and get the go ahead from your probation officer and permission from the court. Also the state of Texas will have to accept you into their probation program. This is not a sure thing, but it happens with some regularity. If you are on unsupervised probation, you will need to address your move with the court only. It is not true that anyone has to agree to transfer your probation down to Texas if you get a job down there, but having already secured employment will...

    If you are writing the letter on behalf of a friend or relative who is represented, you should give it to his or her attorney. The attorney will want to review it to help the over all crafting of the argument or sentence and put it in at the right time to have the greatest effect. If the person is not represented currently, you should wait until he or she gets an attorney, and they should as quickly as possible because these are serious charges.

  4. Charged with fraud and record was not expunged!

    From your limited information, it's not entirely clear what your question is. Nor is it clear you would be eligible for expungement. What I can say about expungement is that its going to depend on when your case was initiated, how it was resolved and what has happened in the meantime. Cases in Colorado that are eligible to be expunged are crimes that were committed as juveniles and require that a certain amount of time has passed and that no convictions have occurred in the meantime....

    It would appear that you've already violated the Restraining Order by going together to get the marriage license, as that contact had nothing to do with custody of your son. If you get married during this process, you will violate the restraining order a second time. You definitely should wait until after the order has been modified. You will spend the rest of your lives together, there is no need to complicate your wedding plans. Also, you should be extremely careful about sharing details...

    Well you certainly could do this on your own, It's always safest to hire a lawyer to help you. Doing it on your own, you'll need to check with the county in which you dealt with the case. Once you have the Case number, you can begin to work off of the Supreme Court's website. This will require some effort on your part, including opening up a new civil case and arranging for hearing before a district court judge. You would not need the help of your original attorney.

    Undoubtedly this will have some impact on DORA's decision of your renewal. The only thing that you can do is be honest on you answers. It may help to have an attorney to help you craft an appropriate response if DORA has any questions.

    Generally speaking, what ends up showing on a criminal history is not convictions necessarily, but often arrests. Once a person is arrested, a number of outcomes are possible, and many times they do not lead to convictions. A commercial search will often hit on these arrests. What you must do to prevent this from happening is to "seal" your file. This processes involves opening another civil case to ask a court to order all the criminal justice files to be sealed from the public. If you...

    I am assuming that because you posted in the Vail, CO location this is where you were cited for DUI. If so, there is almost certainly a bench warrant for you which may complicate your arrival at the airport. You can confirm this by either calling the Eagle County court clerk's office or the sheriff's office or by having someone else do this on your behalf. You should certainly get an attorney to begin working on your arrival and see if you can get the warrant quashed and another court date...

    It is not up to the District Attorney to decide if a hearing will be continued (although it helps a great deal if he or she does not object), that is up to the judge to decide. The only way that a party can get their presence waived or a hearing continued is with permission from the court. The court won't spontaneously decide to do those things without a motion from the party stating the reasons for the need to continue. If someone is running out of time to get a court to make a ruling, they...
