    I doubt you will be able to recover any money. The government has a lot of protections and immunity from being sued.

    This is something that would be irresponsible to answer without having your file, case documents and all the facts. Other than that, it is guessing advice for you.

    Okorie’s Answer

    It would be borderline malpractice and 100% irresponsible for an attorney to tell you conclusively without the case file and the letter. I would be willing to look at your documents for free.

    Okorie’s Answer

    You do not need anyone's consent to get a divorce in California. Because of the unrelated issues of your wife being out of the country, I highly recommend using a lawyer.

  • Thanks Joseph and Brian. If no conviction after 4 mo. do I still need to attend DUI school to get my license back?

    In other words, assuming I have not been filed on after my four month suspension, I get the SR22, and pay the fines; can I get my DL back? I'm trying to avoid the DUI school if it isn't necessary.

    Okorie’s Answer

    The DUI school is not that bad and if you are ever convicted, having completed it discourages judges from giving you another alcohol class that is far worse. There are so many others that are far worse that I would do it just to be safe.
