    In California, many felony convictions can be expunged. If you were granted probation, rather than sent to state prison, your felony conviction can and should be expungeable so long as you have successfully completed all of the terms of your probation. Although successful completion of all terms of one’s probation is a requirement, the law provides judges the discretion to expunge convictions where probation was violated but then later successfully completed.

    It is difficult to answer the questions without seeing the drivers license. But generally the answer is NO. In california after establishing residency, you must get a california drivers license. Being deported is almost an impossibility. But a lawyer would greatly help because, a lawyer may be able to get an infraction for your case. you may call me. 310-200-9651

    Yes you can go back to court before your surrender date to ask the judge on your newest case to have the jail time run consecutive to the time you owe on your other case. You don't want to get released and then go back to serve more time, you will lose the opportunity for good time, work time. You may need a lawyer to help you.

  7. Father of my children got charged for Domestic violence while on DUI probation. What could be facing?

    He will be facing a new domestic violence charge and certainly a probation violation for his old DUI. Part of being on probation is agreeing to obey all laws, and getting arrested for domestic violence will violate that agreement. Also you may take him back to family court to get more custody time to show that he may be a danger to your children.

    Once you have received a letter that says a case or complaint has been filed against you, this means you will be in front of a judge to answer the complaint. There no longer is a possibility for a dismissal prior to the arraignment. A private criminal defense attorney can do a lot in domestic violence cases. There are a lot of defenses and the outcome can matter greatly on the effort and experience your attorney puts into the case. feel free to call me for a free consultation at (310)395-...

    Appearing in front of a judge with three different warrants, without an attorney is a bad idea. The seriousness of your situation does depend on the reason for why your license was suspended in the first place. If you have a DUI which resulted in your license from being suspended, you are very likely to serve some jail time. If not, it is possible due to your pregnancy that jail time may be avoided. Either way, you will need an attorney to negotiate for you in court. You may reach me at (...
