  • I was charged with a DUI in the US but I am a Canadian citizen. Does that affect my drivers license in Canada or just the US?

    I was arrested in Washington, went to jail, blew over and had my car impounded and have a court meeting tomorrow. What am I looking at ? Does the DUI follow me to Canada?

    Greg’s Answer

    I am not licensed in Canada, so out of respect to any experienced attorney licensed there who answers your question, I would defer to that answer. However, my answer is that Canada will know about your being on probation and the conviction. I know this because I have had over 20 clients in 17 years who have suffered DUI's in CA who then run into problems in Canada due to business there. They often cannot rent a car there. I wrote a short article on this aspect of the issue, which is attached by the link below.

    The answer is probably not, but you can retain an attorney to write a letter to try. The fees associated with retaining an attorney, however, may exceed the amount you are trying to recover, so it may not be practical.

    For right now, I would contact a local attorney just as Jay Finnecy who is experienced in handling such cases and may be able to tell you what to expect for the San Marcos area. You may receive a letter from the Vista Court notifying you a criminal case has been filed against you or nothing may happen. You are, however, most likely banned from all Walmarts for a few years.

    I am not licensed to practice law in Nebraska, so out of respect for any experienced attorney licensed there who answers, I would defer to that answer. My answer is there is no such average figure, or if there really is, it many not be meaningful for you without being assured that your case facts can rely upon averages. If you were to become an informant, think twice about this. I have seen it go badly several times. Since I have seen this problem arise, I wrote an article about your situation.
