    Read the questions that are posed by potential employers carefully. Doe the question ask if you have been arrested or convicted? The only real question that should be of significance would be convictions. Bearing that in mind, you don't want your absence of complete information in filling out an application could also be viewed unfavorably.

  2. RE: out of state license and DWI

    You should contact an attorney in both New York and Florida. Depending on each state's licensing and reporting requirements, you may need to comply with certain class requirements in Florida to maintain your driving privilege there. I don't practice in either of these states but, I concur with Mr. Woolsey that the NYS judge doesn't have jurisdiction over your Florida license. Speak with an attorney in Florida who specializes in DUI cases. This will give you the best information.

    Contact an attorney in Kansas who specializes in DUI and licensing issues. They can often appear without you to resolve the hold on your license. California has a procedure that allows a release of a hold if you can prove that do not live there. Kansas may have something similar.

    Your best source for answers to your questions should be directed to an immigration attorney. Although criminal defense and DUI lawyers handle alcohol related matters, green cards, immigration status and naturalization should be discussed with an expert in that area. Contact an immigration specialist in your area for a consultation. You can contact your local bar association for a referral.

    If your boyfriend was represented by an attorney on the underlying case, he should contact them as soon as possible. Depending on the original sentence, or any agreements made at the time of sentencing, there may be serious ramifications violating the court's order. If he was not represented, contact a local attorney well before the court date for advice about how to handle this violation. I would not suggest going to court without appropriate representation.

  7. Can police keep prescription medication for evidence

    You should contact an attorney who practices in your jurisdiction for specifics. If the police seized your medication, and no charges are going to be filed, assuming you have valid prescription for the medication, you may be able to have it returned immediately without the consent of the prosecutor. If the charges are filed, depending on what you are charged with, your attorney, if appropriate, can file a motion to return property. In California, misdemeanor charges must be filed within...

    You should consult with an attorney in your area familiar with the policies of the courts. Generally, most branches of the military have an exclusion for persons currently on active probation. If these charges have the possibility of probation, this can interfere with your acceptance into the army. However, many times, a skilled attorney can work out a resolution for you that doesn't include probation or just a brief period of probation until all requirements of the case are completed. Call...

  9. Can I get a DUI fee forgiven or ruduced?

    I would contact your local Public Defender's office. In California, they can represent you at no cost, if you meet their criteria. They should know a way to convert the fine into either jail time or volunteer work, especially if you are entering the military.

    Depending on the laws of your state, with an attorney to assist you, the charges may be reduced or even dismissed. This is not one of those things that you should just seek to "get done". You should consult more than one attorney before you determine that you can't afford an attorney. Many attorneys have payment plans, It is certainly in your best interest to have an qualified advocate in your corner.
