    Under WA State Law an individual can be accused of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol or Drugs. In your question you mentioned that the officer stated odor of marijuana and then was arrested for DUI. There are very particular procedures that law enforcement must follow when accusing an individual of DUI, especially if there was a blood test.

To support a modification request, the petitioning parent must show a substantial change in circumstances. If the modification request is within two years of the original custody determination, if this is a WA case where the child has WA...

    Your question written in past tense indicates that you did your community service. Then in the same sentence it is written in futrure tense that a fine is to be paid within 10 years. Going from this limited information it seems that the review hearing could relate to the status on the repayment of fine, as well as other conditions that were in place. It is unclear what the outcome your charge of class c felony- whether it was a conviciton, or a diversion or reduced charge with probation....
