I got a dui November of 2006 which is exactly 6 years and a half ago. My insurance is super expensive. Can I go back to court and get it expunged or dismissed? No DUI's not violation of probation . since then .
First you should try a different insurance company McDonald and breathe
easy in Orange County are great. Expunge ng the DUI from the criminal side
does not clean up your driving record it will still show up on your DMV
report but something is wrong that you still have problems 6 years later
You need to shop around for new insurance. There should be no reason that you are continuing to be dinged for something that happened 7 years ago. Expunging a DUI will not change your DMV record though it would be nice to do for your personal well being if it bothers you. Good luck.
Shop around for cheaper insurance rates. Breathe Easy Insurance in Orange County might be able to point you in the right direction. Many respectable DUI Defense attorneys refer their clients to them.
Most attorneys would suggest clearing your record by filing an expungement petition ($120 filing fee) and serving it (if applicable) to the prosecuting agency. The DUI conviction remains on your DMV record, even if your expungement request is granted, which means that subsequent DUI convictions within 10 years will be enhanced. Granting of the expungement may benefit you with respect to potential employment issues, but there are limited situations when the conviction should be disclosed.
Make an appointment with a reputable attorney to anwer all of your quesitons and possibly assist you with your matter.
I've dealt with this issue a few times. Insurance companies have a point system. After talking with insurance representatives, it seems that smaller insurance companies are more able to provide affordable insurance.
You can file for dismissal or have an attorney do it, and that may help w/ employment or housing issues in the future.
