I was wondering how long it typically takes for an Illinois summary suspension notice to get mailed to your house after an arrest for DUI? And if you don't receive it, how can you check the status with "waking a sleeping dog" sort of speak. Thank ...
Usually within 3-4 weeks, but it can take longer. You can check without waking the dog by calling the Secretary of State and using the automated option. 217-782-6212.See question

So my daughter was arrested for possession of canabis less then 30grams. Her first offense. She went to court and cannot afford a lawyer and wants a public defender. The judge told her no. Because she lives with her parents and is not in poverty. ...
It is up to the judge to determine whether someone is eligible for the public defender. The person has to be indigent. The courts usually use the poverty line as a guideline. Your daughter should contact some attorneys. Different attorneys charge different fees, so you might want to call a few.See question
i was speeding 15 over and was pulled over by the police. i was arrested and taken to the police department to be processed and was released a half hour later with dui, speeding, having empty containers and expired plates.
I agree with the other attorneys. A first offense misdemeanor DUI is punishable by up to 365 days in jail and/or a fine of up to $2,500. In certain instances, even a first offense DUI can be upgraded to felony aggravated DUI, in which case prison time is possible. There is also a license suspension of six or twelve months depending on the facts of your case. You need to retain an attorney.See question
The regrettable situation occurred in dec 14, case is closed. I just want to know if I would have issues with immigration. First time DUI and speeding above 35. DUI got reduced to Court supervision. Unfortunately, guilt of Speeding. Please advice
Under the current laws, probably this will not be a problem, so long as you report it during the immigration process. You should consult with an immigration attorney to discuss this further.See question

You are making the right decision to retain an attorney to represent you with this. It is not easy to obtain reinstatement by yourself. You should meed with an attorney to review your driving history, drinking history, alcohol evaluation and treatment. Then the attorney will be able to give you a better idea of your prospects. Assuming that at least two of your DUIs were convictions, you will be required to have a permit first before you are eligible for full reinstatement.See question
