I recently got an OWI in Wisconsin, but I am licensed and live in Michigan. I received a letter from WI DMV stating that my license is to be suspended for 6 months. Does this apply to my license in Michigan? And if so, how will I know when and for how long it will be suspended for here? I know I can fulfill all probationary requirements in Michigan, but I didn't know what would happen to my license since the suspension is not issued through the state in which I reside and have a license in. I have not been to court yet for this matter.
Chances are Wi will report the OWI to MI, since you are a MI licnesee. Mi will treat it as if the OWI occurred there. So whatever a MI licensee would get if the OWI occurred in MI is what you will get.
I would suggest contacting the Michigan's Secretary of State office in your area to find out how they will treat OWI. Also, you should also contact a criminal defense attorney to help you in the pending criminal matter.
