Back in 2015 I was charged with two owvi(operating while visually impaired) charges after the first I only received a restricted license. They revoked it after the second and I was sentenced to probation. I have paid all fines and drivers responsibility fees. My license was originally eligible for review sometime in December of 2016, I had not done the packet or paperwork to send in for a hearing and ended up getting pulled over and charged with driving on a revoked like March of 2017. Up until today I have had no other incidences. My license has been eligible since may of 2018 and while I know it is entirely my fault for not going for this sooner life happened. I received a ticket today for driving on a revoked. I need to know my options this is like a vicious circle I am now 26 with four kids, twins on the way. I’m married, I have a job but I don’t know what my options are.
Yours is not a question having to do with immigration law. I have switched the category for you.
If my answer is the "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL" please mark it accordingly. Fluent in 7 languages. Certified Specialist in U.S. Immigration & Nationality Law, The State Bar of California, Board Of Legal Specialization. 26 years of successful immigration law experience. The answer above is only general in nature and cannot be construed as legal advice, given that not enough facts are known. It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.
You need to get on board with an attorney both skilled in criminal law and license restoration. Maybe applying for your license renewal might help with your new charge. Use avvo to help find local counsel.
My answer to you question does not constitute legal advice. Only an in person or telephone consultation will result in an attorney/client relationship. Please do not rely on brief answers without checking with an attorney in a confidential consultation.
You need to immediately contact an attorney who handles cases in the area where the new Driving While Revoked incident happened, who is very knowledgeable in handling misdemeanor traffic charges, but who also is an expert on Driver's License Restorations. There is a chance that the new charge, if handled well, would not affect your ability to go to a hearing for the license restoration. But if any type of moving violation goes onto your driving record from this new incident, you will be ineligible for a hearing for a minimum of one year. If you were to go to a hearing before this new incident is resolved, you would have to acknowledge, when asked, under oath, that that charge was pending. That alone would be cause for denial of any relief by the Secretary of State Office of Hearings and Administrative Oversight. When you do get to the point of trying to get back your license, do not try to do it by yourself! It is far to detailed a process to attempt to do without an experienced attorney's help. If you lose, you almost always will have to wait a year to even try again. Get an attorney's help now! Sincerely, Frank B. ,Ford
