I got arrested for a duii when I was 23 I'm now 30 I want to try and get my license back but I think this duii is holding me back. What do I do if I have a warrant in the city where I got the duii but not in my home state? I just want to clear this mess and get my life back after my younger mistakes.
You need to figure out what the court where you dui case is still pending wants you to do to resolve that case.
Once you are done with the court, you need to figure out what you need to do to be able to obtain a valid driver's license in that state where your dui case is.
Once you have resolved your issues with the driver's licensing agency of that state, you need to figure out what you need to do to obtain a valid driver's license in the state where you are living now.
Most states are members of the interstate compact on driver's licensing. A suspension on in member state is supposed to result in a suspension in all member states.
You can contact attorneys close to where the dui case is to check with them what the court wants you to do.
You will have to appear in the court where the warrant is. An attorney help you execute a plan with the goal of minimizing the impact on your life and resolving all the issues in one appearance.
DUIs are treated very seriously. This will never just go away. The sooner and more directly you deal with this the better the outcome will be.
