During the pedent lite hearing, we were told not to get rid of any assets. I recently learned that my husband told our 17 year old that he was giving his vehicle to him and that when he got his license he could get it. My husband bought another work vehicle after. 1) If my husband has problems, accidents, or tickets while the vehicle is in our son's name, will it become a problem for our son? 2) Was it lawful for my husband to change the title over to our son after the judge said not to get rid of any assets?
1) Yes. If your son allows his father to use the vehicle knowing that his father is unlicensed, he could be liable for...

I was stopped and arrested for DWI and Refusal in Virginia(Both 1st Offenses). I also received a PBJ judgment from Maryland for DUI(1st Offense) at the beginning of this year. What types of penalties could I face from these two charges and the possible probation violation charge? My residence state is in Maryland.
Virginia is not Maryland. If you went it alone in MD and think you may be able to do that here, you are in for a bad...
I was in a driveway in a mobile home park in a stranger's driveway. I found out I was at wrong home when I was attempting to visit a friend. He lived 2-houses up. I knocked on front door & no one answered. I thought he was still at work. I decided to wait for him in car. I went to sleep & next thing I knew the Police was shining a light in my face. The ignition keys were not in the switch when they came. I was arrested & released the next morning on recognized bond.
If the government can prove that you operated a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs then...
Dmv is not asking for it in order to obtain my license. I'm going to petition Circuit Court for full restoration of driving privileges being I'm an habitual offender. One DUI, several driving on suspended, thousands in fines, just want to be prepared for court and finally be legal after 20 years.
With a question about a record so long and complicated, you really need to take your record and sit down for a face to...

I have a suspended license due to having a dui, and was pulled over but the officer gave me a speeding ticket and a 46.2-300 (driving without ol) can the commonwealth upgrade that to 46.2-301? The officer even let me drive away after that. I cant afford a lawyer and my court date is the 2/5/2015. What steps should I take? I know all of you will tell me to get an attorney, but im looking for advice here. Thanks in advance
Yes, the law allows the Commonwealth and/or the police officer to amend the charge. They could also go with 18.2-272,...
