I had my last name changed recently and I have 2 DWI's (6 & 7 years ago). Will they show up on my record for the military?
I had my name changed to my fathers last name in the last year. I want to join either the marines or the army. With that said, I'm afraid that these are going to hold me back. The real ? is "Do I have to even put that these were on my record"? I'm wondering this because in some articles, I've read that after 5 years... it doesn't show up on one's criminal record anymore. I don't know if this is true or not. I don't want to lie about anything, but if I don't have to say anything, I would certainly like to not say anything. Please... Help me come to a conclusion with this ? Thank you so much whomever reads this.
In my experiences the armed forces and other government entities do a very extensive background check. If they ask...
Inquiry for help with license denial. My husband received 2 DWIs over 10 years ago in Arkansas. In 2013 he received a third.
All three were received while living in Arkansas. He has completed all necessary steps and been re-instated his license back in that state. However, we moved recently to Missouri (he owns and operates a business here) and was issued a 10 year denial for a drivers license in the state of MO. His job requires a lot of time driving back and forth to visit with clients and to conduct his business. We are in process of getting the first 2 expunged but AR law allows the decision to seal very up in the air, depending on what judge/prosecutor you draw for the case. If these are ruled to not be expunged how will my husband be legal to drive. His AR license is legal for another 4 years but upon renewal I worry it will be denied because of the MO hold on the National Drivers Register.
He may be eligible for a limited driving privilege. These rules just changed in March of this year. He will be required...

Requesting court appointed attorney before first DUI hearing?
Are you allowed to request a court appointed attorney before your first hearing by calling the courthouse? Or are you supposed to show up to court that day and then request one from the judge? I'm in a financial slump and hiring a private lawyer would be hard on my other obligations.
This depends on the jurisdiction you are in. You should call your local Bar Association (as in Attorney Bar...
Does a misdemeanor dui from 12 years ago have a statute of limitations
the party hasn't renewed their driver's license since this incident and hasn't been in any kind of criminal trouble during this time nor has this person received any further traffic violations during this time period. this person wasn't able to afford to comply with all of the requirements the judge ordered for this dui charge either because of financial hardship
You may want to rephrase your question. The statute of limitations is not in issue here if the person already plead...
