My brother was convicted of a class c misdemeanor dui a while ago and has almost completed his probation. Just the other day he was pulled over and was told that his license is suspended for a few years. He says that he was unaware of the suspension, and now he has to go back to court. What kind of consequences could he be facing, and is there anything he can do to avoid further legal trouble since he didn't know about the suspension?

I'm am taking a DUI plea in Illinois for a DUI charge I received recently. I need to get an alcohol and drug evaluation for the court to accept the plea.

Can someone point me in the right direction?

I am an Indiana Resident, have two DUI convictions (last conviction in 2009) in Indiana, and an Illinois license. My license was revoked for 5 years and I will not be eligible for a full reinstatement until late 2015. I can get a hardship in Illinois at this time if I were to apply for one. However, I want to move to Texas for a job, sometime in early 2015. Is it possible at this time to fill out an out-of-state packet, submit it to the Illinois Secretary of State, have the revocation hold removed, move to Texas, and then apply for a hardship in Texas? From my understanding, I cannot get a hardship license in Texas until the revocation hold is lifted in Illinois. Is this possible?
As a non resident of Illinois you can apply for clearance of the Illinois hold only after you are eligible for...

Basically I spontaneously went to the justice of the peace with a man that I believed wanted to be married. At the time he was intoxicated. Since that time we have really not been able to communicate in an appropriate manner. When sober he says he does not want to be married anymore. I have filed a petition for an annulment pro se. I need advice on what to do now to get this process done and over with
Whether you are entitled to an annulment is far from clear. Every state defines grounds for such relief, and marrying...
I was told to fill out application for criminal rehabilitation, but when reading info it states that I can not be rehabilitated for 5 years. Does this mean I can not enter Canada for 5 years after conviction, or is there a way to be able to enter Canada?
