I got in to a little trouble with alcohol in my youth. I got a DUI in college, and two Minor Driving with Liquor in the body when I was a teenager, one as a juvenile. I believe I got caught taking a CD from a store as a juvenile as well. The Navy said they couldn't waive me in. I knew of a guy who got in the Army with a similar circumstance, but that was during the Iraq War, and I was told they don't accept them as easily now. My dad served in the military and was a high ranking officer, and it has been pretty tough on me that I can't serve my country. I don't think I'll be able to be a policeman, or firefighter as well. I just want to know what I can do to serve my country. Can I work for Homeland Security? I want to serve my country somehow. What civil service jobs can I qualify for?
I spoke to a Navy recruiter less than a year ago about the impact of substance abuse crimes on enlistment. He told me...

I was driving down 240 North bound and the drunk driver ricochet's into the railing at the Perkins exits and hits my car on the passenger side. I was riding with a passenger that did not get hurt. I do have full coverage with State Farm. I was taken by the ambulance to BMH ER, where they ran several x-rays and CAT scans (I have no medical insurance). I suffered abrasions and cuts and now have severe pain in certain parts of my body. The narcotics given to me by the doctor aren't really working. I now also suffer from anxiety to drive again. What options do I have? Can I sue the driver? What do I do?
You need to hire an attorney and give notice to State Farm for the wreck. When you are looking at your State Farm...
Is there any way to get court fees reduced or waived after completing all court mandated requirements
I plead guilty to theft of property 500 or less and subsequently got Community Service and Diversion. I completed both of these in conjunction with paying $1100 dollars in reimbursement. I am trying to enter the military and found that the court fee is keeping me seeing as the case itself has been resolved since Feb. 2014 I am joining the military to start a career for quality of life but I am unable to maintain my current now less paying this amount. Any suggestions welcome

I tried to get on the pay as you go plan and they said they don't help with dui fines. If I don't get my license back i will lose my daughter. Her father has taken her away from me and i can't go pick her up because I'm afraid i will get arrested. i have never gone this long without seeing her. I can't get a loan b/c of credit. I have an annuity set up, but I'm not getting my next check until Dec next year. We will be in court before i get the check & cannot wait that long. Her father called CPS on me with his own opinions of my life and has no proof/right to say that i put my daughter in harms way. All i do is for my baby, Everyone that knows me will testify to that in court. He has a long drug related path and is still on probation. I don't know if bankruptcy or debt relief is better.
You have ignored this problem for many years and now seek immediate relief. You need to get an attorney to help you,...
