We have never been married but were together for a short time. I have let him see our son plenty of times but only a few by himself because he has threatened to take off with our son. Now he is taking me too court to fight me for custody. He has 4 DUI's and is now a felon. If he gets caught driving again without a license he goes to jail. Please help.
You need a good lawyer fighting for your custodial rights. The felony drunk driving convictions are relevant and will...
i received dui 7-25-13 and had 2 convictions ( both treated as 2nds) 10-2000 and 1 in 1996 making 4 total but only 1 in last 12.5 years will this be treated as 1st?
Regardless of the look back period (10 years normally) your characterization of treating it as a first offense needs to...
I was convicted of DUI and served seven days in jail and had my drivers lic. supended. This was my second arrest for DUI. The first was reduced to reckless driving.

I'm from Illinois and I received an OWI for marijuana in Iowa. I'm just trying to keep my career from being jeopardized by this. Are there any plea agreement opinions besides OWI prosecutors are willing to accept to prevent reporting a DUI to Illinois? I can not lose my license due to a suspension right now!!!

I was arrested while on a friend's vacation at a bar in Dickinson County Iowa. I spent the night in jail and couldn't see the judge until the next morning. Being on vacation I didn't have the money to get bailed out at the time and I just wanted to leave; so I plead guilty and was let go and just had to pay a $350 fine for each charge (Public Intoxication and for having a fake ID) at a later date. I paid them both and they are both on my record now. This occurred a little over two years ago when I was 19 and I am currently 22. I am wondering if there is any possible way to get either of these charges removed from my record, and if there is how would I go about it? Like I said the arrest occurred in Iowa and I am from Missouri so I'm not really sure how I would go about this.
I'm not an Iowa attorney but I'd be surprised if you're not out of time to appeal. Most states have strict time limits...
Stuck inside, bored so I thought I'd ask.. My employer hired a cleaning company to clean and wax the floor. They had been drinking, because my employee told me, after the fact, when the cleaner came through her line and bought something, she could smell alcohol on his breath. She thought I knew it. This happened overnight, and I was the only employee there. They spilled soapy water all over, the employee was upset he couldn't buy cigarettes. He was yelling, we can't get any f'n cig's. I picked up my pace to head to the back room, as I am looking over my shoulder, to see where he was, I slipped on the floor and tearing rotator cuff and cartilage in my knee. They were working 18 ft away from where I fell, so that hall shouldn't of been wet Can I sue the company they work for?
