I was pulled over in November. The officer said he smelled alcohol and asked for a field sobriety test but I refused. He then placed me under aresst ? I was charged with dui and failure to maintain lane. What are my chances or options?

DUI REFUSAL - After my plea entry of Not Guilty, my court date could be some time out. Should I wait until AFTER my jury trail to request the refund or is their a Statue of Limitations for ALS hearings?
What type of refund are you talking about? Are you wanting a refund from your lawyer, your bondsman or what?
I am the primary, physical custodian of my 2 children, ages 11 and 12. My ex husband has court ordered visitation 2 wknds/month. Over the past few months I have noticed both my kids saying they don't want to spend the wknd with their dad. Recently, they tell me he is constantly drinking alcohol around them, stumbling, talking strange and vomiting, etc. The kids also tell me they were made to ride in his car while he was driving drunk. With this information being relayed per my 2 kids, how do I protect them? I have no proof that any of this took place. My ex has a long history of alcoholism, but of course, I can't prove that either. Please advise.

The driver turned left in front of me when I had the green light and I T-boned her. She was injured and charged with the accident. My young daughter had a bad bump on the head and my son and I weren't injured. Just shaken up. The insurance adjuster pushed to settle quickly which I thought was fine since I needed the money quickly to buy a new car since mine was totaled. I found out over a year later that the other driver was intoxicated and was charged and settled in court. The insurance adjuster did not tell me this and I had no idea until 1.5 years later. Is there anything I can do?
No; this is an unfortunate lesson. Always speak with an attorney. There is a reason we offer free consultations. Sorry.

I also had three for a felony conviction over 15 yrs ago in Texas which I served 11 months. Texas never used the dui's in Georgia against me back then, and consequently GA never used the ones in Texas against me either. My bond for this recent dui was rather small only $1200 so a bail bondsman got the release for me for 10%..I have maintained a clean record for the last 15 yrs and its been 17 yrs since my 2nd dui in GA. I have a total of 5 priors in two different states that were over 15 yrs ago I am sure things have changed since then with the laws so.... I am scared...
