If you have a Court date, Im guessing you are charged with a crime. It seems as though the crux of your question is can...
In 1998, I was arrested for DUI. I was convicted, and ordered to pay a fine and complete a driver education course. I paid the fine, but was unable to complete the course as I had moved to California. I received a notice recently from the CA DMV informing me that my CA driver's license would be suspended, because CT had reported me to the PDPS. I called the CT DMV and they told me that the court in Manchester, CT had issued the suspension. The clerk told me that the judge had issued a bench warrant in 2000 for failing to complete the course, which was vacated in 2005 and converted to a license suspension. The clerk told me that an in-person appearance was mandatory, and would not tell me what sort of fines and penalties I would have to pay. Do I have to appear, and what am I looking at?
You should contact a local attorney in the area to see if that attorney can appear for you and instead of you!
My insurance was ANTHEM, After I became disabled due to an under insured drunk driver, suddenly my primary insurance changed to MEDICARE. The attorney got his $33,333.33 and now I owe an additional $8,000.00 on top of the $63,000.00 I received for my new bionic neck. WHY IS THAT FAIR? Had I known I was filing a lawsuit, just for the attorney to profit, I would have done nothing. It really seems stupid that the attorneys fee is not diminished since I am now in the red. He NEVER told me this was going to happen. Does he not have a duty to tell me this from the beginning?
I assume you signed a fee agreement with the attorney. If the fee agreement provided attorney fees of 1/3, and he...

I was arrested for a DUI in October of 2013. My license is still suspended because I do not have a car and can't afford the fees at the moment. I'm moving from CT to NC. Can I apply for a new license in NC or do I need to pay restoration in CT before I can get a license anywhere else even though I don't own a car?
DMVs provide information to each other. If you have a suspension in one state, other states are likely to not give you...
Been here for many years on expired visa. Been married for many years. I know that i could apply for I-130 and I485. My concern here is I was pulled over after my visa was expired for a DUI twice, and also numerous times with driving without a license. For these events I had to pay tickets. This may be due to the fact that i was here illegally and never able to go to court. Being that i was fined for these events will they interfere with me obtaining a green card? any other concerns from a situation like this? risk for being denied green card and facing deportation?
Meet with an immigration lawyer and file for a green card- those things don't make you ineligible, unless there are...
