I had a dui last November. I am now being sued for restitution, 10,000 dollars, and have no property or money. What can I do?
I had a dui last November. No one was injured, and my car insurance paid off the damages to other cars. Now a year later I am being called back into court for restitution, the person who is suing me was one of the owners of the car I hit. It is for 10,000 dollars. I am on welfare and food stamps, have no bank account and no property. I have been doing the community service and dui school. I have been doing everything right since this happened. What am I looking at as far as going to court and telling them I have no money?
Normally in these cases they go after your insurance. Usually your liability is indemnified through your insurance...
Is it worth my getting a lawyer for my vehicle accident caused by a drunk driver?
Our minivan was broadsided on the driver's side by an oncoming pickup truck driven by a drunk driver. The impact shattered all the windows on that side and all the side curtain air bags deployed. My husband suffered some injury to his neck and shoulder and he was transported to the ER soon after the accident. My son who was sitting on the side the truck hit also has pain in his neck and soreness in his arms and pain in his ear and temple which wasn't immediate until the following day. Our van has been determined to be at a total loss by our insurance adjuster. It was just paid off in December and was in excellent condition and very low mileage.
Absolutely, you have a slam dunk PI case. I suggest contacting an ecperienced PI attorney.
How shall i cancel my supervise probation? Should i go back to jail and serve more time instead of 3 years probation? Any Chance
I have supervised probation for 3 years and i can't even go out of states for work. I tried last time with PO and he didn't let me go to east coast for my job. My job needs to travel nationwide. So how shall i do? Let my job lose because of probation? Is there any way and chance to terminate my probation? This is my first crime and very little one. Should i request for more jail time to terminate probation right away. I just want to keep my job and free to go anywhere in US. Otherwise, i have no way to pay the restitution fees of $5000 dollar. I just want to finish this up soon!I already served my jail time at the county jail for 6 months. Just probation made me so annoy for my job!

Will I get a Probation Violation for an incident that occurred before getting put on probation?
I'm on formal probation about to be put on court probation (no supervision). My question is will I be violated for an incident that occurred 4 months before I was put on probation? I just got a letter today from the court in regard to VC 23152 a, VC 20002 a, HS 11375 B 2 that occurred in may of 2009. Since this incident is unrelated and happened before I was put on probation will there be any violations? Thanks
An incident that occurred before you were put on probation is not a violation of probation but a conviction for it can be.
