Sole - not likely unless compelling reason to do so. Supervised, perhaps. is there a history of alcohol abuse.
I have a "business only" driving permit due to refusing a breathalyzer in Florida. I have not been to court yet to face the DUI charge but want to know if there are any states that will issue me a similar license for the remaining time on my one year suspension if I were to move to take another job, or if NOT convicted, will issue me a new license without any penalty?
The best and only answer to your question is that it is state specific. You will need to call the mandatory actions...
thank you
Assuming you were convicted of the DUI 20 years ago, you cannot seal or expunge it from your record.
we are willing to help daughter move to FL with her 2 children and live with us. She has no license (suspended), no job because no transportation, no income, ex husband also jobless and is here in FL. Is it likely her probation officer will let her move?

I have never been arrested before and only have a ticket for speeding in 2007 and the Careless Driving in 2011. I was given the extra requirements of attending weekly AA meetings and submitting to random UA's during probation and I'm guessing it's because of the "priors" that I have?

My fiancé and I moved into a new apartment about a month ago. The complex had advertised a move in special on their website that said: "Move in by August 15th and recieve your second month free." There was no other fine print on the page ANYWHERE saying "for tenants who qualify" or anything.

When we got our copies of the already signed lease, all the sudden we saw that they had hand written that we weren't getting the special bc of the background check. When we try to plead our case or describe how the promo was falsely advertised, the manager gets very rude. This situation seems shady & I feel like we are being cheated without a VALID reason. Is there anything we can do about this?
This is NOT a criminal defense question; It is either a "landlord-tenant" or a "real estate" question. If you want...
My ex was arrested in January 2014 for a 2nd DUI and quit his job, he has a wealthy family who "take care" of all of his financial responsibilities since his arrest there fore my ex will not look for work. The children have been doing with out medical coverage, child support, etc. The children have also stopped exercising 50/50 time share because my ex cannot transport them to school, activities, etc. I now drive them everywhere and pay for everything. I have shown kindness and patience since his arrest but the excuses as to why he is not getting any job possible have worn me down. Is there anything I can do at all? Enforcement? Contempt? Modification?
Yes..you can do many things and it all starts with your Final Judgment. If he is not working and living off of his...
