I was convicted awhile back of a DUI in CA. I never had a CA drivers lic. just my valid lic. in another state. I am moving back to my home state and curious what I am going to have to do to take car of this. I was never given a CA drivers lic. number so how would my home state know and if they did what would they do about it? What would I have to do in CA before I moved home.
California will report the conviction of the DUI to your home state's DMV under the interstate compact. You should talk...

You have a chance of avoiding jail time. You should definitely hire a competent lawyer.
in 2005 I was arrested for a DUI in TN with a VA licence. I lost my licence, and had to go to court. I have just moved from TN to California, and when I applied to get my licence changed over, California sent a letter saying I lost my licence due to 2005 DUI. I showed them the arrest record showing my VA D/L number, but they said they need my complete driving record from VA. VA DMV have told me their records only go back 7 years to 2007 and they cannot retrieve 2005 records. CA have told me if I can't retrieve VA DMV records from 2005 I must lose my licence again! I need my licence as I travel a lot and also am required to drive for my work - What can I do?
I'm sorry to hear about this. The CA DMV is a monster indeed. What can you do? Try to give them what they want. Get...
I have agreed to pay my DUI attorney $300 a month but unfortunately my financial situation has changed and can no longer afford that amount. At this point I still owe $1,500 and can currently only afford to pay $50 per month. My attorney will not accept this amount as I should have had this paid off 4 months ago. He is now saying this could go to arbitration, is this something I should agree to? Do I have a choice? Is there anyway I can fight this? could I go to jail? How does this effect my record? What are my options? Does the fact that I am a military wife and am responsible for all house hold finances while my husband is in school full time help my case? Thank you!

I pled to my 2nd DUI. The public defender was able to get a good offer. I am being separated from the Marines and I will be moving home to Oregon in 60 days. When can I get a restricted license in Oregon? The Public Defender did not have that information. I called Oregon and they told me I have to finish my California suspension before I can get a license. They said I was not even able to get restricted. Is this right? I cannot finish the 18 month course in California once I am out of the service. Can I get a restricted? What do I do?
Posting this question in the Oregon DWI/DUI section may be a better bet as an Oregon Attorney will be able to give you...
