CAN USCIS DENY MY WORK PERMIT RENEWAL IF I HAVE A DUI BUT THE CASE GOT DISSMISS??
I was arrested for DUI about 2 months ago . but I got a letter on the mail saying that dmv case was set aside then when I went to my DUI court my name didn't appear on the screen and I Asked the clerk to check why then he told that my case was dismiss because the office didn't want to press charges against me or he didn't want to follow up with my case . then my attorney also asked and they told him the same thing what does it mean?? is my record clean? I haven't got anything on the mail and I got pull over for my exahust was too loud but its stock ..but the let me go without a ticket or a warning .
If you were not convicted, then this arrest should not impact the USCIS' decision to grant or deny you any benefits.
Experience w/ Santa Clara County courts and DUI probation violation?
Friend of mine has been incarcerated in San Mateo since Nov (Here is the background http://www.avvo.com/legal-answers/punishment-for-2nd-felony-dui---probation-violatio-2048649.html). We have learned that he will likely be serving a year for the recent felony, which means at half time, he will be out in May-ish (since he already has 4+ months complete) & likely have to go into Bridges program. What is still unknown is how his PV will be treated which is based out of Santa Clara county. I understand SC has 5 days to come get him & then 3 days to give him a hearing. How likely is it that SC will just allow his sentencing from San Mateo ( 1 year jail time + program) be his final punishment vs making him spend jail time in SC for PV? He had 6 mos left on 5yr probation when last DUI happened.
Who knows? Your "friend" should contact the attorney who handled his case in Santa Clara County. If and when they...

Punishment for 2nd Felony DUI & Probation Violation?
A friend of mine is currently incarcerated for his 4th DUI in 10 years, 2006, 2007, 2010, 2014. Technically, it is his 5th, but the first one falls outside the 10-year window (2002). The DUI he received in 2010 was a felony because it was his 4th in 10 years, which makes his most recent a felony as well. He was on probation for the 2010 violation (would have ended July 2015) as well. My question: how much time is he facing? He self-surrendered in November after being on bail for 2 weeks so he could start earning credit toward sentencing. His most recent did not involve injuries (none have, thank goodness). He is involved in an in-jail rehab program, receiving work credit, etc. I am just wondering what possible sentence might be and how probation violation effects it as well. Thank you.
A felony DUI is a wobbler in its penalty. It can be as little as 6 months jail and as much as 3 years state prison....
Do I need to disclose a DUI (Wet and Reckless) in the residency visa application for Germany?
Hello everyone, Thank you for the great job you all are doing on this site. I am a US Citizen that wants to move to Germany for employment purposes. I have a DUI(my first, and hopefully last) which was plead to a Wet and Reckless conviction. I was pulled over on 12/7/2013 and was convicted on 4/29/2014. On the German residency visa application, they have a question: Have you ever been convicted? and ask additional details if the answer is Yes. The question I have is: Do I have to declare Yes to this question? Any and all responses are deeply appreciated. Thanks to all of you in advance. Gr8Bay
Yes. You have a misdemeanor conviction so for immigration purposes you will always have to disclose it if they ask "do...
What should I do now for my dad who is in county jail now charged for bench warrant for DUI? How can I find out the bail amount?
I just found out that my dad has been in the county jail for 7 days now. Called to jail and was told that no release date or court date. Only know he has been charged for bench warrant for DUI. Tried to find out bail amount is but was told to look for a bail bond. But wonder if I can deal with the bail without the help of bail bond agency. Don't know how to approach it. What does it mean by no release date or court date? How do I find out how long he needs to be in jail if without posting a bail? Then what happened next? Should I get a DUI attorney for his case but he has been arrested and been in jail for some time now? What happens to him otherwise? The jail person doesn't have much info to tell and I don't know the best way to approach this. Please advise.
Call the court clerk in the morning and/or the public defender's office in your area. Somebody should know what's...
