4th dui in FL resulted in lifetime DL revocation, I now live in NY, can I get a release from FL and get a NY DL?
last dui in 1998, have not driven since...priors dui in MD '95, in NY 1983 and 1981. None were felony charges. I was going to go into a program in FL to get hardship DL back, but since moved to NY permanently, Is there a way to get Florida to release my revocation, or at least change my NDR? I plan never to drive in FL again. I heard of this being done, but unsure how to go about starting this procedure. Can I do this with a lawyers help in NY or do I have to go back to FL to get this done?
You start in FL. A NY DMV will honor what the record is in FL
Repeat DWI laws NY... I am devastated
History: one Zero Tolerance at the age of 20 (half a beer and cold medicine, pulled over by camped cop on college campus, blew .04), 1 DWI in NJ at the age of 27, and 1 DWI in NYS in 2010 at the age of 29. I had a bad run in my late 20s, but have gotten my act straight, am now married and WAS planning for a family, now I don't know since I wouldn't be able to drive my kids around. PO approved re-licensing with no restrictions since I have served out the entire revocation and interlock period on court papers, DIU says no due to 3 in 25 years, even though I applied prior to new laws. I received no notice from DMV or DIU stating that I would be denied, I paid the $100 fee, but now am being told by DIU that I'm not eligible until 2017, and will then need IID for 5 yrs. Can I fight? Can I win?

Lab test at court
If arressted for possession of a drug and the drug was field tested by an officer ( with a NIK test ) when the defendant goes to court, does the court send the evidence to the crime lab to be tested as well? Or do they base the evidence off of the conclusion of the NIk test .. If so how does someone go about getting the court to test the drug in An actual lab
The court does not do testing. The police lab does.
My DWI case is still pending and immigration sent me a notice to deliver arrest record and court disposition.
I was interviewed for i-485 and i-130. After the i-130 approval, immigration sent me a notice for fingerprinting. I went for that. After 3 weeks I received another notice from immigration asking for arrest records and court disposition. As my DWI case is still pending, I will not be able to give them the court disposition. They have given me time until october 15, 2012. However DWI case is going for trial on November 12, 2012. What can I expect on October 15th, when i go to deliver the documents? Will my I-485 will be approved if I tell them that it is my first offense and a misdemeanor? My DWI lawyer told me that I can go No Verdict in my case. I have been to three trial dates but the DA keeps moving it to the other date coz he cannot prove that I am guilty.
An adjustment of status is decided as a matter of discretion. The DWI arrest must be reported as well as the current...
What is/are the the penalty/penalties for a DUI in Nassau County, NY especially after leads to a car accident?
A friend of mine left a club saturday morning and got into an accident when he drove into a truck. Luckily no one was seriously hurt but he and his passenger have a few scratches. It was later found out that he has been drinking and that BAC was above the legal limit. He has been arrested and I'm trying to figure out what is the worst case scenario for his case.
Well worst case scenario is he had a high BAC. If he did the DA will be looking for jail time. Max jail would be 1...

My daughter was convicted of a dwi. She got a interlock system put into her car for one year. Three months in.
She tried to start her car in the morning. The night before she had some drinks. Apparently there were still traces of alcohol in her system. So car didn't start. She was charged with a violation . This is her first offense. She is a single mom with a 3 month old baby. Has a good job. This has been going on for over a year. She never had another incident. The judge wants her to serve 10 to 14 days in jail. For violation. She attends aa twice per week. I think this unfair. She will probably lose her job. And it would be tough on baby. If the judge has already made up his mind. What can we do. He said if we go to a hearing she will get at least 30 days. And he decides. We requested weekends in jail so she doesn't lose her job. And take care of baby.what can we do
The answer is to get a good lawyer to advocate on her behalf. That is an understandably difficult result but it is...
