Juan Ooink's answer It is not uncommon for the police not to give you a ticket for the reason of the stop when a more serious ticket is issued. You need to clear your license in Illinois and hire an attorney to assist you with this matter. The sooner you hire an attorney the better.
Juan Ooink's answer No, it should not be dismissed. The ticket can be amended up to the point of trial. You really should hire an attorney to assist you with this matter. The best thing you could do is to hire an attorney and show up to court with a valid license.
Juan Ooink's answer Since the ticket is marked as "Court Appearance Required", you have to appear in court and request Court Supervision. You could also hire an attorney to appear on your behalf to save you a trip to court.
Juan Ooink's answer You only need a parent or guardian present in order to receive Court Supervision. They do not have to be in court on your compliance date. Just make sure to bring the proof that you completed Traffic Safety School and paid all of your fines.

Juan Ooink's answer Yes you still have to pay the fines. At the very least, when you go to renew your driver's license you will not be able to do so until you have paid the fines and it is likely the fines would have increase to a substantial amount by that time. Also, your license could be suspended depending on the type of tickets you are talking about.
Juan Ooink's answer Short answer is no, you cannot seal or expunge such convictions. You will have to ask the governor for a pardon through an Executive Clemency Petition, which are rarely granted. If you decide to file such a petition, you should hire an attorney to assist you.
Juan Ooink's answer If you have a valid warrant and you get pulled over and they ask you out of the car, you have to get out of the car or you could be looking at additional charges for resisting arrest. You really should hire an attorney to assist you with this warrant matter.
