Juan Ooink answered on Oct 19, 2020

What? No attorney can be proficient in all areas of law. You need a different attorney for each area of law you need assistances with. Some large firms handle all areas of law, so you might want to consider hiring a firm to assist you as opposed a single attorney.

Not sure what you mean by "what i can do." You can always move out. If your parents wish to evict you, they will have to file it with the Court in the county where you live and deal with it in court in order to remove you. Not sure you or your parents want it to get to this level.

Q: Is an expired license plate a moving violation in the state of Illinois?

I got a ticket for being on my phone and for having an expired license plate in February. I paid both and fixed the license plate. I got another ticket a few weeks ago for not seeing a car on a free right. I just want to know if I'm going to lose my driver's license or not.

It should not matter if you go to court on the new ticket and ask for Court Supervision. Court Supervision is not a conviction, so it will not count towards your three in twelve months.
