My DWI was dismissed late last year. I was told I could get my arrest expunged and removed from my record. The Clerk of Court was not allowed to give me legal advice, but they gave me a list of forms for expunction. I cannot seem to find the right form to use. I thought it would be PETITION AND...

We got pulled over in Haywood county where she was going 91 on a 60 mph interstate road. She has never been pulled over or gotten in trouble at all. I was wondering what the best case scenario would be for her to do to either get it dismissed or at leased dropped down to nothing but fines, so that... View More
You guys should hire a local attorney to represent her on this ticket. It is not likely to be dismissed, especially with this high speed. It is exceedingly rare that speeding tickets are just dismissed in NC. Depending on her driving record, she may be able to get a reduction, but this is a high...View More
Someone has a case over a domestic issue, when really it is not anything but overreacted people and emotions. The case is supposed to be dismissed from too many continuations of "victim" not showing. For the defendant who has no criminal history, if this case is removed, does she have to... View More
Well, Expired Registration is a Class 3 misdemeanor in NC, and if you're on probation in NC, a possible conviction on a Class 3 misdemeanor while on probation *ALONE* is not enough to revoke your probation. You may be able to ask for a continuance at your court date, and put it out a few...View More
I have moved out of the NC and never received a notice to new address. I came to know about this in Florida DOT while renewing my licence. I thought I paid the ticket but figured out that the online payment didn't go through. Please help
It may be possible to pay less than that, but we would need more facts, especially which county you received this ticket in. You would also need to hire an attorney to take care of this for you, as it would require a court appearance.
Generally the State can amend the charges with a statement of charges after the fact; what do you mean by the wrong defendant? If it's a spelling error or your middle name was used instead of your first name, these are not fatal errors resulting in dismissal.
She was caught merchandise returned undamaged and noone contacted us. We werent made aware until legal letters came stating we were being held civilly liable for her actions. If I wasnt aware and she wasnt with us and we didnt even get a call about it how are we responsible? She asked if they were... View More
1) In NC, 17 year olds accused of crimes are currently still charged and treated as adults, so there is no requirement for anyone to contact you if your 17 year old daughter is charged with a crime. This does not fall into Juvenile Law, as in NC, your daughter for the purposes of criminal law, is...View More
Get a letter from your insurance company or mechanic stating that the car is a write-off and has been junked, and present that letter in court. The ticket will likely be dismissed if you can present this kind of documentation.
You should contact an experienced local traffic attorney in the county or counties where you were charged in order to discuss your options. You should not assume you can take driving classes - different district attorney's offices have differing policies as to whether they even accept...View More
This question is a bit confusing, would definitely need more information or for the question to be clarified to give you a real answer. And if the ticket is from a different state, you should probably forward this question to the Justia board for that state.
No, if you pay the ticket, you do not need to appear. I still suggest contacting a local traffic attorney in the county where you were charged to see if paying this ticket without looking for a possible reduction or consideration is truly in your best interest.
I had an old policy that I cancelled on 8/01/2012 because I had paid the premium. Of $200+. I had to get a new policy in October on the 4. I got pulled over on 12/03/2017 saying I had no insurance since August and my tag was taken. I recieved my property tax papers dated on 11/27/2017 saying I had... View More
I would bring all paperwork stating that you did have insurance as of October with you to court, and show that to the Assistant District Attorney. They may dismiss the ticket if you can show you actually did have insurance when you were pulled over.
This happened while she was driving a friend who was in possetion and she was charged also. The only other thing on here history is a misdemor check charge from 30+ years ago. How do we go about removing this?
