I don't know where that other lawyer got his information from. But its no points for a first or 2nd offense and a 3rd offense or more has 3 points. Here is what is says directly on the MVC website:

Asset=House to 2 children, Bank accounts/annuity = to 2 children. What is the process/concerns. Would like to avoid probate. Or should we create a different document?
answered on Mar 9, 2023
Unless you are willing to give them all your assets now a living trust in NJ doesn't really accomplish avoiding probate in most cases in NJ. They are great outside of NJ, but not in NJ and thus the reason they are rarely used in NJ. Other process's however may accomplish your goals.... Read more »

If I say something wrong at the hearing, will I take all the responsibility for this accident and then the insurance will not pay the... Read more »

I always recommend that anyone that has a ticket with a mandatory court appearance hire a lawyer as you face up to 15 days in jail and up to a $200.00 fine. Now although the jail part is not likely to happen in most cases, it could in your case as someone is claiming an injury in your case. If... Read more »

The answer is the time depends on the crime committed and the prosecutor does not necessarily have to indicte you to charge you with a crime. If you think you may be charged with a crime speak with a lawyer, if you are already charged most attorneys offer a free in office consultation if you... Read more »
Husband and I got into a dispute that involved pushing. No one was injured and my 12 year old daughter was in the room. Now I have a case open with DCP&P and my husband is not allowed back in my home. Seems like a far reach for a fight that wasn’t that serious. We don’t know what to do but... Read more »

The answer really depends on the situation. Generally, I recommend a lawyer be retained because these problems can lead to criminal charges being filed especially if you think they are going to seek a removal of the child from the home. However, the best time to hire a lawyer was as soon as DCCP... Read more »
I found a wallet and mailed it back to its rightful owner and now I’m being charged with theft I have to go to court for an intake conference.
answered on Jan 8, 2023
More information would be needed to advise you which you probably don't have but could be accessed thru the courts to properly answer your question. But it sounds like you have been charged with theft. The right thing to do with the wallet was to immediately give it to the police,... Read more »
Officer saw my good record and pleasantly came over and gave me 3 tickets for speeding. Unlawful operation and not obeying. Signs . He basically said I was speeding 3 different ways. After he complimented me for having no points
answered on Jan 3, 2023
It never hurts to ask but it probably won't be done without some type of proof, just getting 3 tickets for the same offense is not that uncommon these days as cops tend to write more tickets as everything today is videoed. You may want to request that video.
Pleasant interaction I had no points/ had all my credentials/ why so may tickets for the one offense. Then told me to plea not guilty in court and fight it. Why pleasantly give me 3 tickets to tell me to go plead guilty. Why give me so many tickets in the first place.
answered on Jan 1, 2023
Unlike in the past now that most interactions with police are recorded it is rare to get a warning and not a ticket if you committed the offense as they don't want to seem like they are giving one person and a ticket and not another. In your case if the officer has you on video violating 3... Read more »

First I can't believe the answer of the other attorney who answered this question seems like a canned answer and didn't realize your not the one charged with the offense, you are the victim. That being said since you are the victim, first try going to the police and tell them what... Read more »

To fight the DWI you will need a DWI lawyer. When you find out who used your name you will need a civil litigation lawyer to sue that person. Most of us DWI lawyers offer a free in office consultation during normal business hours.

They may or may not be able to do this, an attorney would need to ask you and the court a lot of question starting with ,one like were the tickets issued and served on you, the reason why they were not in the system, were the tickets sent to another court thus a double jeopardy problem.
