Allen C. Ladd's answer Thank you for your very thoughtful and courteous question! I don't see any problem at all with the H-1B process. It's when driving and alcohol mix that there are serious serious consequences. Piacere!
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Did you think that going to school would get the ticket off of your record? If doing so in fact would do that, and I have my doubts, did you submit proof of taking the course to the appropriate agency?
Sasha Dadan Bonna's answer You should obtain a lawyer for your case immediately. You were likely charged with driving with a suspended license in Florida. PA is part of "The Driver License Compact" which means Florida would treat the offense as if it had been committed at home, applying home state laws to the out-of-state offense.
Unfortunately, when you sell a car you are obligated to immediately notify the DMV of the sale, in order to prevent something like this from happening. The ticketing authority has no idea who you sold the car to if you haven't done that. Since you didn't do so, you are liable for the tickets; you are probably going to have to pay them.
Charles M. Baron's answer You did not ask a question, but you seem to be wondering what to do in this situation. Also, I assume that the lawyer sent you some sort of demand regarding damages for bodily injury. The first step is to look at the police report - what does it say about who was in which car, and about bodily injury? However, since you are in this situation, I'm guessing you did not stick around for the police response to the accident after you struck the parked car, and that the other driver lied to the...
Alex McClure's answer You have the right to contest the ticket. Follow the directions on the citation for doing so. You may wish to reach out to a "ticket clinic" (a law firm that does traffic ticket defense) for help. Many people believe its worth the cost, but that's up to you.
Alex McClure's answer The only realistic, meaningful way to handle the situation is to contact an attorney in your area who handles cases of toll violations and suspensions. Your case isn't that odd to be unheard of. An experienced attorney will get you your best results, the fastest way possible.
Google can help you line up some firms to call to discuss.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer It is always best to be honest. These are not the types of violations that tend to keep people out of the US, but lying on an immigration form is. It is likely they will be disclosed as part of the criminal background check, yes.
Michael Celso Gonzalez's answer You could get up to 5 years in prison and the legality of that sentence could not be appealed. That usually doesn't happen but it could depend on your prior criminal history, if any. When it comes to driver's license issues you should hire a specialist because if it is not handled properly you could lose your license for a very long time and continue to get arrested for years to come. I have been able to analyze driving records under similar circumstances and fix the problem that caused the...
