I’m a green card holder and have my final citizenship interview this month. The misdemeanor was from driving with an expired drivers license and getting rear ended (I’m not at fault for accident), but the officer said if I can renew my license before my court date, it should be able to be...

There's no way of telling whether or not the misdemeanor will effect your immigration status without more details. Also, as far as renewing your license, it's rather straightforward now (make an appointment, or do it online). Consult with a law office who will try to get the ticket...Read more »

Your post remains open for three weeks. You may have resolved the matter by now. But if you haven't, traffic ticket attorneys do charge for their appearances, but if you reached out to them to briefly discuss, many do offer free initial consults. In light of the financial situation, if you...Read more »

I intend to plead guilty but wanted to explain how this happened. I was in a small convenience store parking lot and someone parked very close to me.

I do not believe it will affect your GA drivers license, but you should check with the GA DMV to be certain. You should consider retaining a NY attorney to represent in this matter. You would not have to appear.

The courts will not accept and insurance card or a letter from a broker. It needs to come from your insurance...Read more »
You can't sue for the stress. There is no legal theory on which to base such a cause of action. If you believe it won't adversely impact your job, you could politely ask if reimbursement from the hospital is possible. The answer is likely to be no at most workplaces, but these are unusual...Read more »
You will not get points, and your insurance should not increase. Reason, the camera shows the vehicle speeding, but not who was driving the vehicle. It is error to assume the owner/registrant is the driver
Assuming you are writing the citation correctly "VTL 375-2(a)3" this is an equipment violation, for no/insufficient tail lamp. As long as you pay the ticket, the ticket will not affect your driving record.
I was the passenger in a car where the driver license was suspended. I was instructed to get in the driver seat because my license was valid. I also received a ticket for oper/permit/lic reg art 7, which is also a misdemeanor. What does that ticket even mean? And would it be dismissed because my... Read more »
