OUT OF STATE DRIVER DUI

 

3 THINGS YOU SHOULD DO AFTER YOUR OUT OF STATE DRIVER DUI (NON-CALIFORNIA RESIDENT DUI)

  • You should highly consider hiring an experienced DUI defense attorney to represent you with your NON-CALIFORNIA RESIDENT DUI Case due to the complexity of today’s DUI laws and POSSIBLE JAIL time and non-resident issues

  • Don't talk about the facts of your arrest to anyone, but an experienced DUI defense attorney.  Attorney-client privilege only applies between you and your attorney, meaning anything you say to a non-attorney can be used against you in court​​

  • Don't wait. Act immediately or you may risk waiving certain legal rights forever.​ For example, you only have 10 days from the date of your arrest to request a DMV hearing (which is basically a trial of whether your driver's license should be suspended). If you fail to reserve a date within 10 days of your arrest, you may lose your rights to a hearing and your DMV license will be automatically suspended

6 ISSUES FOR NON-CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS ARRESTED FOR DUI

Many states have reciprocity with each other, meaning a California DUI will likely affect your state's driving privileges.  If you are a visitor from another country, you will have related immigration concerns.  ARREST WARRANTS may also become a big concern       

  • Leaving California - If you are a visitor from another country, you should highly consider hiring an experienced California DUI attorney to represent you.

  • Transferability of DUI Case - You are unable to transfer your DUI case to another state or country

  • Transferability of DUI Penalties - Although it is difficult to transfer penalties to another state or country, an experience California DUI attorney can assess your case to recommend the right resolution to fit your particular situation to the court

  • Coming Back to California - Again, you should highly consider hiring an experienced California DUI attorney to represent you. You will have several complicated decision to make such as related immigration concerns, bail, and arrest warrants.  YOU CALIFORNIA DUI CASE WILL NOT DISAPPEAR BY ITSELF when you get back

  • Appearing at Court - If you are unable to appear at court for your DUI or any criminal hearing, you face an arrest warrant, meaning the police can arrest you and take you to JAIL.  Again, you should highly consider hiring an experienced California DUI attorney to represent you in avoiding unnecessary, but severe criminal penalties. Although, the law now allows judges to require defendants to appear for all DUI hearings, an experienced California DUI attorney may help you avoid unnecessary appears potentially saving thousands of dollars
