Legal Answers
17 Questions Answered
Q. I have an old DUI case from 2014 that just popped up in a background check. How much would it cost to take care of it?
A: You need to contact a Kentucky DUI attorney who can help evaluate your case. You may be able to plead guilty remotely using Zoom depending on the county, but a DUI remains on your record for 10 years. Most counties are requiring an in-person appearance for a trial now.
Q. Can I drive if ive been charged with dui but not yet convicted? Im out on bond, haven't been to court yet.
A: It depends on whether a pretrial suspension order has been entered (which usually happens at your first court appearance). Your license will be suspended pretrial for refusal of the chemical test, having prior DUIs, etc. Some judges will include no driving as a condition of your bond. Your attorney can challenge the pretrial suspension or seek driving privileges.
Q. If a parent has multiple children in different homes and parental rights are terminated does that apply to all children?
A: If you have not been approved by the state as a foster parent, you will likely need to file a petition to adopt and a termination of parental rights as to the child in your custody. The birth parents may be willing to consent to avoid another involuntary termination. You should contact a Kentucky adoption attorney like myself for a free consultation.
