Getting arrested for a DUI can be costly, even if you don't get convicted. It's important to understand the various costs that are involved when arrested for a DUI, because not paying for them could cause you to be unable to reinstate your driver's license in the future. One thing that many people don't realize is that driver's licensing requirements after a DUI arrest are separate from the criminal court proceedings.
That means that even if your criminal charges get reduced or thrown out, you will likely still lose your driving privileges. Here are a dozen costs that you may incur following a DUI arrest, some of which you may have to pay even if you aren't convicted.
In addition to those costs, you may lose work hours due to all the appointments you'll have and the classes you'll need to attend. If so, your income may be lower than normal if you don't have paid leave or any vacation time saved up. Due to all these costs, not to mention the embarrassment of a DUI, it's a good idea to hire a lawyer from a firm like Hart Law Offices, PC as soon as possible to help you navigate through all the costly requirements so you can reinstate your driver's license.
Hello and welcome, I'm Winfred Paulo. I have a passion for civil court cases of all kinds. Some time back, I ended up in the thick of a civil case after a lengthy dispute with my neighbor. The dispute went on for years and ended badly with an incident that landed us both in court. We had to prove our side of the case in an effort to obtain a positive outcome and recoup our losses. Unfortunately, I lost the case due to a lack of evidence. Since then, I've maintain a strong interest in civil cases and their proceedings. I will share information about civil cases on this site to help others understand these proceedings better. I may talk about legal terms, and expected outcomes for each case type. I hope you visit often to learn more. Thanks for stopping by my website.
