Getting arrested for DUI is a nerve-wracking event, especially if it’s
never happened to you before. When you get arrested for DUI while travelling
in another state, now that’s a whole other story.
You just doubled the complexity of the matter because you have to deal
with the DUI in the state where you were arrested, and you have to deal
with it in your home state. Not exactly a walk in the park.
If you live in another state, there are other things that you will have
to resolve because of your California DUI arrest. If you call the Law
Offices of Virginia L. Landry, Inc., we can help you understand this process
and what needs to be done to remedy the situation.
We know you live far, so you don’t have to come to our office to
get this information. We would be glad to schedule a telephone consultation
so we can discuss in further detail what happens in out of state DUI cases.
Learn How the Laws in Both States Affect You
The laws vary from state to state, and
DUI is no exception. That being said, we can explain the difference between
the laws in California and your home state, and if necessary, we can refer
you to a qualified attorney in your state of residence to help you with
any driver’s license-related issues.
Though you were arrested for DUI in California, that does not mean that
the state can suspend your driving privileges in your home state; California
does not have the power to do that. However, California does have some
authority over what you do when you’re visiting the state for business
When you come to California, the state can say that while you’re
here, you’re not allowed to drive. If you come here often to see
family or for business, this can be a dilemma.
If you were arrested for DUI in Orange County and you live in
another state, please call our office for help putting a solution in motion before your
home state finds out about your DUI. In California, you’ll need
help with the DMV and the court, which are two separate entities, both
of which will take action against you because you were arrested for DUI.
Let us help you take care of it.
Our Orange County DUI defense firm is open 24/7 to take your call.
