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 or pleasure.
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.
