Re: Moving to Another State After a DUI Charge
You're not likely to escape the requirement that Virginia has enacted into law simply by moving to another state. You were under VA court jurisdiction at the time you committed the offense and that will not change if you up and move away after the fact. Obviously, the mandatory one year suspension will still be in effect regardless of which state your licensed in, and once your privilege to drive is suspended in VA it would follow that it is also suspended in any other state as per the DLC and or NRVC requirements. Similarly, any additional requirements set by VA will have to be completed by you otherwise, the status of your license and a warrant can be issued for your arrest regardless of which state you decide to move to. Of course your attorney may be aware of other options.
Sorry but that was something to think about before the fact... No one would ever assume that a DUI conviction comes as part of a reasonable expense.
Well, according to this article, VA will join 15 other states who have already enacted similar requirements!!! Whether that is true or which states those might be, you'll have to look into that on your own.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
