Legal Answers
Q. Can I move out on probation if I’m considered ‘low-risk’ at 18?
A: Assuming you are 18 years old and on adult probation, the probation officer shouldn't have to contact your mother. Provided you are not ordered to remain in your current residence, talking through this issue with the Probation Officer should result in you being able to move provided it is in the same jurisdiction and you are not moving out of state.
Q. I'm in the military and found guilty of DUI in 2012. How can I reinstate my driving privileges in Virginia?
A: Unfortunately, in Virginia, you will have to comply with the DMV requirements to get reinstated. This is going to include, paying a reinstatement fee, attending VASAP, and carrying FR-44 insurance for 3 years. DMV makes it difficult to on out of state people.
