on something like this, check with a wrongful death attorney. don't take advice from anyone who isn't qualified - not even an attorney unless he/she is a specialist in wrongful death claims. It costs nothing for an initial visit.

U.K. Answers Only Please As Other Countries Have A Very Different System. Many Thanks,
I'm not in the UK but seeing that you don't have any other answers, I might be able to help. I live in US and would begin by checking the Yellow Pages under Attorneys, there should be a listing for Legal Aid. Or you could probably call any attorney, and they will give you a telephone number to call. Schedule an appointment, they will let you know if you are eligible. Depending on your situation, you may even be able to file for a no fault (uncontested) divorce with minimal costs.

>>>>>>>>Reminder: We are in a World-wide Recession.
Warning> Jobs in the field of Law are drying up fast!! This is just not a good field to invest time and/or money into. This is a SHRINKING, crumbling, and dying vocational field. Many reasons. Many people today (mistakenly) think they can do their own legal work, thanks to the Internet. Also, we simply already have way too many Legal Professionals - we have an absolute glut!! ("Legal Professionals" includes, but is not limited to: Attorneys/Lawyers, Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc)
Employers (usually law firms) in the field of Law today want employees with degrees from traditional colleges/universities. Those "certificates" you see advertised aren't worth the paper they are printed on - they are generally scams. (I found this out the hard way.)
Cost of law school to be lawyer, approx $150,000+.
>>>>>Be prepared to take on a lot of debt.
Even if you finish law school, you won't be able to find a job when you are done. Since this vocational field is shrinking, many new attorneys/lawyers are, themselves, having to work "down" as Paralegals, Legal Assistants, Legal Secretaries, Bailiffs, Court Reporters, etc, etc, to simply try to keep some of their bills paid <<this would be your competition. And the competition is fierce!!
Now... the law schools know this, but they won't tell you the truth >that the job market/economy is just saturated with way too many Legal Professionals. Instead the schools will feed you a fairytale and will lie to you. The root of the problem is we have too many law schools. We are in a recession, and the schools are fighting for their own survival - they will tell students anything to get to the students' money. (Which is why they won't tell you the truth about the job market for the field of Law.) And these schools continue to recruit and churn out even more graduates.............
If you don't believe me, then just do a search here on Yahoo Answers to see what other posters are saying about the current status of the field of Law. Call some local law firms - ask to speak to the Manager of Human Resources - ask them if they are hiring; ask them what they think about job availability in the field of Law..................
In the book "So You Want to be a Lawyer?" by Marianne Calabrese and Susanne Calabrese (ISBN 0-88391-136-1): "The United States has more lawyers than any other country in the world. About 38,000 students graduate >each year< from the 200+ law schools in the United States. The competition is very keen for jobs and clients." - Even Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (who served on the U.s. Supreme Court for more than 20 years) says there are too many lawyers. (9/14/2008)

If you want a job when you are done with your studies, consider and look into the field of >>>Healthcare! I spoke to a career counselor from Jobs and Family Services, and HE told me that this is where the jobs are, and future job availability! and scholarships!

Hi, DWI citations/charges are handled in magistrate's Court. Since this is your first DWI charge, Read this code regarding the penalties etc., for first offender DWI cases: http://www.drivinglaws.org/resources/dui...
As far as acquiring an attorney, you can ask for a court appointed one. Here is the information for North Carolina, and the site I got the information from: http://www.ncsu.edu/stud_affairs/legal_s...
HIRING AN ATTORNEY: Because of the serious nature of a DWI arrest and the potential for jail terms, loss of license, heavy fines, and a criminal record, it is advisable to be represented by an attorney during the court proceedings. You always have the right to hire your own attorney. The attorney's fee will vary according to the attorney and the seriousness of the offense. The advantage to hiring your own attorney is you get to choose who that attorney will be. You also have the option to request a court appointed attorney. To qualify for a court appointed attorney, you must complete an Affidavit of Indigency (you can get the form from the clerk of courts) showing your income and your expenses. If after completing this form, the judge decides that you cannot afford an attorney, he can appoint one from a list of attorneys that do court appointed work. You have no voice in who the judge will appoint to represent you. (However, the attorney's are all licensed, practicing attorneys in your area).
Some counties have a Public Defenders Office who will be appointed to represent you if you so request and qualify for that service. If you use the services of the court appointed attorney or a Public Defender and you plead guilty or are found guilty, the judge will order you to reimburse the State of North Carolina for using a court appointed attorney. The amount that you have to pay varies according to how many hours your attorney worked on your case. Generally speaking, the judge will order you to pay $100.00 - $250.00. This amount is normally less than what you would have to pay for a private attorney.
You can read more in this site because it gives you ranges of a field sobriety test and other really good information. Good luck!! JOSA
Do I Need A Lawyer?
My Bf Got Pulled Over Right Outside My Apartment Complex For A Seatbelt Violation Then Arrested For Suspended License. Within Minutes (Less Than 5) I Was On The Scene To Pick Up The Car (Registered To My Dad). The Cops Still Would Not Let Me Take The Car. My Dad Is Writing A Letter To Have The Impound/Towing Fee ($465) Dismissed. Was The Towing Justified Even With Me There To Pick Up The Car That Might Have Been 200 Yds Away From My Home? Was The Arrest Justified For Driving On A Suspended License (From Insurance Issues) In Illinois? Please No Smartass Comments.
You don't need a lawyer, your bf needs a lawyer, and insurance ASAP. Insurance King or General are cheap, he will need proof of Insurance when he goes to court, the lawyer can probably get it dismissed. Illinois is corrupt, but all of the corrupt politicians have lawyers.
