DWI Away from Your Home State

If you are an out of state driver charged with DWI in Texas, you face a situation more complicated than facing a DWI in your home state. Not only may you be required to be present in Texas for certain proceedings, your home state license may also be affected. If you find yourself in this circumstance, you will need a Texas lawyer representing you in the legal process that follows. A Liberty County DWI attorney can advise you as to the specific factors you will have to face and make sure you are aware of your rights and options.

The Driver License Compact is an agreement whereby most states share information regarding driving offenses with the relevant authority in the home state of the individual concerned. This means that if you are convicted of DWI in Texas, this information will be sent to your home state where it can result in actions being taken against your license in accordance with the laws of that state. The only states which do not participate in this compact are Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
