Don't let a DUI derail your divorce

A DUI in California has the potential to significantly impact your future. If you're going through a divorce and have children, your reputation as a good parent could come under fire. If you had children in your vehicle at the time, you may significantly hurt your case for custody.

Even if you don't have your children with you at the time of a DUI, it shows that you didn't follow the laws and that you made a fairly major mistake that put your life and others' lives in danger. Additionally, the DUI itself is expensive and could threaten your job, which doesn't look good to the court.

What should you do if you face a DUI while also going through a divorce?

If you are arrested for a DUI at any time, it's a good idea to inform your attorney. Your attorney will take steps to help you prevent the DUI from impacting your life more than it has to. Your attorney will also help prevent you from suffering damage to your reputation and will make sure that all appropriate steps were taken before accusing you of a DUI.

In divorce court, there are some steps you can take to show that you're not taking the DUI lightly. You can take driving courses and pay fines on time. You can attend addiction treatment or go to meetings for people quitting alcohol. Anything you can do to show that you're willing to improve your circumstances will always look good to the court.

Our site has more on how a DUI can affect you and what you should do if you're accused and arrested.
