It was said that since im on PTI my case is still open that if it was regular probation the case is closed and i can get my passport. my question is, is it possible as I'm a contractor that works in and out of the country. I've paid all the fines they gave me and completed the 50 hours community service also. And my sister is doing a destination wedding in london next month. My lawyer is no help and looking for new counsel for this matter.
Last question, as I stated I'm not happy with my lawyer and looking for new counsel. Will it be advised to keep my lawyer for this passport issue or looking for new counsel if I don't feel comfortable. I don't mind paying for this passport issue. And does the paying of the fine in full and completing the community help in the case. Ive only been on PTI for two weeks
