Hello,My name isXXXXX'm a licensed attorney and am very happy to try and answer your question today. I am sorry for your circumstances and hope all works out.Yes, unless your continuance was specifically predicated specifically upon only no Oklahoma charges (which I have personally never seen), the Kansas matter will indeed affect your continuance in Oklahoma.

I realize this may not be what you were hoping to hear, but it is the truth. I felt you deserved an honest and accurate answer.If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me. I will be sure to check back for any further word from you when I am again working online in this forum.I truly hope all works out for you and that the information I have provided proves useful. Thanks so much for using this service!Take care,Ben, J.D.
