Customer Question

Hello it began with a misdemeanor d.u.i. in Nevada 2011, no accident,non violent, non drug. Because of policy change in 2010 my charge was changed to a felony in 2012.I am dual citizen with now a current third residency in central america. I am also adopted so my last name differs. Living abroad with a prospective very good employer in the horizon. How can this best be handled without doing time or returning to the u.s. I would like to be able to receive S.S. in the next 10 years. Thanks.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about this?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The cost because currently I am not working.
