I have a question regarding the renewal of my husbands

Customer Question

Customer: Hello. My name is ***** ***** I have a question regarding the renewal of my husbands resident alien card.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: My husband has been in the US since he was 5. His resident alien card has no expiration date but needs to be updated in order for him to renew his ID card and Drivers License. He however, has had 4 DWI convictions. He is currently on probation and has completed all of his requirements under probation along with us paying his surcharges. They are asking for him to renew his DL at this time, but it can't be done until he has a current resident alien card. Will we be able to get one or will they start deportation due to his convictions?
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Immigration Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

If you understand that, please answer the following:

Has he ever been confined (i.e., in jail or prison)? IF so, for how long?

What were the exact offense codes for which he was convicted? Usually, after a couple of DWIs, the offenses and punishments increase.

Was anybody ever seriously injured or killed as a result?

Did he ever get caught driving on a suspended license?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He had to do 10 days in the county jail, weekends. I do not have the exact codes, but will ask his probation officer. There were never any injuries or anyone killed. No, he has never driven on a suspended license.

OK, I will need that information about the offense codes to answer this question accurately.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I found his court papers. It has NO: 366-80225-09 (single count), Driving while intoxicated 3rd or more, also has numbers proceeded by TRN/TRS, and SID. If you need those numbers, let me know. It is an order continuing defendant on adjudicated community supervision. He has attended drug court and has not had a drink since the arrest. He has completed his DWI/Drug Court, paid court costs, and is currently paying his surcharges monthly. He is to continue his community supervision until June 2017.

Hi there,

Sorry for the delay. I was away when you responded. My apologies for any inconvenience this might have caused you.

In what state did these take place?

And were they all alcohol related? Or were drugs involved?

Is that number an offense code? Or is that his ticket number?
