If you have an upcoming court date for a DWI, you might be unsure of what to do. Chances are good that you are dealing with a bit of fear and emotion, and you might not know what to expect on your court date. You also might not know what to do in the meantime, but there are a few steps that you can take to prepare yourself for your court date. These are a few things that you should do when waiting for your DWI court date.
1. Hire an Attorney ASAP
Do not wait to hire an attorney. Your lawyer is going to need to have some time to learn about and work on your case, so if you wait until the last minute, he or she might not be able to represent you properly.
2. Seek Help for Your Drinking
If you have a drinking problem, it’s smart to seek help now. If you are able to prove to the judge that you have taken alcohol abuse classes, been to substance abuse counseling or been to inpatient or outpatient rehab, it can help you look good in court. This can also be helpful in your personal life, too.
3. Avoid Breaking the Law
The last thing that you should want to do while waiting for a DWI court date is to get in more legal trouble. Try your best to stay on the “straight and narrow” to avoid other charges.
