Florida Law Advisers, P.A.

DUI Counseling – Florida DUI Law

Under Florida DUI law (Florida Statute 322.291), if your license is suspended for drunk driving or you are convicted of DUI you may be required to complete a substance abuse education course (DUI school). At Florida law advisers, P.A., we take a comprehensive approach to defending clients. We assist our clients in all aspects of a DUI case, including helping our clients complete the required substance abuse education course. Below is some of the general information you may need regarding DUI school. If you have been arrested for DUI, contact us to speak with a Tampa DUI attorney for individualized advice based on the specific facts of your case.

If your driver’s license was suspended due to a DUI arrest, you must complete the substance abuse education course in order to get your license reinstated. DUI school can include a certified evaluation session, a substance abuse education course, and additional counseling or treatment if recommended by the counselor. You must complete all of the DUI school requirements within 90 days of enrolling in the course. If you fail to satisfy all the conditions of the course within 90 days of enrollment you, must start from the beginning and take the entire course over again.

There are two types of substance abuse courses: the Level 1 and Level 2 course. The type of course that will be required depends on the circumstances of the arrest and whether or not the driver has previous DUI convictions. The Level 1 course requires a minimum 12 hours of instruction, and the Level 2 course requires a minimum of 21 hours of class time. Both of the two courses are intended to educate drivers on the effects of drunk driving, rather than serving as a form punishment.

rehabilitative alimony in Florida

Rehabilitative alimony in Florida is financial support intended to provide a former spouse with the opportunity to establish the capacity for self-support, proportionate to the standard of living during the marriage. The length of the marriage will play a factor in whether or not rehabilitative alimony is appropriate, but it is not dispositive. Instead, the focus should be on the impact the marriage had on the earning potential of the spouse seeking alimony.
