What to do if I'm an international student and was summoned to court inanother state for a state highway-traffic violation and unlicensed operation"?
Question Details: Basically what happened is that I got into accident on the highway (it was my fault), but the only significant damage was done to my car. I am pretty sure I was not operating my car illegally, and, I guess, by "violation off highway traffic” they mean that the accident was my fault. The thing is though that I am summoned to the court at the end of the August, by which time I would be back to my home country with a degree in my hand. So what should I do in this situation, when I will not be in US at the date of my court?
Given the fact that you need to resolve the traffic related matter before you return to your home country for good but cannot attend the August 2013 hearing date, I suggest that you retain an attorney experienced in traffic matters to appear for you so as to avoid the issunace of a bench warrant for your arrest for not attending.
Hopefully the attorney will get the matter resolved without the need for you to appear at the matter in court.
