DUI’s and Relocating to Another State – Interstate Compact
DUI and Relocation. For those individuals who get convicted of a second or otherwise subsequent DUI in Washington State, or who have entered into a deferred prosecution and have a prior DUI conviction may encounter difficulty in lawfully moving to another state. A person in such a position is now required to comply with the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision (“ICAOS“).
The ICAOS is an agreement among the states that dictates how certain “offenders” are to be monitored. Under the ICAOS, a person who is on probation for a second or greater DUI or on a deferred prosecution with a prior DUI, cannot move to another state before he has complied with all ICAOS requirements. Generally compliance means: (1) gaining the approval of the probation department, and (2) notifying the probation department of the new state that they are now responsible for the individual. If you believe that the ICAOS may apply to your current situation, contact a Seattle DUI attorney and/or a Bellevue DUI attorney immediately to discuss your options. Violating the ICAOS can have significant implications on your life.
