Congratulations on becoming a father! You should check with some attorneys in your jurisdiction. I respond to a large number of calls from people looking for information here in Massachusetts and I suspect that most NC lawyers would be willing to spend a few minutes on the phone with you. In Massachusetts, the three issues to be addressed are (1) risk of relapse / recidivism (2) the need to drive, and (3) the accuracy of your driving / criminal record (e.g. number of prior DUI offenses, suspensions, etc…) Best of luck!
