Have You Been Charged With a DUI in Leawood Kansas? Request a Kansas Drivers License Hearing within Fourteen Days
Your court date may be a month or two away, but some rights, such as the right to contest the potential suspension or revocation of your Kansas Driving Privileges when charged with DUI, expire within ten business days/ fourteen calendar days of being served with the DC-27 form (Pink Form). The potential suspension or revocation of your Kansas Driving Privileges is a completely separate matter from the criminal case in Leawood Municipal Court. The administrative hearing request must be made in writing and must also be accompanied by a $50.00 fee. Read the fine print on the DC-27: failure to enclose the $50.00 fee with a written request will result in that request being denied.
When you hire the Law Offices of Charles R. Green one of the first steps we take on your behalf is to request that a Drivers License Hearing be held; this preserves your right to review and contest the suspension of your Kansas Driving Privileges and also importantly allows you to continue to have driving privileges in Kansas until a Drivers License Hearing can be held.
