We have already discussed the common mistakes that you can make as well as the evidence that you need to present and how to handle them. In this article, let us talk about the other evidence that may help your case.
Documentary evidence of attendance at support meetings
If your case is related to substance abuse then it is probably a part of your requirements that you go through counseling or therapy. You may have also been required to attend certain hearings and specific support meetings that would show your enthusiasm to join the fold again.
With that, we always recommend that you try to add other evidence that may help your case through documentary evidence of your attendance at the support meetings.
However, this can be very tricky if you are not able to present it in such a way that it is genuine. Here at Haque Legal, we need you to know of the following ways to make sure that the documentary evidence you present will be good for your case. So, what is the documentary evidence of attendance at support meetings that you may present?
The attendance sheet itself
More often than not when you attend a support meeting there will be attendance sheets for one reason or another. If you can get a copy of the sheets and submit them as evidence in court and also have someone testify or submit a statement that you have been attending the necessary support meetings, you will have exactly what you need.
The attendance sheet will not be a standalone additional evidence because it is only optional on your part. You would need to prove its relevance to the restoration of your driving license and your license privileges in Michigan.
The photos of the meetings
Photos are documentation of reality. The photos that you have of the meetings that you attended could also be considered as a piece of good additional evidence. It would be great to present the photos to the agency during your hearing.
The videos of the meetings
If photos or good to be presented it will also be good to present the videos of the meetings and show that you have been diligently doing your part in all of the meetings and in the attendance that is required.
Other positive documentation
You would also need to present other positive documentation that would show that you have indeed turned your life around and that you are ready to be accepted back into society’s fold.
Getting New Education
Getting new education or finishing up your education is a good indicator of the positive change that you have made in your life. If it does not indicate a positive change it at least indicates that you are ready to take on new challenges and you are responsible enough to finish them.
Getting Stable Employment
Getting stable employment is also important. It shows that you have been responsible for your finances and that as a member of society you are also paying taxes. This is a good indicator of how you have turned your driving under the influence into something that would bring positivity to your life.
Starting A Family
Starting a family or getting married is also an indicator that you have indeed seen the importance of your responsibilities as a member of society. Being able to commit your time and show that you are responsible is a good indicator that you are ready to be a part of the driving public again.
Being A Model Of The Community
Being a model member of the community is also a good indicator that you are living a good life. If you are a model member of the community you can show that you have changed and this would also be supported by the positive statements that are part of the required documentation for the setting of your hearing.
Volunteer work is also a good indicator of positive change in your life.
Of course, none of the additional positive documentation will be able to guarantee that you are ready to take on new challenges. The volunteer work that you are getting and being part of the model community as well as getting new challenges in your life and finishing them are great indicators of your new renewed private sense of life but they do not guarantee anything.
Here at Haque Legal, however, we believe that anything positive in your life can be used as evidence for your case.
