Helping Your Spouse Deal With a DUI Charge

Nov 02, 2016

If your spouse has been charged with a DUI, there are things you can do to support them through the process. While you might not be thrilled with your loved one’s predicament, they might need your help now more than ever. Here are three things you can do to help your spouse deal with a recent DUI charge.

1. Help Your Spouse with an Attorney

When it comes to DUI charges, time is of the essence. If your spouse is recovering from receiving charges and might be working through the initial fallout of this, they should get an attorney in their corner as soon as possible. If you can help find a professional DUI attorney to represent your spouse, they can help with filing motions and building a DUI case, a step which might need to move rapidly.

2. Keeping Your Family’s Routine Going

Depending on the severity of charges, your spouse may have missed work or have their license suspended. It might be up to you to keep your family’s routine as normal as possible. This might involve picking up the slack on getting everyone in your family to work and school, and keeping normal routines for your kids by asking other family members to pitch in.

3. Being a Calming Presence for Your Spouse

While your emotions might be running high, if your spouse received a DUI charge, they will need your emotional support while working through their charges with their attorney. Find someone to talk to if you are stressed out, but try to be a supportive presence for your spouse, especially if they will be facing a court and might be trying to lessen or fight charges that are on the table.

If your spouse recently has been charged with a DUI, contact us to help get their case in order. The sooner they deal with charges with a professional attorney by your side, the better chances they will have of lessening the longstanding damages a DUI can cause.
