What Paperwork Does Someone Get When They Are Released From Jail After Arrest?
Attorney Myles Berman® explains a person is usually given a notice to appear and a temporary license. They may also be given a booking slip and a tow slip. These documents inform the defendant of the details of their court date. The temporary license is a very important document and it begins the 30 day time period within which the suspension goes into effect administratively. The document also states that the defendant has 10 days from the date of arrest to contact the DMV and stop their suspension from going into effect. Sometimes people are so traumatized by the arrest that they don’t even want to look at the paperwork that was given to them. Other times, they misinterpret the situation and think that they have 30 days before their license is suspended. The DMV oftentimes does not tell people that they have the right to stop the suspension from going into effect and to request a hearing.
