Legal Question

Asked on: 8/09/13, 1:42 pm

My dad had his third DUI about 5 1/2 years ago. He's gone through about 6 p.o.'s in that time. They just randomly keep assigning him new ones when he makes office visits every 3 months. The one he had last time he went in said he should be able to get his interlock device off his truck soon, and she would let him know on his next visit. His next visit was today, Friday the 9th of Aug. When he went in he had a different p.o. and they new nothing about it. After much digging, they did find a memo to the bailiff? with a request to have it removed. This p.o. said he would have to get a lawyer and petition the court. I have done some digging, and it seems many sights and blogs agree that a petition to remove it along with an affidavit stating why it should be removed needs to be filed with the judge and the prosecutor the case. My question is twofold: Do we really need a lawyer for this? and Are there forms that we can obtain to do this ourselves?
