Where were you arrested? A DUI is a state offense, but each jurisdiction handles them slightly differently.

Will a DUI hurt your chances of getting a mortgage?

Being charged with a DUI often carries consequences that extend beyond the legal ramifications of the crime. One common concern for people who have been charged and convicted for driving under the influence is whether or not their chances of getting a mortgage will take a hit. While the answer depends on a number of factors, there is certainly cause for concern.

DUI and employment background checks

Everyone makes a mistake at some point in their lives. For the purposes of this hypothetical scenario, let’s assume that the mistake you made happened shortly after you turned 21. While out to dinner with friends, you have a couple of drinks and because you do not feel intoxicated, you decide to go ahead and drive yourself home. On your way home, you are pulled over by the police and admit to having had some drinks before getting behind the wheel. A breathalyzer test shows that you are just barely over the legal BAC recognized in Arizona, which is 0.08% for standard drivers (or 0.04% for drivers of commercial vehicles). Due to Arizona’s zero tolerance policy in regards to driving under the influence of alcohol, you find yourself being arrested for a DUI.
