So take off my monitor and I'm not going to be charged anymore or what exactly does it mean because I read they give you 180 days to file to the grand jury if they don't then they have to let you go but then I also read that they still have up to 3 years to indict you so I need to know...

We are joint managing conservators. I'm the non-custodial, but I had no idea that she would take my daughter to an allergy specialist and begin treatment without consulting with me. Now she is asking for half the cost, but i would like to get a second opinion. How Does that work?

Make an appointment to meet with your appointed lawyer in person to go over the evidence. You are legally entitled to an attorney if you cannot afford one, just not an attorney of your choosing - unless you pay for the attorney yourself. You are unlikely to find a private attorney to take on your...Read more »

Not sure I see any question in what you wrote. You are permitted to defend yourself and third parties from imminent violent crimes against you. Aggravated assault is a serious offense, and self defense is not a simple analysis, you really should take any concerns about your case to your lawyer. If...Read more »
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. Attorneys here can't reach out to solicit your friend's matter. The format here is only question and answer, not attorney referral. But the closest thing here is the Find-a-Lawyer tab above. Your friend could...Read more »

Don't talk to the detective. Don't answer any questions from anyone from law enforcement or HEB. If charges have been filed, you can call a bail bondsman to post the bond and get a court date. After that, you will need to find a lawyer to defend you in your case. Good luck.

I see that you have asked questions related to this situation before...you really are not going to get a complete answer on a free forum. You need to bring these concerns to either your appointed attorney, or the attorney you hire on your case. You MIGHT have issues to object to the search for...Read more »
Once charges have been filed, a good way to help that person would be to assist in their search for a criminal defense attorney to defend their case. Even if someone takes back their statement ("recants"), the district attorney may not immediately dismiss the charges. If the prosecution...Read more »
It's been years since this happened, but about 4 years ago I applied at HEB and was declined because of my "assault charge", is what they said. I know this has to be inaccurate because I was never charged, so I am curious what they saw on my background check?
Yes. Under Chapter 55 of the TX Code of Criminal Procedure, you can petition a civil court to have many types of criminal history record information removed from their respective databases. This includes, but is not limited to, records of formal misdemeanor or felony charges. An attorney can assist...Read more »

I just saw this question this evening. What a mess!
The good news is that there is a way to achieve your goal. The bad news is you will need to go to at least one court to resolve it. You may have to go to two different courts because it has to deal with an Estate now.
I have been very careful to avoid having our living situation qualify as a common law marriage under Texas law. I did designate my live-in friend as my domestic partner for health insurance purposes when I was working, but there was never a formal agreement of any kind. I own 100% of the house we...
