If the DA's office or the police come to see him or otherwise contact him he MUST get a lawyer to help. Many times the Law will have an alternative method to resolve the debt and avoid a criminal charge. It is not always...Read more »
This is a sticky situation. If you live at the house, you can invite anyone to come see you. However, I would not expect them to "hang out" at the house. You would need them to only stay in your room. Thus, they can come pick you up, or visit you in private, but to do so is asking for...Read more »

What compliance/regulations do I need to be aware of when taking investments from potentially non accredited investors for... Read more »
What you are asking is a very complicated question. If you are acting as a fiduciary for investors you will need a license to do so in Texas. The way around that is to have investors become partners with you on a deay by deal basis. You would need to carefully set-up a different company for each...Read more »

In Texas most mortgages are secured by a Note, a mortgage, and a Deed of Trust. Unfortunately, that allows the Bank to forclose without going to court. That letter they sent you is for real! Do NOT ignore it.
Your only real legal move is to file a lawsuit against the Bank to STOP the...Read more »
It is hard to understand what your issue is. If your daughter has moved out, then she no longer has a legal relationship with the landlord. If she was evicted because of false representations by the landlord, that is a different issue.
Yes, it is unlawful to evict, reject, or charge for a...Read more »

I got a warning from a TPWD Game Warden for no hunter's safety certificate. I was told to email proof of completion to the local judge and the issue would be resolved, i wouldn't have to appear in court (I have already done so). There is a handwritten appearance date at the bottom, what do I do?
It sounds like you received a Warning from the Officer, with the condition that you send your proof of the safety class to the judge. You then seem to say you went to court as noticed. So if you did not yet go to court, then you need to send your proof of...Read more »
My ex-wife was caught lying to a judge a few years ago regarding violating an order of protection against her then-boyfriend. She was confronted, admitted to it, and then verbally reprimanded by the Court. Later she married the guy, and he ended up involved in four DCFS cases against my son (whom... Read more »
You can request the transcript of the proceedings wherein your ex lied to the court. Because you were a party to the former proceeding, you are entitled to get it. However, not every court has every proceeding recorded in Texas. You should make sure there is such transcript first. Then you can...Read more »
My client sent me a text they were going to work directly with new builder and decided not to put me as their agent. I do have a buyer's rep agreement and was wondering if I could still get a commission from the sale. I spoke with sales-rep and they said if buyer did not include me, I would... Read more »
I can tell you that whether or not you can enforce the buyer rep agreement depends on the exact language in the agreement. The fact that the buyers want to change the terms or their obligations, means nothing if they breach the agreement you both signed. Many new builders, insist on a certain...Read more »
A good lawyer can review your evidence and tell you the value and whether or not it is admissible as evidence. Whether or not something is admissible often depends on what purpose or what theory of the case you are trying to prove.
We are currently trying to sell the property but we can't get a hold of the in law and his son is the only one who knows where he is none of his family has seen or talked to him in 8 months and now his son claims his father gave him power over his affairs and won't show documents stating...

I would want to see the deed which gave you and your in-law the property. If the person has Power of attorney they would show it to you. A power of attorney can be rejected by the maker at any time, if that matters here.
Your situation is not simple. To give you solid advice on what to do I would need more information. Did your Aunt recently pass-away? How did you receive the property? Was it through a court proceeding?
If you paid all the taxes for the past 10 years alone, then you are in the power...Read more »

The Texas Government Code at Title 4, Sec. 406.004. ELIGIBILITY. (a) Each person...Read more »
You can try. But I guarantee when you return to this country, you will be arrested.
The reason I say you can try is because I don't believe the PP application asks if you have any warrants. The Government does do a background search on you as part of your PP application. Not all...Read more »
