If you had a 1 year probation, I am not sure the case was dismissed. Talk with the attorney who represented you about the final disposition of the case. Then talk with an immigration attorney in your area. Good luck.

Q: An insurance company sued me back in 2002 and blocked me from getting my license. How do I find out who they were?

No one remembers the court or insurance company. The DPS said I could get a form that could release me from the debt due to the age since it is over 10 years old. This all happened in Collin County in the city of Plano, Texas. I am trying to get my license back after 17 years.

Grant St Julian III
Grant St Julian III answered on Oct 18, 2019

The DPS should have the contact information of the judgment creditor. It us true, however, thar you can remove the holds on your license if the judgement has remained dormant for 10 years. Contacting an attorney would help. Good luck

Will getting insurance the same day you got the citation help dismiss the no insurance ticket?

No, obtaining car insurance after you received a citation will not cause the ticket to be dismissed. Insurance must but be in effect at the time the citation was issued.

Q: My neigbor took my jerican without my consent. she didnt return. I entered, picked but charged me tresspass

My neighbor took my jerrican without my consent. she didn't return it. I entered, picked it from her residence, but she charged me for trespass. what should I do?

Grant St Julian III
Grant St Julian III answered on Oct 10, 2019

The two issues are separate. The fact your neighbor took your personal property does not necessarily give you the right to enter her property without permission. That being said, enter plea of not guilty and set your case for trial. Calling an attorney would help. Good luck.
