You need to call your own automobile liability insurance carrier. They will provide a defense for you. After you do that, you can hire a plaintiff's lawyer to assert your claims for you.

The probation office is literally across the hall from the District Clerk's office. Is it really necessary to pay $150+ to have the officer served by a sheriff's deputy or is there a different process for court officials?

If you have the local Sheriff's office serve the subpoena, they do not charge for serving a subpoena in a criminal case because you have a Constitutional right to subpoena witnesses in your defense.

The answer to your question depends on the specific language of your Decree. We cannot answer it here since we do not know what your Decree says. I suggest that you contact an experienced family law attorney.

If the lawsuit had not been filed within two years of the injury, it may be barred by the statute of limitations.

I suggest that you turn yourself in on a weekday afternoon on Monday through Wednesday. That way, you will likely be booked into jail, have to spend the night there and then be brought before a Magistrate the next morning. At that time, you can tell the Magistrate (usually a Justice of the Peace)... Read more »

Under the Texas Family Code, you have to have "standing" in order to bring a lawsuit to get Court ordered possession of or access to children. "Standing" essentially means the right to bring the lawsuit. It can be very technical. You need to consult with an experienced family... Read more »

Can a case that was dismissed be expunged if you have prior convictions? For instance, if you have a case dismissed in 2019 but you have a conviction for a separate case in 2015, can the dismissal be expunged or sealed?
answered on Apr 5, 2021
It depends on when the statute of limitations will run on the case that was dismissed on in 2019. There is a good possibility that you can get the dismissed case expunged.

I suggest contacting the prosecutor and telling him or her that you do not want the case prosecuted and that you want to sign an affidavit of non-prosecution. The prosecutor is not bound by the affidavit and can still prosecute the case anyway, but that may help.
Her new boyfriend and his family are also contributing to this issue

Call the police. You may have enough evidence to pursue criminal charges.
My daughter has been clean since and I would like to give custody back to her. Nothing was ever filed on Texas so what do I need to do?
