We hear these kinds of pleas for help far too often in Texas due to the nature of our system. I won't go into all the systemic problems which contribute to the CPS nightmare which you find yourself in. The good news is this: there is help out there. The bad news is this: the help you need is...Read more »

First, I am not a Texas lawyer. But I believe that the initial procedure you should explore is a motion before the trial court to nullify your plea. I would assume that in the questions you were asked before entering that plea, is that you have given up any right to appeal. So the first thing is to...Read more »
Mid year, I withdrew my daughter from a private catholic school in Texas. I did so for personal reasons that didn’t involve her behavior or conduct.

Was given an appointment for sept 23 and I'm trying to teach my son to drive before he leaves for school in August. I'm unable to sit and wait hours because of my job How is everything else open but public service
Everything is open except "public service" (aka government jobs) because they make the rules. Welcome to government. You can teach your son to drive without them, but you'll need to deal with DPS to get him a license. The good news is that if he's old enough to drive,...Read more »
Getting a dismissal in a case like this isn't about filing motions and forms. The most likely path to dismissal will require a suppression hearing, the success of which is likely to depend on legal technicalities regarding the stop, the search, the arrest, and the transition from a traffic...Read more »

You can sue anyone for almost anything but that doesn't mean you can win. A lawsuit like this would never be a matter of Criminal Law even though it involves the administration of the county jail. This would be a matter of Civil Law and may need to include some sort of Civil Rights argument...Read more »
I paid for everything I purchased. I want to start off by stating that. I never once stole anything. These coupons are meant to be used along with our associate discount. I would take the points customers didn’t want and add them to my account. If an item I bought was 100$ then I would end up... Read more »
Paying a civil demand after the fact will not prevent criminal charges of theft or forgery. Sometimes the vendor will imply that they won't file criminal charges if you pay the civil demand... but they might anyway. Also, once it is reported to law enforcement the vendor can't dismiss...Read more »
Think about the person who led you to this "understanding" about Fauci's patents. That person is either ignorant or deliberately manipulating you. They are either stupid or evil. Either way, that person is not a reliable source of information. Stop listening to that person....Read more »
Sounds like he's somehow been enrolled in SAFP, an in-custody drug rehab. If you are saying that he can't begin the program until August, then that means that there isn't an available spot and he has to wait in line, while in prison, in order to get into the program and then...Read more »

When the original term of a lease expires and the tenant stays in the property, the tenant does so under the same terms as the original lease, but becomes a month to month tenant. Your lease appears to have an increased rent amount, but if you've been accepting rent under the old rate for 2-3...Read more »
The statute of limitations is a deadline to start a case or forever lose the right to start. It makes it so someone can't bring a case against you for something that happened a long time ago. You can get a general idea about by reading the Wikipedia page but for specifics, you'll need...Read more »
I used to just unzip my pants and pee. Now I’m being asked to completely drop my pants and expose everything. I refused to test because I felt extremely uncomfortable but I’m not worried about failing at all. I contacted my probation officer immediately after but haven’t heard back yet but... Read more »
It is not illegal to drop your pants to do a drug test. The crimes related to exposing your private areas are limited to doing that in public. If you feel uncomfortable, you might ask if they would be willing to do a hair drug test instead. It is my understanding that a hair test can detect drug...Read more »
It seems like you described a problem but didn't ask a question. Without knowing more, the main thing I can say is that making the payment ASAP is probably going to be the cheapest, easiest, quickest, and most painless way out of the situation.
A Texas attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a general matter, a court might look at what you lost by relying on your friend's assurance - a loan that it looks like you would not have qualified for anyway. It sounds like your friend might have made a...Read more »

Apt did not use contracted towing company as what’s listed in my contract and outside buildings. They will not tell me a reason my car was towed. Who ever took my car did not leave any information on where my car was taken to. They did not register my car as towed, so it has been stolen. I made a... Read more »
