  • Does he have to take the lie detector test?

    My daughter got herself in trouble and decided instead of dealing with the punishment she was going to say that someone sexually hurt her. CPS and the police got involved. They are both stating that they do not believe her and that she is unreliab...

    Robert’s Answer

    That someone needs to hire a lawyer immediately. We have helped many suspects in someone's situation. You should not have someone take this polygraph until they retain counsel. Many polygraphs are actually a setup so the police can try to coerce a confession.

    I was recently contacted by CPS about a reports someone made against me for leaving my two children, ages 13 years and 4 months, alone at home. I feel this is a false report. Can I find out who made the report and is there anything I can do abou...

    Robert’s Answer

    CPS reports are confidential so it's nearly impossible to find out who made them. What can you do? If you are being investigating by CPS, even if it's a false complaint, hire a local lawyer to deal with them.

    I would consult with a family lawyer immediately. You can call the police, but computer crimes are difficult to solve and/or investigate for many smaller department. I'm not sure Forney PD is well equipped to combat computer crimes. This might be different, but still, with a lawyer helping you I'd expect you will some areas to litigate.

    Move to Colorado. Texas is a terrible state to live in if you smoke pot. Our State's pot laws are idiotic, and Kaufman County will love to put on probation or diversion and take your time, money, and freedom. Really, if it's something you enjoy, don't live here if you can help it. I have told many clients that it's too dangerous to keep hiring me to defend them, and to leave for greener pastures.

    Robert’s Answer

    You should meet with a local attorney immediately to discuss your options. They will want to review your medical records to determine if you can sue. If you have any medical records bring those to your consult.

  • I'm pregnate and due in June I have text where her father says he don't want her and wants nothing to do with her

    Will it look good in court for me

    Robert’s Answer

    It could help in a court hearing, but you will need a lawyer to establish custody, visitation, and child support. If you can't afford a lawyer contact the Attorney General after the child is born. They are free, but slow and very busy. If you want to terminate his rights, it will take a lot more than a text message and you will need an attorney.

  • I came up with an Idea and have done all the leg work, my dad agreed to put $20K up for 20%

    A year later, I have continued to do all the leg work and have used his $20K to make prototypes etc and so far all I have invested is sweat equity...We just formed an LLC stating him as a 20% and me 80% owners with him investing $20K and me $0. Th...

    Robert’s Answer

    If you formed an LLC these should be questions your lawyer can answer. If you don't have a lawyer, you need one and most offer free consultations. Owning shares in a company doesn't mean you owe a % on all the expenses/bills etc. It appears your dad bought 20% of the company for $20k, if you need another $100k you can consider selling more % of the company, but nothing obligates your dad to put in more money for the 20% he already owns. It's his.

    For example, I own few paltry shares in Google, but they don't send me a bill for their office supplies etc. What I get as a shareholder are dividends. If you want to bring in another investor I'd hire an attorney to help set go over the agreement and help you answer these questions. It's better to get things done right early, than to pay for litigation down the road. Also, get an accountant if you don't have one.

    Our drop off and pick up location is Mcdonalds, the custodial parent refuses to pick up or drop off our children at the designated location per the decree. I have several police reports to support the fact even my children constantly say that they...

    Robert’s Answer

    You need to file a motion to enforce and modify the orders you have, and you'll need a lawyer to do that. If the children are in danger, then call CPS immediately.

  • On parole and im supposed to go to rehab for 3 failed test. What happens if I dont go? Will I get more time?

    I have a year on parole left.

    Robert’s Answer

    Why wouldn't you go? Do you want to go back to prison? Yes, the parole board can almost certainly will issue and blue warrant and ship you back to TDCJ if you ignore them. It's a bad idea.
