    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.

    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.

    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.

  • If a Texas District Attorney`s office rejects a case, do the records all need to be expunged?

    Arrested for retaliation and resisting arrest da`s office rejected the charges.

    Robert’s Answer

    • Selected as best answer

    Yes you must hire a lawyer and file a petition to expunge these records. There is no automatic expunction for arrests in Texas. Whatever arrest records there are (bond paperwork, mugshot etc), are all public record until the expunction is granted. Our firm offers free consultations on all expunctions. However, a rejected case may have time limits that apply as to when you can file for an expunction. We can go over your options and let you know how to get these records destroyed as quickly as possible.
