    I would suggest you check your eligibility for a Texas Drivers License by following the link I have posted below.

    It will tell you everything you need to get your license and if you need help accomplishing some of those tasks you can hire an attorney to walk you through it.

  • Is it normal practice for the court system to resolve different charges from same arrest in different courts

    2 different charges being taken care of in different courts. Actually on the 1st charge a plea deal had been done. An indictment was just filed on the 2nd charge, which is 1 yr later.

    Robert’s Answer

    Based on the information you have provided, you should really contact an attorney because as the person above this has stated... they should be in the same court. We really need more information because when you say the plea deal has been done it doesn't give enough information.

    One of your easiest courses of action would be to contact the department of code compliance for the city that you live in and ask them to come to your apartment to conduct an inspection.

  • I didn't give a 24 hour written notice to my tenant to enter the property. How much can she sue me for.

    A few weeks ago I decided to sell my house in Killeen Tx and wanted to take pictures so my Realtor can put it on the market. So I called her and asked if she would sign a agreement to enter the house. She said no. So my Realtor and I knocked on t...

    Robert’s Answer

    If she does end up suing you then it is highly unlikely that she will 'take your house' but depending on what your lease with her says then she might be trying to stay in the house rather than allow you to force her out and sell it. You should contact an attorney to make sure she doesn't try to sabotage your sale.

  • Misdemeanor class a family violence in dallas texas

    I was arrested for family violence but charges were never filed. An affidavit of non-prosecution was done and my girlfriend was told by the initial investigator that charges will not be filed. However, the case is still in court and keeps being re...

    Robert’s Answer

    The DA has discretion on whether to file or not. If might be wise to hire a criminal defense attorney to monitor the case for you. It also will matter whether you paid with a bail bondsman or put up cash. Just because they haven't filed does not mean they will not. The arrest will always remain on your record unless you get a non-disclosure.
