    In Texas, if the assault involved a family member and was dismissed via completion of deferred adjudication you will never be able to remove it from your record, even if it was dropped to a class c misdemeanor. However if it was just a simple assault dismissed thru sucessful completion of deferred adjudication you are able to hide the public record by filing a certificate of non-disclosure.

  3. If i have a house full of children and they never saw me slap a child can they be witnesses in court.

    If the other kids didn't see the slap then they will be limited to collateral issues and not the case in chief - did she or didn't she slap the kid. Assault of a child enhanced by a previous assault is very serious and has the potential for significant jail time. Hire a lawyer as soon as possible!

    You can wait, cross your fingers, set it for trial and hope the arresting officer does not show. Most courts will dismiss if the cop doesn't show. However, the court might reset the case requiring you to show countless times thus wasting many hours of your cherished time. If you hire a strong attorney the court will be less inclined to bully you, which, in the long run will save you money,not to mention saving your reputation as well. Good luck!

    Pretrial diversion is a contact with he sentencing court that you will stay out out of trouble for a year. Being sexually assaulted doesn't give the victim a license to steal. You might come up with a better reason for your arrest, otherwise you run the risk of angering the judge and prosecutor.

    Sounds to me like you are truly indigent. If the judge made you sign an indigent question and answer sheet, under oath, then you should be taken at your word and assigned a public defender. In this case it could be the judge didn't believe you or didn't like your attitude. As long as you've been truthful I'd give it another shot. Good luck!

  9. What evidence do I need to get my child back?

    Go back to the original court order, read it then ask yourself, did she violate any of the provisions? If she did, bring it to the attention of the presiding judge via your lawyer. In regards to the injunction or is it a protective order, gather as many witnesses as you can, woodshed them and set it for a hearing as long as they can back up your evidence. Don't tally on this as time is of the essence.
