This is my 2nd dwi. My 1st one was like 15 years ago when I was a teenager. The trip is to Greece with a tour group for 9/10 days.
I agree with the other attorneys that your question lacks detail. I am going to answer your question assuming that you already have a lawyer working on the case. I am also going to assume that you do not just want to go in there and plead guilty. That can be done much quicker than fighting your case. From experience I can tell you that fighting a DWI takes time. Especially if there is a blood draw, it takes time to get the evidence. In Harris County, it can take over 90 days before blood results are in. You need to meet with your lawyer, and make sure that the two of you are on the same page as far as the direction your case is heading. Everyone would like a dismissal, but if the state is unwilling to dismiss, then sometimes your only option is to go to trial.See question

You will need to file an expunction. In Harris County they want you to wait until the statute of limitations has expired. I believe the statute of limitations for DWI is two years. As far as your job application is concerned, if they ask if you've ever been arrested for anything at all -the answer is yes. If they ask if you've ever been convicted, the answer is no. Hope this helps.See question
Subsequent criminal hearing
The blood test can only be used against you in the guilt/innocence portion of the criminal proceeding, if it is offered by a party, and admitted into evidence. For the blood results to be admissible, the state must prove that the results are relevant,reliable, and otherwise admissible in your case. Only your lawyer, who has examined all of the evidence in your case,will know the answer to that question. Hope this helps.See question

Can u get a passport with a dwi felony
Yes, you should be able to. If your plan is to visit Canada, check before you go. There are restrictions on visitation and immigration with a DWI conviction. Hope this helps.See question
Can I still ask for occupational license if I don't go to the alr court date. Will I be in trouble with the court if I don't go to alr?
You will not be held in contempt. Whether you are eligible for an occupational license depends on whether you have an essential need for a license in the performance of your occupation or trade, or to attend school, or to perform essential household duties. If you have a prior DWI conviction within 5 years, you will have to wait a year before any occupational license will be in effect. Hope this helps.See question
I got my license taken up by police for dui (minor). I was given a driving permit. I had a phone hearing and decision. I have a 60 day suspesnion, what would be the day that the suspenions "starts". Thanks
The suspension "starts" the day the Administrative Decision is rendered. Hope this helpsSee question
I had sat out the dwi when i recived it
I agree with Mrs. Kosub. You "sat out your DWI", which means you took jail time instead of probation. Even if you were a repeat offender, any suspension you would have received should be over by now. As the other lawyers mentioned, you have to pay a $125.00 reinstatement fee to DPS. You can go online now to check the status of your license. I suggest that would be a great place to start. Here's the link: https://txapps.texas.gov/txapp/txdps/dleligibility/login.do Good luck.See question
Have been in the program for almost 1 year, fines are paid, have about 250 left to pay the school
Ask your probation officer in California for suggestions. I think you are going to have to complete the California program in order to get your license out of suspension in California, which is a prerequisite to getting a license in Texas. Reason - Texas will honor the California suspension. Although a Texas DWI Education course may satisfy the court, I'm just not sure it will satisfy the California DMV.
Hope this helps.
I received the dwi in december and the trail is still going on, I have not gotten a lawyer yet simply because I do not have the funds as of now. I was wondering if I have to get an attorney to be eligible for deferred adjudication, as this is my f...
Deferred adjudication went by the wayside in the early 80's. As Cordt mentioned, Pre Trial Diversion offers the benefit of a dismissal, if it is successfully completed, as well as the opportunity for expunction of your arrest record. If your case was filed in Harris County, your BAC must be below .15, and you can't have ANY prior arrests. You also must have had valid liability insurance at the time of your arrest, and there must not have been an accident involving substantial property damage, or injury. The decision to offer this program is entrusted to Wonderland Hudson at the Harris County District Attorney's Office. You will definitely need a lawyer to handle this for you. Of course, all of this assumes your case should be plead. You and your lawyer should first evaluate all of the evidence in your case, to determine whether pleading guilty is in your best interest.
