I called the cops on my husband, told police just escort him out the house, didnt press any charges, but they arrested him for family assault. Protective order was issued, now hes back into the house. His case was rescheduled twice. Next court day is 145 days after the day he was arrested. Is it true case drops after 90 days?
No, that's not true. If he doesn't have a lawyer, he needs one.
I intend this answer to be for general information only and it should not be substituted for advice from an experienced local lawyer who can investigate your situation fully. My practice area spans primarily across South and Central Texas. If you want to retain my services for a different part of the state, I will have to charge you for my travel, and it will likely be more cost-effective to retain local counsel.

No. A case is not dismissed after 90 days. Your husband needs to hire a lawyer
He needs an attorney to fight hard to get these charges dropped. They won’t be dropped after 90 days. You can also have an attorney try to lift the residence restriction on the protective order. If he is caught in the house, he could face an additional charge of violation of protective order. My speciality is family assaults. Yes oh need to hire an attorney now to protect your husband and fight for a dismissal and to lift the protective order.
