This question is best answered by an attorney who practices DWI law in Austin. There are several Austin DWI lawyers who post regularly here, and they can best answer your question, as all judges have different proclivities. In Houston, you could have the in-home device removed if you had the interlock device installed in your vehicle. Typically, it is an either or proposition. There is only one judge I can think of, who routinely requires both. Hope this helps

My answer is based upon the limited amount of information supplied in your question. The answers I give on this site are intended for general educational purposes only.

Most judges will only require one device. Obviously you need to hire a DWI attorney. That person will be able to advise you.
