I was in the military in Virginia and now live in Texas. While in Virginia in 2007 I was found guilty for DUI. I paid the fine and did the military equivelent to a state alcohol abuse program(ASAP) but the Virginia Beach court has no proof of me attending ASAP classes. I had no knowledge of this until recently. In 09/2008 a capias was filed for my failure to appear. Hearing information was 09/2011 and says result: finalized and final disposition: fugitive file. I called the county clerk and she said the capias is now inactive and sounded as if I really didnt need to worry about it. I did a "BeenVerified" check on myself and found it was no longer on my criminal record. Will it show up on a pre-employment background check in Tx? FYI I got my DL renewed in 2012 in Tx w/out issues.
This is a very hard question to answer because it depends on what service is running the background check and what,...

I got my car stuck in a ditch and I had to ditch my car because I had a few drinks before the happening. It was towed to a storage and towing facility.

Got a DWI July 2012 and was found guilty in May 2013. The state I received the DWI in was NJ. Will be moving to Texas in 2016. Since NJ only reports the DWI as an infraction on your license (it is not a misdemeanor or a felony), how will this transfer to Texas that reports it as a misdemeanor? Will I receive a "NEW" misdemeanor? It would be best if a lawyer who is from NJ/TX or has experience with either state's DMV answer this question.
As long as your license is clear you should have no problem getting a Texas license. A criminal background check will...
giving for the simple fact that it comprises my family's security. I can understand why they need my pay stubs for employment verification purposes but why my bank acct. info? I have already paid ALL court fees and costs in my first month of probation and don't understand why Harris county and the DPS is being so adamant about knowing what my financial status is. I have no child support, no fines/fees outstanding from any entity including IRS and no debts of any kind!.. I have not applied for any type of assistance/aid in my life and never will (God Willing). I cannot wrap my head around why this county and those affiliated with them are so heel bent on getting my bank acct. info. Is this even legal? I REFUSE to give these entry level "thugs" my bank accts for their own leisure. Pls advise
Read your conditions of probation. If you are complying you do not have anything to worry about, If you d o not...
Arrested for PI in November 2014, had a court date in December 14, but as I am not a US citizen (I work abroad and visit my brother 4-6 times a year), I got the date moved so that I could come and sort it out. I was going to plead no contest but after reading about it, it is much the same as guilty. I was approximately 200 yards from where I was staying and was arrested. The problem for me if I have a conviction it affects me when I go through immigration (I am a UK citizen). I have been coming to the US since 1997 and I don't want this minor incident to affect me seeing my brother and his family and with the job I have I may, in the future be relocated here. My court date is in 1 week, do I have an chance of getting it dismissed.
If you believe this case could have immigration consequences for you, then you most certainly need to hire a criminal...
