My fiance is 3 days away from signing a 12.44 (a) which will reduce the amount of time he's incarcerated but will leave a "state jail felony" in his record. We are thinking on telling the lawyer to reset the court date because it was not fully explained to us the effects it will have on his immigration status and if in the future he will have difficulty re entering the country legally. Since a DWI with a minor is not an "aggravated felony" does he still have a chance to become legal and be admisable versus just being inadmisable for over 3 years?
This is an immigration law question. I am moving it there.

More likely than not Texas will find out about your OWI regardless of the State that it is from. For sure so too will...
I was 51 and even though I didn't feel intoxicated, I did feel I may be at or over the legal limit. So I pulled off the highway, called a friend and she was on her way when the cop pulled up behind me. He asked me to get out of the car (it was running but in park). I refused any of the roadside tests so I was arrested. When I went to court, the judge reduced to an Obstruction of the Highway, I paid $700 fine, and serviced 40 hours of community service. Two questions: When I fill out paperwork for a job application, do I have to admit I was arrested? Even though the charge for which I was arrested was dismissed.? 2nd: What are the chances of getting this expunged 3 1/2 years later. It is affecting my ability to gain employment. How do I get a pardon from the Govenor? Thank
You are under no legal obligation to be honest on job applications. However, if you are asked if you have ever been...
I was sleeping in the backseat of my truck with my keys out of the ignition and out of reach. An officer woke me up asked if I had been drinking, searched my truck, found an empty beer bottle, and ended up giving me a ride to a hotel. I wasn't presented a citation or warning and I haven't seen a police report filed, it has only been two days.
You were not operating the vehicle so you will not be charged. It was smart to take the Keyes out and not have the...
I had a wreck in July, wasn't arrested nor did I talk to any officer of the court.In Sept a warrant was issued for me for a dwi.
When the deputies found me I was hanging out the side of the truck unconscious.I never spoke with anyone.But in Sept the detective subpoenaed my blood work from the hospital and came back with a dwi.
This is not an uncommon course of events in a case where a person is transported to the hospital for injuries. You...
My ex wife has a DWI felony repetition against her and she has been on going on this for over a year and half now. She has an "inventory docket" court date set up in January. Can you tell me what that means? Thanks.
Inventory dockets are large dockets where a judge at the end of the year or a new judge coming into the court can...
