I am on probation in Texas, only reason im here is for school. I graduate in a couple of weeks and want to go home and i am transfering my probation. I got a dwi thats why im on probation.

I'm deployed to Afghanistan. I tried to handle it before I left. I will not be home till end of July 2015 making it over 2 years sense the arrest. The court said I was OK to deploy handle it when I get home. But isn't there a statue of limitations on misdemeanor Crimes? My bac was 0.027 I'm facing a class A misdemeanor. I didn't sign anything to hold the case my lawyer said the court said I was good. I'm in the us army sitting over in Afghanistan stressing my home coming.

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...
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...
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...
