CAN COURT SUMMONS BE RECEIVED AND I BE MADE TO GO TO COURT NEXT DAY or 2 WITHOUT BEING ABLE TO SECURE LAWYER ?
Ex can take custody issue back to court this month. He refuses to take drug test for me and I have this order in divorce decree to have him tested 2 times a year but he states he is taking his own drug test in a bigger city. He needs to prove he is drug free . I am afraid he is going to have someone else take his place for test and that is why he is unwilling to take a test I am asking for. If he is clean for his test, should not have problem taking one that I asked for too. Thing is, he wants to take it back to court as soon as he get results. Can he have me served and for me to appear in court within 1-2 days of being served without my having been able to retain a lawyer and have my case be ready to present case against what he is asking for?
Yes if you are served with a summons you must appear in Court with or without a lawyer.
2nd Motion to Revoke Felony DWI Probation
When a 2nd Motion to Revoke probation is filed on a person during one probation period, this one being for Felony DWI probation, what are the chances they will just get a slap on the wrist again? I know a person who has continued to drink, mix pills with alcohol, hang out in bars, go work out of state, etc. because he believes he is above the law, authority, and no one will run his life. A textbook narcissist who has bled evil and chaos into a lot of our lives the past few years, and he's sitting in jail right now in Galveston Co. with a Motion to Revoke his probation (it's a page long list, but nothing directly related to being drunk), the first one they filed 3 years ago during his first year on probation for being caught driving under the influence of pills and it looks like they basically let it go, based on public records. Surely this time they will be harsher punishment, thoughts?
Thoughts? People can only get so far before the hammer comes down and they are sent to prison.
What do I need to do about this drug citation
The police pulled me and my four friends over in galveston. They did not tell me why they pulled me over but they had all of us get out of the car they asked each of us if they would find drugs in the car if they look everyone said they wern't sure. We had been hanging out on the beach previously smoking blunts and we worn't sure if there was any in the vehicle they never asked to search my car they just sat all of us down on the curb and started going through everything. They found a very small amount of weed in a baggie. The police officer then targeted each of us with insulting and triggering comments until he got a reaction from my friend who back talked trying to defend herself, they then arrested her, although she was not read her rights and was charged with not wearing a seatbelts and given a fine. Im hoping to bring whatever fines there may be for my citation down due to all of the mistakes they made. Is that possible? I've never been in trouble with the law and I have no idea where to start.
