I'm not the father, now what?

Has a DNA test proved you are NOT the father? You still have rights. Under the new Texas Family Code laws, if a DNA test proves you are not the father then you do NOT have to pay child support. BUT you still may have visitation rights with the child if you have previously established a relationship with the child. The law now distinguishes that it is in the best interest of the child to continue the relationship with the "father" but not imposing the responsibilities and duties onto a man who was likely duped into believing he was the father.

Divorcing and have children? Know your rights!

Contrary to popular belief, there is no favoritism or preference for mothers. Each parent can ask to be a Joint Managing Conservator. That means each parent has the EXACT same rights as to raising the children.
Can you have equal time with your children? Absolutely!
Does either parent have to be given the exclusive right to designate residence? Not necessarily! Do you have to pay child support? Not necessarily!
It is imperative that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible once you think you may be headed toward divorce. These are just a few of the many important issues that will affect you and your family for a lifetime.
Call today to find out how you can protect yourself and your children in the event of a divorce. Know your rights! Know your responsibilities!

Mandatory Blood Draw Every Weekend in 2011!!

DA Susan Reed has mandated that if you are arrested for a DWI then you will automatically be subjected to a blood draw to determine your blood alcohol level. Can she do this?
What does this mean for you? What rights do you have? If a cop asks you if you have been drinking then you should be alert that he is investigating you for a possible DWI. In most cases when this process has begun, the cop is looking to arrest you and will likely arrest you. Admit nothing.  Say NO to the breathalyzer. Say NO to the blood draw. Say NO to the field sobriety tests. Ask for your attorney. They will still withdraw you blood, however keep saying NO. Then let us fight for your rights in court. Be polite to the officer and anyone else you come into contact with or your actions can be interpreted as additional evidence that you are intoxicated.

ALR Hearings

You have 15 days from the date of your DWI arrest to request this hearing. The purpose of this hearing is to preserve your driver's license. However, it is more important to use this hearing to cross-examine your police officer. This is your opportunity to lock the officer into his testimony by asking him questions about why he pulled you over, how he conducted his field sobriety tests, and how you performed on those tests. This is our best evidence at trial! Do not delay in contacting me so that I can timely request this hearing and protect your interests.

Mandatory Blood Draw Weekend!

District Attorney Susan Reed has established this weekend, October 22-24, 2010, as mandatory blood draw weekend. You can say no to the breath test and field sobriety tests but if you refuse the blood draw, she will get a warrant and immediately take you to the hospital and take your blood AGAINST YOUR WILL!!! What do you do? Continue to say no and ask for your attorney. Let us fight for you and against this policy in court! And ALWAYS BE NICE AND POLITE TO THE COP despite saying no.
