A common question I get among my clients is whether or not they’re eligible for a DWI probation. Anyone charged with a DWI in Texas will be eligible to submit an application for a DWI probation.

If you’ve been arrested and charged for a DWI, the Texas Department of Public Safetly is actively working to suspend your drivers license. You will have 15 days to contest this from the date of the arrest.

If you’ve been charged with a DWI in Texas, it is important to contest the suspension of your driver’s license and it is critical to do everything you can to avoid a final conviction on your record.

If you’ve been charged with DWI in Texas, the consequences can be severe. First-time offenders can go to jail for 6 months and second-time offenders may go to jail for up to 1 year.

If you been charged with a DWI 1st offence, you’re facing 6 months in jail – that’s how severe the 1st charge will be. Depending on the facts of the case, your license may become suspended.

A DWI 2nd offense is a very serious charge. You’re facing a period of mandatory period jail time even if you received probation.

A DWI 3rd or more offense is classified as 3rd degree felony with a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

A common question that I get during this time of the year is “What is the difference between DWI vs DUI”. In Texas, the terms can differ compared to other states.

If it is your first DWI, you may be able to petition the court for deferred adjudication. This may include doing community service, supervision, probation or any other criteria they may ask you to do. After finishing the criteria, you may have the chance to dismiss your case and you won’t have a conviction for a DWI.

Don’t let your past hold you back. Clean records are the best records, there are 2 options available in Texas to clean up your record. The first option is an expunction, a court order to remove any records you may have. The second option is a petition for nondisclosure.
