Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
What state are you in and why are you asking?
Based upon what I can tell, and I am not a Texas lawyer it means that he is on probation May of 2008 until Sept. 2009.
I imagine there is another question hanging around in here and if so, go ahead and answer otherwise, press the accept button.
I hope this helps.
You are correct, I do have another question or two. Is there any way I can find out what he is on probation for? He is my ex-husbands new wifes cousin. Regardless, my main question is:
1 - Should I give this info to the judge?
2 - Does fully probated suspension mean that he is on probation, or that he is suspended from practicing until his time period is up(9/09)
I don't know if you can find out what he is on probation for. I would suggest that you contact The State Bar of Texas at:
If they can tell you why he is on probation, they will.
I would also suggest that you ask the State Bar of Texas the same question you are asking me about what fully probated suspension means.
If it means he is currently suspended then by all means you need to bring it to the attention of the judge as well as the State Bar of Texas.
Ohio does not use the same designation as Texas. I did research online in Texas cases to come up with an assumption.
Ohio is pretty clear in its designations. Ohio it would be suspended or Suspended from the practice of law for x, with conditions or a public reprimand.
That is why I struggled as first. You could just take a chance and advise the judge of what you found and request that he advise the court the terms and the issues.
