I was just wondering if someone is on parole with 1 year

i was just wondering if someone is on parole with 1 year left and no violations or positive U.A.'s, and they want to go to Their family time share in mexico for their mom & dad to renew their vows, does CBP ask for a note from your P.O. or can they see that you are on parole?JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TEXASJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: My father in law is a retired attorney but in New Orleans. He still has the firm named after him, however he is retired and is 82 and has dementia.......so no i haven't talked to a Texas lawyer, but i have friends (lots of them) that work for CBP in texas. but I don't want them to know this person is on parole. but I do know a lady (In Texas) that is on parole for shooting and killing her son (she said it was self defense, but i wasn't there) and she has traveled out of the country 6 times with no problem. she never let her officer know she was going and went and came back with no problems at all.........so i wouldn't think they ask for anything or can see that info. and that is a murder charge and I'm asking about someone who just had a drug charge but is clean and on minimal security and only has to report once every 3 months. what do you think>????JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No.. like i said, no dirty UA's or Violations while on parole and is off in 1 year left on paper come July 26thJA: OK.

In 2001 while on vacation in Arizona, my husband and I had a

in 2001 while on vacation in Arizona, my husband and I had a fight, and I called 911 because he pushed me and I was scared. He spent the night in jail and subsequently lost his gun rights. He wants to get them restored, but his was a misdemeanor conviction in another state and we are not sure where to start, if we can do it on our own or need to hire someone or what. The crazy thing is that since then I have gotten my conceal carry permit and I own a revolver AND we live in the same house so he has access to it but he's not supposed to have a gun. If I were worried, I wouldn't still be living with him. We are coming up on 36 years married and thankfully he has learned to not be violent when he's angry. I guess he didn't enjoy that night in jail. Please advise me what to do and where to go from here. Thanks!
