I think you can get all that at the clerks office. You can also look up exact dates etc.

Thank you so much for this suggestion!!!!!! I was told that the forms are the same for the entire state so I was trying to do a google search to try and get a copy of them. My loved one obtained a copy of the form in the Law Library at the unit he is on but would have to hand write all the information himself and he has several to do for traffic tickets and know that would take a ton of time. I also wanted to send them to him so he could sign and send from the unit as well as send me signed copies in case something was "lost" in the mix - I would have a copy to file with the clerks office also just in case. I know I am very un-trusting but feel it is better to be safe than sorry.

Anyways, I wanted everyone to know that I have contacted the law library in the county clerks office and the forms are state wide meaning the state all uses the same forms for this process. Well she is going to be emailing them to me so I will have a copy. If anyone needs one hit me up.

I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed weekend and is having a wonderful start to their week.

Thanks for sharing that with us. You are not untrusting --- you are wise to make a copy of everything "just in case".

Confusedwife08 hasn't logged onto PTO in almost three years so she may not see your request.

Mrs. Low hasn't posted in well over two years so she also may not see your request.

Ya'll could try sending a PM. If they have e-mail set up to notify them that is still valid them maybe that would work.

Thanks for paying attnetion, Renee. I completely missed the attachment.

I'd also like to add that using a form is probably not necessary for traffic citations. Last time Robin was in she had a number outstanding in three different municipalities. I called each one and was told each time that all they needed from her was a letter identifying herself by name and birthdate stating that she was an inmate and at what unit and that she wasnted to plead guilty to any charges asking for jail time to run concurrent. She had no form and wrote exactly that in a letter and all three municipalities disposed of the cases.

It sounds like an easy out, and it is, but it also racks up points that could cost more money and cause other problems so simply pleaing guilty may not always be the best thing to do.

this ^^^

collateral consequences on Texas moving violations have changed in the past decade with the Driver Responsibility Program. Now there are surcharges on certain offenses as well as the points that, once they hit a certain level, can also impact driving privileges.

And, while there are provisions on the surcharges for indigency, that requires yet another form to be completed after which you cross your fingers and hope that it is granted. I've got one person I am working with that is in precisely that sort of a situation- there are surcharges for no-insurance tickets that they elected to dispose of by time-served, but a conviction is still a conviction. Hence, each one carried the surcharge of close to $250.00 (on top of the offense-related DL reinstatement fee that will be required with the mandatory suspension expired at the end of six months).

While seeking a time-served disposition can make sense, one must absolutely be aware of what else comes along with that disposition...

When dealing with the legal system or the government in general it's always best to dot every i, cross every t, make numerous copies, mail certified if possible and anything else you can do to cover ones ass.

Have you called to talk to the municipal court? It may very well be that they require no form. I posted above that three out of three municipalities I contacted about tickets my wife had outstanding when she was in prison required nothing but a letter from her with her basic information (name and date of birth) along with a statement that she would like to plead guilty to all outstanding charges and request jail time as punishment. That's exactly what she did and it was plenty good enough. So, I suggest that you call the courts involved to find out what they require and don't get hung on just yet on finding a form you may not need.

By the way, she didn't need to come up with cause numbers because they figured that out for her and no need to request "time served" because a sentence of what might be a few days in jail in lieue of fine will certainly be set to run concurrent with any other sentence as so will expire just that quick while the prison sentence is still in effect.

Default time served form

After all these years do you still have a copy of the form for time served?
texas district clerk's office and the court of record say they've never HEARD of it and it's making me crazy trying to find a copy of the form.
i know it's a lot to ask after all these years.
if you're like me, you have a file cabinet full of correspondence and copied information!!!

thanks so much for listening.

Motions of this nature are not generally done as a fill-in-the-blank. I don't even know if ProDocs has anything related to this (I don't use ProDocs). Given that Clerks in Texas (either County or District) rarely have any sort of fill-in-the-blank Motion outside of MAYBE a continuance request or the standard deferred paperwork on traffic tickets, it stands to reason they don't have one on hand.

There WAS a format offered in this thread, although since you reference District Clerk, that says this is in reference to a felony. Few Courts are going to allow a pending felony to just go away on a waived appearance and with credit for time served in another jurisdiction AND without competent counsel carrying the water on the deal.

If it is, in fact, for traffic tickets, then ALSO be sure to pay attention to the caveats about costs for the points that add to the record and surcharges for the conviction. A time-served disposition is STILL a conviction...

Here is the one my LO used, For traffic violations and also for a misdemeanor he had pending.

The misdemeanor we mailed directly to the district clerk office and they ended giving him a bench warrant and he got it resolved.

It cannot be stressed enough...time-served is NOT in the best interest of the offender. They will be saddled with surcharges. They are FAR better served seeking to have a date set post-release that then gives them an opportunity to get some tossed without time-served dispositions and in a manner that does not result in a conviction.

He actually didn't have any surcharges. He also applied for the Indigent program and it was granted.


As far as his misdemeanor He beat the case so it was worked out and also took away his detainer. I'm sure that doesn't always happen but in this case it did.
