Texas Name Change Petitions Must Satisfy the Requirements of Section 45 of the Texas Family Code

pardon forms
by ttstam

A recent decision by the Texas Court of Appeals for the Seventh District (Amarillo) underscores how important it is for name change applicants to provide all of the information required by the Texas Family Code. In a recent published decision, the court denied petitioner’s name change petition because petitioner failed to set forth whether or not he had complied with the Family Code provisions applicable to petitioners with prior felony convictions.

In Texas, the forms that are required for both adult and child name change petitions are straightforward. Chapter 45 of the Texas Family Code governs petitions for change of name of children and adults. For adults, the verified petition requirements include, among other things, a statement of whether the petitioner has been convicted of a felony. Notably, in Texas, a felony conviction does not preclude someone from changing there name. Where a petitioner has been convicted of a felony, a Texas court may a permit the requested name change provided that the petitioner establishes that he has: (a) received a certificate of discharge by the Pardons and Paroles Division of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice; or (b) completed a period of probation ordered by a court and not less than two years have passed from the date of the receipt of discharge or completion of probation; or (c) been pardoned. These requirements are set forth in the Texas Family Code, Section 45.103(b).

Although individuals with felony convictions may encounter greater scrutiny in the name change process, their petitions may be granted if they establish, in their petitions, compliance with the foregoing requirements of Section 45.103(b).

For persons who do not have felony convictions, the courts in Texas are usually quite accommodating with regard to name change requests. An application for a change of name by an adult is controlled by subchapter B of Chapter 45 of the Texas Family Code. Section 45.102 sets out the requirements of a petition requesting a change of name. The petition must include (1) the present name and place of residence of the petitioner; (2) the full name requested by the petitioner; (3) the reason the change in name is requested; and (4) a statement whether the petitioner has been the subject of a final felony conviction. Tex. Fam. Code Ann., Section 45.102.

Texas’ liberal approach to name change petitions is set forth in the Family Code, which states that “the court shall order a change of name under this subchapter for a person other than a person with a final felony conviction if the change is in the interest or to the benefit of the petitioner and in the interest of the public.”

Given the permissive approach toward name change that is set forth in the Texas Family Code, it is not surprising that if a name change petition includes all of the required information, it is likely to be granted.

This is my song about how I feel on the impact rap has on society and how it promotes the negative of a culture. Conversely, they bury the positive which leads our youth to believe money is more important than God and that rappers are people we should look up to. NOT!! This is Death of Rap, enjoy. Download my mixtape – www.zshare.net Lyrics: I had to do it, I had to do it! Those who dont know me, welcome dont be surprised by the lyrics, this is what I do. Sankritz wat up! Yeah, yeah uh. Verse 1: Welcome me, Im arguably/ The most known unknown oddity/ & possibly the shooter & the target so pardon me/ An arm & g doesnt ring true like an arm & hammer/ I kick every rappers head through the f*in banister/ I laugh at yalls attempts to be lyrical/ Cus from ya locale I bet its hard to buy a vowel/ Let alone all the drugs you say youve moved miles/ Im hostile like an Afghani who hates democracy/ Honestly I set fire to the aristocracy/ That rules the majority/ But the stupid audience forms an o-pinion/ Based on who I was targeting/ You call the fire I set a form of arson/ But awesome I think it be unlike an STD/ Youll get that hidden metaphor later/ Im the instrument of dissonance/ But I compromise myself with this phrase of sickness/ Usually when I spit I cause genre music eulogys/ But rheumatoid arthritis will halt the cruise of any MC/ You asses will get that assonance later/ Damn I gave my heat away like I was Darth Vader/ He sounded like he had dragon breath/ Whats funny is I

Question by : Were the founding fathers and other leaders a bunch of conspiracy theorists?
“I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.
Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the government at defiance. The
issuing power (of money) should be taken away from the banks and restored to the people to
whom it properly belongs.” — Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President.

“History records that the money changers have used every form of abuse, intrigue, deceit, and violent means possible to maintain their control over governments by controlling money and it’s issuance.” — James Madison

“Fireams stand next in importance of the Constitution itself.
They are the American people’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence.” – General Washington

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.” – Thomas Jefferson

Americans have the right and advantage of being armed – unlike the citizens of othe counties
whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.- James Madison

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, at last resort,
to protect themselves against tyranny in government. -Thomas Jefferson

“The bank, Mr. Van Buren, is trying to kill me, but I will kill it.” Andrew Jackson

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.” — Benjamin Franklin

” America will never be destroyed from outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” – Abraham Lincoln

“Whoever controls the volume of money in any country is absolute master of all industry and
commerce.” — James A. Garfield

“Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin

“… God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty…. And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.” – Thomas Jefferson

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government.” – Patrick Henry

“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. . . . corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.” – Abraham Lincoln

“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the Government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson — and I am not wholly excepting the Administration of W. W. The country is going through a repetition of Jackson’s fight with the Bank of the United States — only on a far bigger and broader basis.” – FDR

“I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world no longer a Government by free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of a small group of dominant men.” -Woodrow Wilson

“All problems, depressions, wars, disasters, assassinations, all of them were planned, caused, instigated, and implemented by the International Bankers and their attempt to establish a central bank in every country in the world, which they have now done, thanks to corrupt politicians who have been bought and paid for. This is all you need to know about the history of the world.” – JFK
Clearly, these men were a bunch of tin foil hat wearing, nut-job conspiracy theorists, am I right?

What is Lent?

March 8, 2011. Lent is the 40 days before Easter during which Christians prepare for the Passion, Death and Resurrection of Jesus. It’s meant to remember the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert preparing himself for public preaching. It begins on Ash Wednesday, when a priest places ashes on the head or forehead of Catholics and invites them repent. The ashes come from the olive branches that were blessed on Palm Sunday from the previous year. Every Friday of Lent, the Catholic Church asks everyone to not eat meat as a sign of penance. They also hold a fast on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The Church also urges Christians to practice other forms of piety such as giving alms, making a pilgrimage or any other willful deprivation to prepare for Easter. We are at the beginning of Lent: a time of penance, purification and conversion. It is not an easy program, but then Christianity is not an easy way of life. It is not enough just to be in the Church, letting the years roll by. In our life, in the life of Christians, our first conversion — that unique moment which each of us remembers, when we clearly understood everything the Lord was asking of us — is certainly very significant. But the later conversions are even more important, and they are increasingly demanding. To facilitate the work of grace in these conversions, we need to keep our soul young; we have to call upon our Lord, know how to listen to him and, having found out what has gone wrong, know how to ask his pardon

Success in California with Ricky Nelson Now unemployed in Memphis, Johnny also decided to try his luck in California. He and a friend, Joe Campbell, hitched down to the West Coast. Here they joined Dorsey and with their past differences forgotten, the brothers attempted to resurrect The Rock and Roll Trio, by sending for Paul Burlison. He joined them briefly, but decided to return to Memphis and concentrate on his electrical business. Dorsey and Johnny continued with their song writing activities, but Dorsey continued with his day job as an electrician to pay the family expenses. The Burnettes’ brashness got them their first success in the music business in California. On arriving in Los Angeles, Joe Campbell bought a copy of A Map To The Stars which showed the location of the teen idol Ricky Nelsons home. In an effort to get their songs to him, the Burnettes and Campbell decided to sit on the steps of the stars home until they could get a meeting with him. This persistence worked and Ricky was sufficiently impressed with their work, that he wound up recording many of their songs including “Believe What You Say You Say”, “Its Late” and “Waitin’ In School” amongst others. Other Imperial Records artists, such as Roy Brown, benefited from their songwriting abilities.
