HERE ARE YOUR OPTIONS IF CHARGED WITH A DWI IN TEXAS
PREPARE FOR LICENSE SUSPENSION
If you actually are guilty of driving while impaired, then you are going to have to prepare for going several months without driving your own vehicle. In Texas, the minimum license suspension is typically 90 days.
Some people may not be prepared for this reality and may have to find other accommodation to get to and from work. That can especially be the case if someone is a sole provider for their family and they lose the ability to drive to work.
The best advice here would be to make other arrangements for your daily life as soon as possible. This will last at least three months in Texas, but depending on the severity of your DWI, it could last a lot longer.
MINIMUM JAIL TIME
PREPARE FINANCIALLY IF CHARGED WITH A DWI
A DWI charge typically ends up costing the accused thousands of dollars, and you may not be prepared for all of the expenses that go into it.
There is the fine itself, lawyer fees for someone to represent you, the increase in your car insurance cost, and more.
The best thing that you can do is be as aware as possible that if you are found guilty of a DWI, you are going to need several thousand dollars to pay off all of your bills. Prepare for this as early as possible and start saving money to pay for this.
