My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: Texas
For almost 8 weeks, I have been fighting with the DPS offices to approve my daughter's application for her hardship license. She rec'd her permit last July on her birthday. She'll be 16 on July 8, is currently a sophomore in high school and is taking college classes as well. She starts the May-Mini session on May 14 with class from 6-10pm and I am unable to get home from work in time to bring her to class. On June 4, she starts class that will be in the morning.
This is the documentation I provided:
signed letter from my boss, stating my work hours
verification of enrollment from her high school
her college transcript
her college schedule
a letter stating that I am a single mother and can not afford to lose my job to leave work and take her to class.
all the documents required from the DPS office, signed and notarized.
They denied me, stating that it is a convenience, not a hardship. The counselor's at her college have her on a schedule that the classes she takes in May and June are classes she has to have before she can take her Fall classes.
I now have to submit a petition with the county judge to appeal the DPS office's decision. I went to the judge's office today and was told that I have to have an attorney or paralegal draw up the petition, then file it with the county clerk's office so that it can go before the judge.
Again, I'm a single mother and really don't have the extra money to hire an attorney or paralegal to draw up the petition. Is there anywhere that I can get sample petitions and try to draw one up for myself?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
