Thank you for your follow up.Unfortunately, if you get married to this woman, she will be subject to all the terms of her probation and would still have to follow all the restrictions and will have to seek her probation officer's permission for any activity that requires PO's permission.Unfortunately, you would not have any rights or standing whatsoever, as far as your future wife's probation and the PO does not have to discuss anything about your wife's probation or even speak with you about anything.I know this is not an answer you were hoping to hear, but please understand that I do have professional obligation to provide JustAnswer.com customers with correct answers, even when the answer is not favorable to the customer.
