Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Yeah no fear of violations.
But can they legally open the door on their own and come on in univited?
I might be home by myself. If I came out the my room and discovered them there unannoucned and going thru my house, seems like I could just tackle them if I don't kow who it is. Its my house and I haven't signed anything away. It seems like they would at the very least the probation office would have to inform me of this condition and have some type of acceptance.
If she is not home do I have to let them in to search? Or even answer the door?
I know they won't break it down if I don't answer. If I'm there by myself and its my house it seems like all bets would be off and they would have to come back when she is there.
Can you direct me to a site or place to see this in writting? I've viewed her probation order but nothing in there applies to me.
I get that if I don't agree (verbally or in writting) she'd have to move. It's just like this conditon is supposed to be accepted without any proper documentation to the actual property owner/individual nor is there any fair warning. Where is the good faith effort to inform indiviuals of civil rights being taken away under these circumstances? Its hard for me to believe that this is possible.
