Can my probation officer come to my work and introduce

Customer Question
Can my probation officer...

Can my probation officer come to my work and introduce himself as my probation officer?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Lewisville, Texas.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Only because my probation officer revoked my probation

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I reported my probation officer to the director of probation for incompetency. Immediately after this (two days), he started making my life miserable. This includes coming to my work and introducing himself as my probation officer (not common knowledge at work).

Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

Unfortunately, there is no law that says probation can't come to your job. In fact, you will probably find that you have agreed to that as part of the rules of your probation. They are allowed, in general, to come to your home without advance notice or a warrant and to check out your job as well.

That said, what he did was not nice, as it may cost you your job. There's nothing, however, to prevent him from doing it.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
