What are the after-effects of having a Section 12 filed against you if you are over the age of 18? Does it follow you for the rest of your life as something that shows up on background checks? Do you have to include that in employment or university applications?

Dear Customer,

This is not really a Homework question. I will try to send this question to the Legal Experts. I can answer it, however, I am only allowed to answer Homework questions. The Moderators will decide ultimately which category it should be in. If it returns to this category, I would be more than happy to answer your question for you.

Thank you and just a moment. I'm going to try to get this into the Legal Section.

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.
