Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating (click here for more info) so all that means is that you can count on me to help today.

Could you provide a little bit of background as to what an "informant contract" is?

I don't know how to help him he has to have rights
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Interesting. This is highly unusual. Do you know what he is supposed to be an informant of at all?

drug dealers and any case that they need him
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

That's very strange. So, it's not generally illegal for any employer to require that an employee do or not do certain things as a condition of their employment. If, as a condition of his employment, the employer requires that he report information about drug dealers, then that is something that your husband would be bound to do by the terms of the contract.

well immigration agents are the ones making him do it
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

Interesting. To be honest, this is not something that I am familiar with and I think I would be doing a disservice to you if I continued on with this discussion. What I can do is opt out of this discussion and let another expert, maybe one that specializes in immigrant issues, take over for me so they can assist you. Thanks and I apologize sincerely.

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
