Can I Be A Probation Officer With A Deferred Felony?
I Got A Felony A Few Years Back, That Was Deferred Upon Completion Of Court Orders. I Have Always Wanted To Be A Probation Officer And Want To Know If My Felony Means I Can No Longer Be A Government Employee. Please Only Those With Experience/Knowledge Answer This Question...
A felony conviction will most likely make you ineligible of getting the job, some states might depending on the seriousness of the felony, check with the different states.
A deferred felony means that you were still convicted of the charge and was part of the plea agreement. Though some felonies can be sealed from your records once dismissed but when finding jobs with the state or national government these agencies still have the right to take into account your felony.
Though there might be a chance in some states to get a job, chances will be very slim I would recommend finding another career that you will like to do and try to see if you can get your felony conviction sealed.

In the common law, civil law refers to the area of law involving relations between private individuals as well as between people and organizations, which through incorporation, take on the legal status of individuals. Civil law, in this sense, is usually referred to in comparison to criminal law, which is that body of law involving the state against individuals (including incorporated organisations) where the state relies on the power given it by statutory law. Civil law may also be compared to military law, administrative law and constitutional (law the laws governing the political and law making process), and international law. Where there are legal options for causes of action by individuals within any of these areas of law, it is thereby civil law.
Civil law courts provide a forum for deciding disputes involving torts (such as accidents, negligence, and libel), contract disputes, the probate of wills, trusts, property disputes, administrative law, commercial law, and any other private matters that involve private parties and organisations including government departments. An action by an individual (or legal equivalent) against the attorney general is a civil matter, but when the state, being represented by the prosecutor for the attorney general, or some other agent for the state, takes action against an individual (or legal equivalent including a government department), this is public law, not civil law.
The objectives of civil law is different to other types of law. In civil law there is the attempt to right a wrong, honour an agreement, or settle a dispute. If there is a victim, they get compensation, and the person who is the cause of the wrong pays, this being a civilised form of, or legal alternative to, revenge. If it is an equity matter, there is often a pie for division and it gets allocated by a process of civil law, possibly invoking the doctrines of equity. In public law the objective is usually deterrence, and retribution. The victim, or people secondarily harmed by the wrong, do not get compensated, except with that vague notion called 'closure', and there is no pie for division.
An action in criminal law does not necessarily preclude an action in civil law in common law countries, and may provide a mechanism for compensation to the victims of crime. Such a situation occurred when OJ Simpson was ordered to pay damages for wrongful death.
Criminal law (also known as penal law) is the body of statutory and common law that deals with crime and the legal punishment of criminal offenses. There are four theories of criminal justice: punishment, deterrence, incapacitation, and rehabilitation. It is believed that imposing sanctions for the crime, society can achieve justice and a peaceable social order. This differs from civil law in that civil actions are disputes between two parties that are not of significant public concern.
Criminal law in most jurisdictions, both in the common and civil law traditions, is divided into two fields:
Criminal procedure regulates the process for addressing violations of criminal law
Substantive criminal law details the definition of, and punishments for, various crimes.
Functions of criminal law
Criminal law is intended to enforce social control by discouraging behaviour that is harmful to societal well-being, as well as behaviour that challenges the government's authority and legitimacy. Criminal law and punishments are designed to serve as a deterrent, helping to restrain behaviour . While some crimes (malum in se) are outlawed nearly universally, such as murder and rape, other crimes (malum prohibitum) reflect society's social attitudes and morality, such as laws prohibiting use of marijuana. Criminal law establishes procedure for punishing offenders, with punishment handled by the state and not the victim who might otherwise seek revenge
FOREIGN INVESTMENT LAW
The Law of Protection of Commerce and Investments from Foreign Policies that Contravene International Law (Spanish: Ley de Protección al Comercio y la Inversión de Normas Extranjeras que Contravengan el Derecho Internacional) is the law passed by the government of Mexico in response to the Helms-Burton Act, a United States federal law. The Helms-Burton Act, passed in March 1996, was designed to strengthen the United States embargo against Cuba.
The law was published on October 23, 1996 in the Official Journal of the Federation during the Ernesto Zedillo administration. In its first article, this law explicitly prohibits individuals or organizations, whether public or private, that are within the borders of Mexico from participating in any action that affects commerce or investment if those acts correspond to the application of laws of foreign countries
Sheraton Hotel incident
The first instance of a violation to this law happened almost ten years later when employees of the American-owned María Isabel Sheraton Hotel of Mexico City expelled a group of Cuban officials upon pressure from the United States government and confiscated their funds. The Cuban officials were meeting U.S. energy executives from organizations that included Valero, the United States' biggest oil refiner, the Louisiana Department of Economic Development, and the Texas port of Corpus Christi.
Voices of opposition were soon heard from the government of Mexico, the Government of Cuba, and most candidates in the 2006 presidential election. The Chamber of Deputies publicly condemned the violation of Mexican law and the rights of a group of consumers who were subjected to discrimination. On February 7, the United States Department of State declared on this matter that American law imposed upon American companies is applied regardless of the location of the company
Please Help! Looking For Legal Advice On Paternity During A Divorce!?
I Separated From My Husband In October Of 2008. He Immediately Moved Out Of State. In April 2009, Just As I Began The Divorce Process, I Got Pregnant. It Is Now October, And I Am Still Trying To Get The Divorce Finalized. Even Though It Is A No Fault/No Contest Divorce It Is Taking Too Long And I Am Now Afraid That I Will Still Be Married When The Baby Is Born And They Will Legally Name My Supposed-To-Be-Ex-Husband As The Father... If We Are Legally Divorced When The Baby Is Born, Can They Still Make Me Name Him Because I Conceived While We Were Married? Does The Fact That He And I Have Not Even Lived In The Same State Since Last Year Change Anything? I Am Overwhelmed By The Legal Distinctions Here....
Laura, if you are divorced they cannot make your ex the father on the birth certificate--but they can if you are still married when the child is born. This is what I suggest and did for a client in a similar situation. Get a lawyer and make sure they will represent you and that you can do this in your state. File a petition that when the child is born the man you are divorcing is not named the father on the birth certificate. Better yet if the father agrees file a Petition to have him named the father on the child's birth certificate. The basis of the petition is that since you lived in an entirely different state than the man you are divorcing it is an impossibility that he was the father as he had no physical access to you to get you pregnant. File the Order at the Court House and get 2 true and attest copies (You will have one for the hospital and another for the Bureau of Vital Records.). You will tell them that they are ordered by court to either not put the man you are divorcing as father on the birth certificate or to put the man you want on the birth certificate. Also advise them in a letter written by your attorney that if they fail to do this they will be turned in for Contempt of a Court Order.
***This may not be allowed in your state so it is critical you talk to a lawyer where you reside.
****Everyone who says that the woman can name any father she wants on the birth certificate is WRONG. The law prevents this as if they could do this thousands of celebrities would be named as fathers just in the hope of child support. Assume you can prevent the guy you are divorcing from having his name as father on the birth certificate. Then you will either have to have a man come forward and agree that he is the father or prove paternity by blood test. Could you imagine how stupid it would be if anyone could just name anyone they want as the father on the birth certificate (Ba ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)
Btw, in PA (and I am pretty sure OH and NY too) the courts will let you divorce while you are pregnant. Also if you are married (and in the process of a divorce) in PA when you have a baby--unless you do as I suggested your husband is named as the father on the child's birth certificate. The courts will not allow people to make a bastard of their child and change the father on the birth certificate or even order a paternity blood test unless there is a very good reason (for example: the person you want named as the father AND the person named as the father on the birth certicate BOTH agree)
Legal Contracts Vs Liability Insurance?
Are Legal Contracts Between A Person And A Client That State Specific Terms And Conditions For Liability Of Property Which Are Agreed On And Signed By The Client, Is A Contract That Covers The Detail Of All Of That Information, Equally As Binding As Being Insured Is?
I just heard good information about liability insurance from a book called "It's not about the money" by Brent Kessel. It mentioned that liability insurance only goes so far in protecting you, and that it's useful for protecting remaining assets AFTER some assets have been collected by effects of the liability. So in essence, even with liability insurance you're not completely exempt .
