    Contact Department of Professional and Ovcupational Regulation for Virginia without delay. Consider calling the police for contractors obtaining money under False pretenses. See where each goes. If both fail hire a lawyer. I say hiring a lawyer last because it sounds like this is not your contractors first rodeo and a lawsuit won't phase him. Potentially losing his license could bring on a result.

    Demetrios’s Answer

    I would contact former Landlord and their attorney with your proof and request they remove it. You could also attempt to Petition the Court you were in to remove the reporting of it as a UD. That is not a guarantee.

  • What can I do?

    My girlfriend threw a empty bottle in my employer's parking lot.. There was a verbal altercation with me and the security guard.. I was told not to report to work until an investigation has been conducted.. I still work there but I've been out of ...

    Demetrios’s Answer

    First, break up with your girlfriend. Second, nothing really. Virginia is a "Employment At Will State" - you can be fired for any reason they deem appropriate. You my want to issue a written apology and ask for a second chance. In this day, arguing with a Security Guard that also works for your employer would give any Employer pause.

    All Orders are required. It is quite possible the Court has continuing jurisdiction over the matter. You should immediately consult with a local family attorney because you risk being in contempt of court.
