At a trial or proceeding however, you could present your spouse as a witness if their testimony is relevant to your case. Dagna S. Van Der Jagt, Van Der Jagt Law, 303-646-7040.

    You landlord has an obligation and you have a right to receive an itemized statement of how your deposit was used within 30 days of the lease expiration.

How long was your probation, what were the terms of your probation and how did you complete that sentence. Did you do complete your sentence to probation successfully or not. Also, you did not specify your field of work, but usually if there is a licensing board involved, an attorney can help you review...
