My friend has a felony conviction from the 90's and is currently awaiting sentencing on a federal drug charge that she pled guilty to.. She is planning to marry a felon who is currently on probation, can she do that?
There is nothing illegal about the two getting getting married. However, if either one of them is on probation or parole, there may be conditions that prevent them from living together.
This is NOT legal advice. It is a general discussion of legal principles by a California lawyer, and does not create an attorney/client relationship. You should always consult PRIVATELY with an attorney. Free consultation only applies to potential clients with a criminal case within 100 miles of Chico, California.
It will be more than a little difficult to have a successful marriage when the 2 may be precluded from "associating" with one another because of the terms of their respective felony probation or parole.
This is not a good idea which could lead to them being violated on their probation/parole.
Be sure the respective parole and probation officers approve before you get married.
