If that was the case, then the conflict is that the attorney can use information gained from the father and use it either for or against the father. However, if the case was something else in a...

You need to call the CPS hotline in Albany and make a report of a teen with no parents and no support. They have to send someone out within 48 hours to check on the situation and make a determination.

You say your brother can be your guardian but you haven't said if he wants to. It would be hard for your mother to force you to move at 17. You should know that at 18 the courts won't get involved.

In theory you can be sued. Anyone can sue anyone. If you are, send it to your insurance company. If you have no insurance, you will likely not be sued.

You need to see a lawyer immediately, do NOT answer any questions without speaking to and having a lawyer with you. If you or your parents/custodian cannot afford a lawyer have one assigned to you before you answer any questions or say anything.

The answer is no it is not okay. If this continues, you can go to the Department of Social Services and file for PINS Diversion.

The age of consent in New York is 17 - this means that if you are currently 17 years old and dating a 16 year old, you can potentially be charged with a sex offense if it is a sexual relationship.

The parents of the 17 year old might also be sued for civil assault for the torts of their minor child. More details are... Read more »
Is a domestic matter. What does that mean? What about me? Is it ok for him to hit me too? If we defend ourselves then we will be arrested?
