A: Your facts are vague. What is a 171/2yr boy? More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/ publications on my law practice website. I practice law in CA, NY, MA, and DC in the following areas of law: Business & Contracts, Criminal Defense, Divorce & Child Custody, and Education Law. This answer does not constitute legal advice; make any predictions, guarantees, or warranties; or create any Attorney-Client relationship.

A: As a concerned parent your first response is to discuss your objections and views with your daughter to see if this may possibly resolve the issue. Secondly, perhaps discussing the "issues" with the young man's parents might also be helpful so that they know how you feel. Third, and lastly I would tell the young man he is not welcome at your residence and that you don't feel it is appropriate for your daughter to be in a relationship at this age. He is 17 , she is 16, so if there are additional issues as sexual intercourse and/or drugs and alcohol usage involved please consult immediately with me or the attorney of your choice so that you can be advised as to the potential legal issues raised.
