Q: Parent open car door in backseat of moving vehicle with children in backseat. How illegal is this?
I'm wondering if this is child endangerment and if I, as the 18 y/o sister of the children and step daughter of the parent, can press charges or what kinds of legal action I can take. There are other recurring problems in the household but this recent act, as well as other verbal insults and fighting, have lead me to want to take action.
A: MORE INFO NEEDED.
I DO NOT DO FAMILY LAW BUT THIS SOUNDS MORE LIKE A CRIMINAL MATTER.
CLEARLY BOTH AREAS OF LAW ADDRESS ISSUES LIKE THIS..........CHILD PROTECTIVE SERVICES MIGHT BE A START. HOWEVER, I WOULD TRY TO SET UP A FREE CONSULTATION WITH A LOCAL LAWYER SO THE S/HE CAN HEAR ALL THE FACTS.
