As always my responses are based upon the application of NJ law. The answer may not be in accordance with the laws of the other 49 States.

All I did was confront her and took him to go get looked at by a doctor. Didn't say she did it or anything, just asked her why he would be saying things like that. They live in Wisconsin and we live in Kentucky
