My ex husband lied on school record forms claiming he had sole custody of our daughter he used us to enroll her in a new . The school policy is that they are supposed to share information with both parents. I had provided them with a copy of the court order stating we share custody. They didn't... Read more »
Congratulations on acceptance to your school. Until you are able to speak with a knowledgeable immigration attorney who could offer meaningful input here, one option with the fall semester getting underway might be to contact your school. Many schools today are expanding their enrollment of...Read more »
This is something that an educational administrator would probably know better than an attorney would. One option might be to contact the Louisiana Department of Education or a superintendent in the school district. Good luck
My daughter was recommended for top class two years in a row by the classroom teacher. We declined but found that last year was not challenging for her. Now that we want to try the top class they are saying no. Can we force it?
Until you are 18, you have to live where your parents say. If that's on a college campus or near the college and they are saying you can live there then there shouldn't be any issues. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
I am 17 years old and a citizen of The United States. When I was 8 my custody was granted to my mom when she got divorced. Later she immigrated to the United States and brought me along. She now bought me a plane ticket and are forcing me to go back to My dad who lives in China. Does she have the... Read more »
You would have to consult with an expert on the laws of China to determine whether your father could "refuse to accept" you. But if your mother has custody of you she can, until you reach the age of majority, require you to take the flight.
We reported an incident of hazing and bullying as a group at my university. The school ignored the complaints until we demanded meetings with the deans about other issues, then we were finally permitted to report the hazing
Now, the school refuses to treat the victims as a collective group.... Read more »

First of all, provide sufficient details to permit a reasoned analysis of your situation. Conclusory statements are unhelpful. Facts and details are most important, but nothing is more important than a chronological statement of who did what, to whom, when, where and how.
I earned and accepted a full scholarship for a graduate program. I sought this scholarship because as a new undergrad, I did not have the money to pay for tuition, fees, and books. Unfortunately, I had to withdraw due to medical illness. The university rescinded the scholarship and is now... Read more »
It is very doubtful that any reputable university in America would try to sue to recover tuition that would have been paid by the university to itself had you been able to stay in school. Most reputable universities will allow students to withdraw without financial penalty for many good reasons,...Read more »
I was told that I would have a guaranteed spot back at the schools I taught at after my maternity leave was over. According to the district, due to "declining enrollment" they had to move some teachers around to teach at different schools for the following school year. They are giving me entirely... Read more »
No, you do not have a viable claim. They have accommodated your maternity leave and have alternative employment available for you to work when you return. Why would you want to sue the school district, and what damages would you claim? Emotional Distress for providing suitable alternative...Read more »
Hi there. There was a sexual incident involving 2 boys at my child’s school. It is a safety concern for me and other parents as well. Other parents, including myself, have been talking about this and sharing information with parents who were not aware because the school is trying to hide it. I am... Read more »
Tread lightly here. A lot depends on who is threatening you with a lawsuit. When you are dealing with minors in a school setting, it's going to be tough for you to prove what you are saying or discussing is factual truth unless you are a party to the action.
The document was missing goals, and the district removed two agreed goals, resulting in inappropriate/ no reporting. Now are removing services with no progress reports to support. When realized error, they altered the document to cover up one goal was missing at reporting time.
