If you're talking about Miami-Dade County, it apparently has no general religious exemption to the mask mandate. There is an exemption for being at or inside a religious institution, but not a religious exemption for other locations. See -...Read more »

You have not specified why that would be harmful to you. I would imagine that an apartment for the handicapped would have more benefits than a regular apartment, not less (for example, a larger bathroom and being on the ground floor), but I have no familiarity with it.

If the police can, in writing, articulate reasons to support probable cause to arrest the guest, then it is a legal arrest, but of course the evidence may or may not be enough to convict. If they cannot articulate sufficient reasons, it's a false arrest, which should not only lead to the...Read more »
She told my parents now that she is pregnant she is emancipated. They told her she needs to go to court first to get emancipated but she refused and left. Is that true we live in Florida.

Defend yourself against what? You said the officers left without arresting you, and I assume you mean they also did not give you any notice to appear in court. Also, from your description, it does not sound like the type of police case where they will be in on-going investigation to determine if...Read more »
