In the United States, the rights of minors during questioning by school officials and school police officers can vary depending on the state and the specific circumstances. Generally, school officials have some authority to question students about incidents that may affect the school environment,...View More
My daughter is type 1 diabetic, and she was denied her accommodations at a summer camp in Florida in which she was enrolled and we have been paying for more than 1 year to save her place, on June 15, 2023 I filled out all the forms required by the camp with all her necessary accommodations,...

The camp may or may not be in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act, depending on various factors. This publication by the American Diabetes Association is helpful: https://diabetes.org/sites/default/files/2021-06/Camp_2021_Fact%20Sheetsnewbranding.pdf
His attorney probably wants to talk to him about the facts of the case. Anything your son tells his attorney is privileged. The attorney can't be made to disclose what her client told her. On the other hand, what your son says in your presence is not privileged, so, in theory, you could be...View More
I'm planning on making YouTube videos in which I record conversations with people in public places (with a cashier, waiter, person at the park, etc.) and then use that clip to help teach people English by explaining the meaning of what I and the stranger said. My YouTube channel is... View More
A signed release is always your best option. Depending on your location, you could be dealing with privacy laws AND publicity laws, and a failure to obtain a signed release could expose you to serious civil liability. Given the purported nature of your videos, I would imagine participants would...View More
The kids all lied to investigators at first, and said their friend stole a bottle from their parents, and the parents didn't know they were drinking. But the girl's parents are mad, and they found out the adult hosts handed the kids shots when they walked in the door, and kept giving them... View More
No, the boy probably doesn't have a viable defense to possible criminal charges by arguing that he didn't have the mental capacity. Any diminished capacity resulting from voluntary intoxication is normally not a defense. But of course, he should refuse to answer any questions about this...View More
He’s bullying 93 yr old in home causing my 5yr old grandson I’ve adopted to break down. He’s refusing to do schoolwork stealing taking off etc. I’ve called many agencies only to get one offering referral for counseling. This child needs a one on one situation that I can’t provide. I’m... View More
You would need to file a motion to terminate the guardianship. I would highly recommend that you contact an attorney to assist you if this is what you want to do. If you can, it would be best if you could find someone else to take over the guardianship of the child and that way you can file a...View More
At the adjudicatory hearing even though I was there at 9am as scheduled, although all other parties were provided with links to attend via voom, I didn’t leave the building till 3:30 that day without seeing the judge and when I asked what was going on the bailiff said I couldn’t speak to the...

A controlled by took place where in the video record of the controlled by there is footage of a minor smoking. I thought that without a minors permission given it is against the law and against their rights?
There are laws against video voyeurism (Fla. Stat. 810.145) and recording audio without a person's consent (934.03), but both laws have exceptions for law enforcement. This should be discussed with the criminal defense attorney handling the case. Also, legal steps can be taken to protect the...View More
However, the officer said I did not adopt him and he is allowed to throw things around the house. I am trying to get a hold of a supervisor and I was told to call back when he is back from vacation. Please Advise. I feel strongly the police are bias and not doing there job. Also, my wife is trying... View More
So, it is definitely not the law that someone is allowed to kick you in the back and vandalize your house just because you didn't adopt him. The crime for vandalizing is called "Criminal Mischief," governed by Florida Statute 806.13. The crime for kicking you in the back is called...View More
I've been living with my grandparents for almost 8 months. They've supported me 100%. Mom agreed and even threw me out ( step dad did to) one time. She is toxic emotionally and physically, to me. I lose interest in school and life in general. I'm 17, a Senior in high school have... View More
You should have your father consult with an attorney to try to modify the current timesharing order so the Judge can make a determination of what is the best for you based on your current situation. Another alternative will be to file for emancipation, but you will need to meet all the statutory...View More
When I spoke to the sheriffs, they told me they would provide a “public attorney” since I do not have the funds for one and it’s been a week and ever since all I get are advertisements in the mail but not the one that has been told to me… so my question is when or how will I get in contact...

As a former judge and attorney of nearly forty years, my suggestion is that you actively pursue any appointed attorney or public defender so that you can keep yourself informed as to the status of your case…Nothing is worse than waiting for the day of court to find things out…This also applies...View More

My 17-year-old daughter was staying with her father even though I am primary parent in our custody arrangement. Her father is now in jail and she has been staying with her sister. I have made it very clear from day 1 to both of my daughters that I am not ok with this and I want her to come home.... View More
You have the parental rights to do what you need to do to get her back home. This, unfortunately, is where the law and reality clash. You most likely will not even get into court before your daughter turns eighteen. Perhaps you can work with her and her sister in terms of advising that you are...View More
