If they don't have the money to repay does the business insurance have to pay the money? Like for a beauty shop? The owner has given it over before a divorce. Then found out when he saw the bank statements that showed cash payments were not on deposit slips!

Robert Jason De Groot answered on Aug 25, 2015

What is the age of consent in your state? It appears to be 16. But that does not mean that your boyfriend cannot be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor. You have to do as your parents say until you are an adult.
