She repeatedly slapped my daughter in the face she had her by the throat. My daughter want to know if they will report her to dad she has to children that I believe may have seen it she is worried about the kids but that she will get in trouble for hitting her back
If daughter was not the aggressor and didnt start the altercation, and if she has injuries, then go to the magistrates office and take out assault charges. Nothing prevents aunt from doing the same thing.
Clearly this is an unhealthy family relationship, and I would sever contact until it...Read more »
Her reason for the ungovernable charge was that I am disrespectful and I do what I want when I want. About ten days ago. She slapped me, so hard I couldn’t hear out of my ear. That entire side of my face went numb. Then I yelled at her that I hated her and hit her arm. When she called the police,... Read more »
Anyone can post the bail money for a person. But be careful interjecting in this situation. If your sister is a minor, its unlikely they would hold her on much of a bond unless the charges were serious.
A North Carolina attorney familiar with education law, or an educational administrator could probably tell you. But your question remains open for three weeks. Don't drop out. You don't need an attorney to tell you that. Finish school and get a diploma, or things are so bad at your school, at least...Read more »
Father is on drugs and not been seen in awhile. I would like to get my son out of a toxic situation, am I legally aloud to do so even though he as been with grandparents for 6 months? Do they have any rights? I’ve not been served any papers or anything like that. Father and child both reside in... Read more »
As a biological parent, you have a paramount right to the physical custody of your children, unless those rights have been terminated or you have been found to be unfit. I suggest you retrieve your child immediately to avoid arguments that you have abandoned the child or abbrogated your rights,...Read more »
He’s a good kid and doesn’t deserve the crap life he’s been dealt. I live in NC and want to take care of him. If it’s kept very under wraps, could we get away with it? I’m scared if she doesn’t seriously hurt him, he will hurt himself.
Unintelligible means 'impossible to understand. I did not mean for you to think you are unintelligent. As to the phone, yes, you as the parent can control what property your child possesses. So you may take the phone from the child. However, you should return it to the grandmother.
Father has sole full legal custody and the bio mom's rights have been terminated. she went in the middle of the night and got the children 14 and 13 at the time of crime and took them through 5 county lines and refuses to return children. what is the crime here? and how does father prosecute?
So my sons mother had her 14 year old niece living with her and my sons mothers boyfriend let his bestfriend stay there as well who was over 21 years old and ended up getting the 14 year old pregnant and they all knew they were "dating" or messing around under the same roof. She ended up having to... Read more »
Yes, they can - especially if the child is school age. They will just roll up in there without you present and question away - all with the likely gleeful help of the child's teacher and principal. If you are smart and have instructed the child not to speak to people. They will essentially use...Read more »
She is 17 and 9 months engaged and finished school had full custody of her child and she wants to leave her home in Virginia and come live with us in N.C. she is already here and she just doesn't want to go back. Can anyone legally make her go back?
Having a child doesn't make you an adult - she is a child until she is 18. So whoever has custody of her can likely much make her go back for the next 3 months or so. You should be more concerned about not who can make her go back but who can have you charge with crimes for your involvement.
My boyfriend who is going to be 17 soon (I'm 20) is looking into getting emancipated (lives in north carolina, im in ohio). I have a car, getting a apartment soon with 2 other people, we all have stable jobs, and his father highly likely will support the decision (his mother might oppose). The... Read more »
Of course his mother will likely oppose - any sane person would. Most 16 year old boys can't tie their own shoes or keep their pants pulled up - let alone provide for themselves. Emancipation is difficult because the child will have to convince a Judge that he is able to take care of himself and...Read more »

decided not valid threat after interviewing all parties, however our kid sees a therapist regularly for anxiety issues and this is greatly affecting him in both social and academic ways along with flare ups of anxiety over the threat (whether it was real or not, just because kid said he's sorry...

From your description - I'd say its already resolved. If you are considering suing or think expulsion is appropriate - odds are you aren't really trying to resolve things peaceably. These days law enforcement and school administrators take these kinds of things likely too seriously so it stands...Read more »
Depends what you mean by 'grabbed'. If you mean grabbed in its normal definition, then a teacher would normally and very rightfully do that usually due to one of two things 1) because the child is misbehaving and / or 2) to prevent the child from getting hurt. In either of those cases the child...Read more »
At home is rough for me because I am constantly doing everything myself. I go to school and am working on finding a job currently and I just need to get out of this house, I also already have a place to go afterwards and plan on graduating.
To be emancipated you have to be able to prove to a Judge's satisfaction that you possess the maturity and ability to care for and financially provide for yourself. That is a virtually impossible standard for a lot of 25 years olds these days, let alone a 17 year old. Your best bet may be to get...Read more »
I am 17 yrs old and she is 16 yrs old. I got her pregnant and she is afraid to tell her legal guardian because of her previous abusive history she has done to my girlfriend. She has a place to go if she runaways but she doesn't want to go back to that abusive "home." Also, the guardian makes my... Read more »
