Can I File A Lawsuit/Criminal Charges?
Here'S The Situation:
I Am A High School Student At A Pretty Good Private School. I Have Been Doing An Independent Project For The Past Two Weeks Which Involves Using My Computer Everyday. My Teacher Told Me To Sit In The Lobby At A Table. My Work Space Is A Chair At A Table About 2 Feet Away From A Wall.
One Day, I Left My Computer Plugged In And Sitting On The Table While I Visited A Classroom During Break. While In The Class Room, I Hear From A Frantic Classmate That &Quot;Billy&Quot; And &Quot;Bob&Quot; (Fake Names) Had Knocked My Computer Over. I Rush Back And Find It On The Table But In A Different Position. I Tried Powering On The Machine But Notice That There Is Hard Drive Damage And Motherboard Damage. This Was Confirmed But The It Department And A Senior Administrator. Note That Those Who Knocked My Computer Did Not Tell Me Themselves. I Confronted One Who Stated That He Had Knocked My Computer Over But Did Feel That It Was Too Damaged. The Other Did Not Apologize Until A Note Of Concern Went To His Parents.
The Problem Is That The Parents Of Those Students State That They Have No Responsibility For The Damages. They Did Not Call Until 6 Days After The Incident Nor Did They Apologize. They Claim That I Should Not Have Left My Stuff There And That It Was An Accident. Total Damages Are Around 1500 Usd.
My Mom And I Are Thinking About Taking This To Court. By Now, The Issue Isn'T The Money, But A Lack Of Respect. In Addition, There Might Be Discrimintation. We Are Not As Well Off As The Other People (I Am On Financial Aid) And The Kids Are White/Jewish While I Am Asian.
If Anyone Has Any Useful Suggestions, Especially Those In Criminal Law, Please Answer.
First of all, this isn't a criminal action. There was no intent. And even if it was criminal, then all you have authority to do is report it to the police. Since neither you nor your Mom is the District Attorney, then neither of you has the authority to file criminal charges. The police aren't going to make an arrest over this, and charges will not be filed, so get the whole criminal matter stuff out of your head.
While we're on the subject of getting issues out of your head, get the discrimination angle out of there too. This was not discrimination in the least bit. And even if it was, proving it would be next to impossible. You would need a statement from them that they targeted you because of your race and intentionally destroyed the computer because of your race. Even in your own story that wasn't the case. Even you say they were "screwing around". This wasn't targeted racial discrimination, so get over yourself and quit acting like it was.
Finally, we reach the negligence issue. You do have a case for a valid lawsuit on the theory of negligence. You mom will need to file suit against the other boys and their parents for the damages to the laptop. Since the damages are only $1500, this can be filed in small claims court without the assistance of a lawyer.
What Is The Average Cost Of A Custody Attorney?
I Was Talking To My Baby'S Father About How I'M Concerned That He Doesn'T Seem To Care For Our Child, And His Parents Took That To Mean I Can'T Handle Full Custody. We Are Both Adults But Apparently His Parents Are Just Going To Decide Everything For Him, While I Meanwhile Have A Part Time Job And Have Been Doing Fantastic On My Own. I Just Don'T Want Him To Abandon My Child Like My Father Abandoned Me. Anyways, I Don'T Know What An Attorney Would Cost, Or If Any Of You Know A Way O Reduce The Cost, Thanks! I Won'T Let My Baby Get Taken From Me, No Matter The Cost.
Do you currently have legal custody? If so, relax...the father and his family would have to PROVE that you are an unfit mother. That is very difficult to do, custody orders are rarely changed without a really good reason.

And Minor ...What Would Be A Good Minor? Any Advice Would Be Very Much Appreciated.
If you can get an advanced degree, do it. The more education you have, the better. Make sure the school you attend is properly accredited. Get the highest grade point average that you can. There are many majors that are good for police officers and people that want to become police officers. Accounting, communications, computer science, a foreign language, forensic science, law, and psychology are some examples. There are many police officers that also take college classes. Consider trying to get an internship with a law enforcement agency while you're in college. Also consider participating in a couple extra-curricular activities. Don't do anything illegal, and maintain a good reputation. Getting police officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. Do whatever else you can to make yourself the best candidate that you can. Best of luck!

How Long Can The Divorce Form Be Served In California?
The Petition Filed The Divorce In California?
But Half Want To Continue The Case, Half Want To Withdraw.
The Ealiest Case To Be Finalized In California Is 6 Months & 1 Day After The Form Is Served To The Respondent.
To Have Little More Time To Think About It, Can He Hold On The Form, Not Give It To The Third Party To Serve The Form Yet.
How Long Is The Deadline For A Divorce Form Should Be Served?
The normal time to serve the divorce case is within 60 days of when its filed. That being said, you are allowed to change your mind and never serve it. California courts do not push people to get divorced, they want people to think long and hard about it. That's why you have to wait 6 months from service to even get it finalized. You could wait a year to serve it and I doubt anyone from the court would complain and if they did you could just tell them that you were thinking about it.
Free Divorce Attorney In Fort Worth Texas?
Need Help To Get A Divorce,But I Have No Money And 3 Boys.Any Help Or Info Would Be Great!!Thank You
First, in Texas he can ask for a jury trial. Too many women on the jury and he will get custody.
Start by not being a failure to your children and yourself. Regardless of what you feel, your children deserve to have an intact family. Over 80% of children develop behavioral problems as a result of divorce. That means that at least two of your children will suffer from your failure.
If you have to get a divorce, see a mediator and go for bird nest custody.
It’s a form of access or custody where the children stay in the former family residence and it is the parents who rotate in and out separately and on a negotiated schedule.
The children simply live at "home" and the separated or divorced parents take turns living with them there, but never at the same time.
The core element of this arrangement is that each parent maintains a separate residence where they live when it is not their turn at the "bird's nest". When one parent arrives for his/her designated time, the other vacates right away, so as to minimize or eliminate the presence of both at the same time.
At times, bird's nest access can be coupled with specified access with the other parent say, for example, for dinner one night a week.
Sometimes, this form of access or custody will end when the youngest child reaches the age of majority at which time, one parent either buys the other out of their interest, if any, in the former family residence, or it is sold and the proceeds divided pursuant to the matrimonial property regime or separation agreement.
The arrangement can be expensive as it generally requires that three separate residences be maintained, the "nest" and a separate residence for each parent.
The concept is somewhat novel and appears to have as its origin a Virginia case Lamont v Lamont.
In Canada, Greenough v Greenough was a ground-breaker case in that the Court implemented a bird's nest custody order even though it had not been asked for by either party. Justice Quinn, in Greenough stated:
"In Lamont ... the court made a bird’s nest custody arrangement in which the children (aged 3 and 5 years) remained in the home, with the mother staying in the home during the week and the father on the weekend. I think that the benefits of a bird’s nest order are best achieved where the children are able to stay in the matrimonial home, particularly if it has been the only residence that they have known....
"Time and time again I have seen cases (and this is one) where the children are being treated as Frisbees. In general, parents do not seem to appreciate the gross disruption to which children are subjected where one of the parents has frequent access. In this regard, I do not believe there must be evidence that the children are suffering before the court is free to act. To me, it is a matter of common sense. At the risk of falling prey to simplistic generalities, I am of the view that, given a choice, I do not see why anyone would select a living arrangement which involved so much movement from house to house."
