Family Law Questions? Ask a Family Lawyer Online.
Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am looking forward to assisting you.
While we write back and forth, please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me.
There can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.
Can you please tell me what city and state or province is involved in your question? I cannot see it on my screen right now.
Has your son been to a psychiatrist or psychologist?
I'll look forward to hearing from you,
Jane Doe Deer
I think that perhaps you shouldn't bail him out of jail. By doing so he is not learning that bad behavior has consequences.
I suggest that you get recommendations for a psychologist or psychiatrist in your area.
This may be the acts of teenage rebellion, or it may be that a medication and counseling will help him.
This isn't really a legal question. If you'd like I could have your question transferred to one of Just Answer's Health experts.
Ohhh. That's a whole different question all right. If you don't have even partial custody, no. You can kick him out.
You may want to give the following information to your son. He is old enough to become emancipated, which means that he would then be considered an adult:
