My 19 year old daughter who lives in VT is online dating a 16 year old boy in CA. they want to meet - I will not let her go to CA on her own to meet him, but am wondering what issues are possible if he was to travel to VT to visit. Age of consent
is 16 in VT and 18 in CA.
JA: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this.
Customer: thank you.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: I asked a lawyer friend for advise, she indicated that she thought that since it was 16 in VT that these laws would apply to him if he was here. But she is not this type of lawyer and so thought i would do more research.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: My daughter does not intend to be active sexually with him, they want to meet to see if they want to continue to date remotely. She is in college in Michigan and can only see him once a year if they decide to stay together.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
