My name is XXXXX XXXXX X look forward to discussing this and providing you information in this regard
I am sorry to hear that your son is going through this disruptive time in his life and that your family is in this situation.
So you want to remove your son from the home at this time, is that correct? What is he on medication for, please?
Yes, we are considering it. He is currently being treated for ADHD.
Thank you and I am sorry to hear of this matter for your family. I suggest that you may want to consider having him committed to a psychiatric ward of a hospital for evaluation You can use this LINK and the form is an Emergency Evaluation Form to be filed with the Circuit Court in the county/city where you live
You will have a hearing and if the Judge agrees there should be an evaluation, then your son will be transported to a mental health facility. The other way is to call the police and request he be taken to the nearest hospital with a Mental Health/Psychiatric ward because he is a threat to the family members and possibly even himself. If you want a local attorney to help you, I suggest you can contact one who specializes in juvenile law. They are most experienced with issues of children who are incorrigible/angry/violentI suggest that is difficult to have a child removed from the home and made a ward of the state. But it has been done. The state will take the child, house them in a mental health hospital or even place with a foster family if such mental health evaluation suggests that is in the best interest of the child. The parents, however, are responsible financially for the amount the state uses to maintain the childI hope that this information is helpful. If you need further information, please just send me a reply asking for clarification. After that, I hope you will enter a positive rating so that I will be credited for assisting you. Thanks again for using this service. Your business is appreciated
