Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi, My name is***** am an attorney with over 16 years experience. Hopefully I can help you with your legal question.
Can you provide some context? What is going on exactly? Who is taping whom?
Thank youA minor child (one who is 17 years old or younger) has very few "rights"...rather, they are subject to the direction / guidance of their parent or guardian.So there is no "right" to not be filmed by their parent/guardian...if you think about it I suspect you will agree that this makes sense...can you imagine a 10 year old demanding that his parents can NOT take his picture and threatening legal action if they snap the photo.That said, the court has the power to ensure the parents / guardians do not abuse the child...so, for example, if a parent or guardian harms their child, they can be held accountable.What you are describing does not appear to violate any TX laws. A property owner has the right to videotape on the property.Now...if there is evidence that the parent/guardian is filming the child undressing to gratify their sexual desires? That would be a crime...and you could report that to local law enforcement.Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
Welcome. Thank you for taking the time to accept the answer, I truly appreciate thatphil
