I am an adult from New york City. I live in a home that i dont own, with a blood relative who is mentally ill and harassed/attacked me to the point i called the police who served her a domestic incidence report. She keeps harassing me via email and in person, and threatened to tell the police i have drugs in my private locked room if i report her again. Do i have the right to refuse entry to my room to police, and what steps can i take to protect myself from further harassment?

My daughters are in middle school this year. The school is

My daughters are in middle school this year. The school is stating that it is mandatory for them to sign an agreement regarding an IPad that they will use at school & at home. The specific area that I have a problem with is that my daughters are 13/minors & the section they want them to sign states that my children will be charged with a "criminial offense" if they enter in any unauthorized website..I dont' have a problem with that what I do have an issue with is that the school will not take ANY RESPONSIBILITY while my children are under their supervision. They also state they will prosecute them if there is any wrongdoing. I have no problem signing my name that I will be responsible for what they do under my care, but will not take responsibility while they are at school, when I am not with them & they are under the schools supervision. Is this legal for them to demand this signature of a minor & if we don't sign my children will have to do all of their homework, etc on paper & loss out on the convenience of the IPad??

Me and my ex boyfriend rented a house together and things

me and my ex boyfriend rented a house together and things have gotten violent several times the cops have been called several times. I want to leave him I've moved out. I want off of the lease so I'm not responsible for what he does with the house. I would stay at the house and pay rent but he will not leave and my landlord has told me I can't make him leave. It is not a safe place for me to live. My landlord will not take my name off the lease even though my ex has agreed to take over the lease. Is there some way I can get my name off of the lease because it's an unsafe living environment? I was thinking about giving a 30 day notice but I don't really know what that does. And if my ex is not willing to work with me I'm getting my name off the lease because he has told me he'll never let me leave him what then? I am in Kansas
