I want to seek counselling my children for abuse. My

I want to seek counselling for both my children for sexual abuse. My daughter states she will get counselling but don't want anything to happen to her brother, that has molestated her from the age of 8 through 17 and the activity stopped 2 years ago. He no longer lives in the home, and until she wants him around I will not allow him to visit the home. After confronting my son about the secret, he too wants to get counselling. They both want to get past and properly heal from the abuse and victim side of the issue. However, As I'm trying to find them both proper help, iv'e read where therapist by law don't have to keep the information confidential and by law they have to report the molestation to authorities. Is it true,? Can he be charged with a crime of, "molestation" if he goes to a counselor seeking help for his actions? Can she be open about her molestation and begin to heal without the threat of the therapist reporting it. They are both over the age of 18 now, the actions started when they were around 8 years old for her and 15 years old for him. I hope I gave you enough info.

Recently, my son's confidentiality was violated by s former

Recently, my son's confidentiality was violated by his former pastor in Americus, Georgia by the pastor putting his entire circumstance on Facebook. My son lost his job, got a divorce, and had to move from Americus, Georgia. We are trying to get him legal representation because of the following that was copied from Facebook that was entered by the pastor:Bud Womack Sometimes silence is golden, but not this time so I feel the deep need to clear many things up based on your post here. No Jeremy, you didn't just "do it the absolute wrong way this time" you've been doing it the absolute wrong way for over 6 months and you've been told by me and others many times to stop it. That's why you're divorced today, lost your job with the police Dept and actions were taken at church to force you to leave her alone and protect a child. Some may feel this is a racial issue but nothing could be further from the truth because it's a moral issue plain and simple. What you've done and are doing may not be illegal in Georgia but it's still very immoral for a 32 year old married man to have a romantic relationship, and probably a physical relationship, with a 17 year old child. You have simply taken advantage of a child plain and simple. You've ask for people to forgive you and without a doubt we are all willing to do that. However, forgiveness can't happen until there's repentance and repentance means you turn away from what you've done that warranted asking for the forgiveness. As your pastor I tried to do nothing but love and protect you and your family as well as Caitlyn and her family. It was your actions that continued after many meetings and discussions that required my actions as a pastor to protect everyone and the church as a whole including the two of you. When your actions got worse rather than better I had no choice but to remove you from continuing to pursue a child on the church property. Plain and simple we love you and want the best for all involved but you nor Caitlyn are victims in this situation but rather the cause of it. Please know that loving someone has nothing to do with condoning their wrong choices and actions. You can only move beyond this by letting it go and walking away. Life Point Church and myself continue to pray for you all. And I ad... Do the right thing.*************As a result and being the father, I posted the following on Facebook:JerroldCynthia Hinton Jeremy, I am just now reading this post and in particular the post written by your former pastor. As a licensed and ordained African-American pastor that has been in the ministry since 1977, I am appalled that your confidentiality has been so violated by someone claiming to be one called by God. While I do not condone the relationship with Caitlin Elswick, I am very much crushed by what you have had to endure. My bible let's me know that ALL have sin and come short the Glory of God. Even your former pastor. I will not attempt to point out any of your shortcomings on social media, because I read one day thta I shouldn't try to remove the speck out of your eye and neglect the beam in my own eye. It is people like your former pastor that causes situations like Baton Rouge, LA and Minnesota. While you MUST forgive your former pastor for what he has done, I am advising you to retain an attorney out of Atlanta and let them start litigation. I will print this post myself and run it by the Department of Jusice here in Washingnton, DC. Action must be taken to prevent aforementioned events by pointing out the very things and people that cause them. Unfortunately, there are many preaching from pulpits in your area on Sundays and wear their hooded sheets during the week. Yes son, his post has racial overtones even though he states it's not racial,. He has tried to destory you. I can't believe he called the police and wanted you arrested. Be encouraged young black man! No pastor on earth has a heaven or a hell to put you in. I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over your life and no weapon formed against you shall prosper. I pray that God will reverse what has been done to you in Jesus name. Finally, you may want to give a printed copy of his post to the local TV stations to assist in preventing others from being violated by what should be a place to heal and continuously point people to salvation.

I am a pro se plaintiff in a case that has been moved from

I am a pro se plaintiff in a case that has been moved from small claims to district court. I was sent a notice that there will be a conference to discuss discovery schedule. I may be interested in a settlement agreement, but I would insist that the settlement agreement have no confidentiality clause and that the agreement be available to the public. I am not looking to force the defendant to profess liability. How do I make sure that the settlement agreement becomes public record and doesn't get buried? How and where would it need to be filed? It is me against a very big entity, but it is not for much money. My case is mainly for principle and fighting injustice. Thank you.
