Recent Drug Possession questions

I have the same questions as the person on the blog. My 17

I have the same questions as the person on the blog. My 17 year old daughter is constantly using illegal drugs and bringing them into my house. She's been arrested twice in the last year. We love her, but nothing is getting through to her. Its time for tough love. We are giving her an ultimatum to either got to rehab or be evicted. I just don't know if I have any real teeth in my threat. I was told that there is a legal way to evict a 17 year old. But after reading Ed's response, I don't have a place to send her, so it looks like I could be out of luck. She constantly tells us that she has places to stay and frankly we're so fed up with her disrespect and insolence that we're ready to take her up on it. I just don't want to do anything illegal. My guy just wants to kick her out of the house. My heart wants to send her to rehab and get my beautiful daughter back.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: San Antonio, TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: We had the police come to our house last year and they found drugs in her room and arrested her in the house. She got 6 months probation and the case was sealed. Immediately after probation she went right back to her old ways. She got arrested Tuesday night with pot in her back back but astonishingly, the judge dropped the charges. I also had to call the police two months ago because she stole my wife's cell phone. That should be on record.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just need options. We love our daughter but we can't take this any longer. We've been to counseling ad nauseum and it just doesn't faze her. We need help!

My ''father'' continually sends me insulting emails,

My ''father'' continually sends me insulting emails, threatening my person and my career (had a misdemeanor at 18). He threatens to call my place of employment and tell them I have an illegal drug possession charge (of which I do not). He is also harassing both of my siblings and stepmother (his now ex-wife) in the same manner.My question is, can I press charges if I'm in a different state (I travel for work) and if so should I press charges myself or should I get my mom and siblings go in together or 4 separate cases?
