My mother adopted a child when she was 6 months old. When

My mother adopted a child when she was 6 months old. When she turns 12 she began stealing from my mom and hoarding items (some stolen) in her room. Now she is 17 years old has crashed my mom's car, stolen over $10,000 worth of goods bought online and sneaks out all the time. She has threatened her on many occasions. My mother is old and I feel is being abused.We have included the police in this as well on four occasions. First was for theft, second for totalling a brand new car that she stole, third for sneaking out, and four for stealing my mother's identity again after criminal charges were filed. The criminal system will not get the child out of the house and adoption would take way too long.We as a family have tried everything including counseling, psychologists, and taken her phone away ect. She just uses my mom's ssn to open a new credit card or buys a new phone online using my mother's stolen phone or her friends.After 3+ years we have resorted to filing criminal charges including elder abuse and grand theft. Two felonies.What options do we have? The courts and police will not incarcerate her because she is a minor.

I filed a motion childrens (2) mother to be charged with

I filed a motion for my childrens (2) mother to be charged with contempt (this would be my second time) as she denies and does not abide by the court ordered parenting time schedule. She was served with a hearing date ( i filed on a Monday and by Wednesday the judge had scheduled a hearing) assuming this was upsetting to her that Friday I meet with her (in public) to pick up my children for my parenting time. I always record every interaction on my phone since she has tried to accuse me of abuse in the past so I have her on video yelling and basically cursing at me while our children got from her car to mine. My son then proceeded to tell me "If you are going to put my mom in jail, I will put YOU in jail" then grabbed my arm and jerked my hand while it was on the wheel. I pulled over immediately, my children stepped out of the car and started walking away, I pursued them asking them to please get into the car to talk. I took my sons phone as he was recording me which upset him, he then chocked me. I placed my hands in the air to protect myself form any possible charges, I didnt even try to push him off of me. Police were called by people passing by saying he was attacking me and giving the police a clear description of what he was doing and there was no allegation I did anything to him. He was taken to Juvenile Detention and I was let go after I was cited with child abuse with no injury (which I have a hearing separate from the contempt hearing). Their mother has now filed a motion to restrict my parenting time all together which I responded the court deny. How can I prepare for the Contempt hearing after all these events have taken place? She has since denied my parenting time twice since the incident and I have a scheduled CPS appointment at my house this Monday. Advise would be greatly appreciated.JA: OK.

Can I legally kick my 17-year-old out? I've gotten kicked out

Can I legally kick my 17-year-old out? I've gotten kicked out of two places because of his behavior and he has been kicked out the homes of every family member that he's lived with. According to dcf, the only way he can leave is if they file a 51-a on me for neglect but I have literally run out of options for placing him somewhere.

My child is in a juvenile detention center and is fixing to be released. His father (the custodial parent) has told the detention center that he wants to put my child in a halfway house and not come home. His spouse said that she does not feel safe with him coming home. We have joint custody of the children. Does this mean he is giving up his rights? My son is 17 yrs old. We live in Texas

I have a 15 YO son with PTSD, Asburgers, Anger management,

I have a 15 YO son with PTSD, Asburgers, Anger management, Depression and anxiety. He is currently in a Residential Behavioral treatment hospital. They called me this morning and let me know they are discharging him. The doctor said he is better suited for a juvenile detention center and he needs to come home and get in trouble with the law. He is out of control and not getting better so they have decided he's not right for the program or facility any more. He has attempted suicide 4 times and also been homicidal. He is violent with the cat's and dog's and his little sister. We are afraid of him. Can an attorney help us? If so what kind? What are our options?
