Ely,This one kind of crosses family law and educational law.I need to know the TEA citations that deal with a disabled person (ADHD, and/or Special ed) being accused of being a bully and suspended without any hearing or anything.

My son-n-law came into our home a few days ago high on drugs

My son-n-law came into our home a few days ago high on drugs and came into my husband and my bedroom. We were taking an afternoon nap at the time. He was very mad about a telephone conversation he and I had earlier and he was yelling, cursing just acting really crazy. It was really hard to make much sense of why he was so mad. The yelling woke my husband and he ask him what his problem was. My son-n-law was so angry and shaking. He then began to yell at my husband and ran over to our bed and hit my husband so hard around the L temple area that it almost knocked him unconscious. My husband pushed him away long enough to get up from the bed. A physical altercation ensued. My daughter and 4 grandchildren were also present. These are not this man's children. The altercation continued into the hallway where I attempted to get between them and my son-n-law was hitting me. My son-n-law turned and ran out the back door. My husband thought he may be going to get a weapon or something. It happened so fast and my husband was kind of out of it from the initial hit to his head. He got up and got the shotgun and went outside where my son-n-law was in his car spinning his tires in the yard tearing up the grass and just still acting really crazy. My husband shot at the car and my son-n-law stopped the car, got out of it and started running toward my husband. My husband shot toward him but he did not hit him. The police was called and both were taken to jail. Bond was set the next day and they were released to separate homes. My husband was charged with aggravated assault and child endangerment in the third degree. My son-n-law was charged with aggravated battery and child endangerment in the third degree. My husband has a clean record other than a DUI about 15 years ago. My son-n-law has has several drug charges in recent years. Please tell me what do we need to do. My husband known the DA in this area. Should we go talk to him. We really can't afford an attorney but we are so upset and scared that he may go back to jail or something. We don't know what to do. His bond is 20,000.00. Please help if you can.

This is a question for TJ, Esq., AttorneyHi T.J.,The

This is a question for TJ, Esq., Attorney Hi T.J., The Intake Officer of the Special Services Unit (SSU) for the district of the J&DR court in my county, told my wife - we are separated - that I had been to see him to file paperwork relating to temp possession of marital home. The reason why this is significant is that we were in court recently for a protective order hearing - the order is against my wife - and her attorney asked me directly if I had been to the SSU on the day in question to file the paperwork. I answered 'Yes'. This played a part in convincing the judge to dissolve the order. I did not tell a soul that I had been there that day. Not only that, I learned that the intake officer lives directly behind me and knows my wife. I had only recently moved to where I live now. It is my wife's home town. I wish to file a complaint as I am sure that the Intake Officer is not allowed to disclose such information. Not only that, I did ask him if he had spoken to my wife. He denied it yet she filed custody paperwork for our child, and both his signature and my wife's appear on the paperwork. She was able to go in and see him to file while I was told that I had to make an appointment for the next day. Can I write a letter of complaint and to whom do I write to?

My son will be 16 in 5 days and has told me he is dropping

My son will be 16 in 5 days and has told me he is dropping out of school as soon as he turns 16. I was just informed by a Dean at his school he will be failing 2 classes this year, I'm sure this is a big part of the reason he wants to drop out as he doesn't want to repeat 10th grade. Can a 16 year old drop out of school?Will anything be done to me, I'm his single father?Thank you
