Hello,

1. In which U.S. jurisdiction/state are you located?

Criminal charges would do nothing to stop her. But a civil suit would.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Are you there?
Employment Lawyer: socrateaser, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Sorry for the delay. I was helping another customer while waiting for your response. If you are seeking a civil action against the alleged perpetrator, then it would be your child's lawsuit. She would sue for "intentional infliction of emotional distress." You would have to ask the court to appoint a "guardian ad litem" (i.e., a person who will represent your daughter in the lawsuit), because your daughter can't represent herself in court.

If you need a link to a reputable lawyer referral service, please let me know and I will be happy to provide further info.

I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer -- otherwise, the website retains your entire payment, and I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf.

Thanks again for using Justanswer!

I wanted to know simply if there is a presidence for a suit. If she can be stopped. This answer is basically get an attorney.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I can hire her an attorney right. This is civil.
Employment Lawyer: socrateaser, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

I just provided you with the name of the cause of action: intentional infliction of emotional distress. So, that's not simply a "get an attorney" answer.

I'm really trying to help you here. Yes, a civil action for intentional infliction of emotional distress is a valid claim for the sort of conduct you are describing.

What else would you like to know?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I am pretty sure guardians at liem are only done her in child custody cases or in family court.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sorry ( done here)
Employment Lawyer: socrateaser, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

A guardian ad litem means, literally, the guardian for the litigation. Guardians are appointed in family law to represent the child's best interests, where neither parent appears to be capable of doing so. However, in a civil action, a guardian ad litem is equally applicable where the plaintiff is a minor child or an incapacitated adult.

I hope this clarifies my original answers.
