I am a step-grandfather who obtain join custody of a teenager to facilitate him finishing high school. Parent did not divulge that the child hard drug problems leading to the reason he was leading school. The pretext was he missed he friend and want to graduate with them, this was two months before the end of the 10th grade. After he came to live with the Grandmother and I we found out the he had not finished the 9th grade because of truancy and discipline problems, did not find ou that he had been bust for bringing drug to school, until the first high school we tried to get him entered into refused to take him because of his school record. He had continuous run ins with teaches, truancy problems, very poor grades and drug usage in the 11 th grade. We tried to get him professional help to find out that the only doctor in the area was still owed $5000 by his custodial parent
. He then started illegally transferring money from my bank account into his, (to the tune of several hundred dollars). I sent him back to the mother
and now she is sueing me for full medical and dental coverage, and legal fees. What are my rights and my obligations to Step-Grandchild?
JA: Because education law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Yes, and the child has been with the mother and stepfather for several weeks now...
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: We just got the papers over the last two days along with a restraining order
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: At no time would the mother talk to us about the child, she would either have him talk to us or she would text.... Nothing about him be treated by a behaviorist for the last several years.
