We are giving a set of hors d’oeuvre forks and knives to our daughter to take back from Washington to California this Christmas. Is this ok to put in her carry-on case, or should we just mail them to her ?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a WA lawyer about this?

We are giving a set of hors d-ourves forks and knives to our daughter to take back from Washington to California this Christmas. Is this ok as carry-on or should we mail it instead ? Thank you

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken so far?

None. The set is still in its original packaging.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I can’t think of anything else.

Good afternoon, I am an attorney expert with the JustAnswer website, and former Prosecutor for the State Attorney's Office. I have a near 100% customer satisfaction rate, and I'll be answering your questions today. Keep in mind this is for informational purposes only and we do not have an attorney-client relationship. Please allow me just a few minutes to review your question, thank you!

No, unfortunately your daughter would not be able to take this on the plane with her, even though it's in the original packaging still.

It would be much better to mail it to her, rather than run the risk of having it confiscated by airport authorities.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

My Expert was fast and seemed to have the answer to my taser question at the tips of her fingers. Communication was excellent. I left feeling confident in her answer.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
