If my 25yr old son is driving and I (60) am in back seat and open a beer and drink it unknown to my son. Can my son be charged with anything.

Lawyer's Assistant: What were you charged with exactly? Do you have any upcoming court dates?

Hello, thank you for the question.

Does this hypothetical matter as to the ages or parent/child relationship?

What province are you in? What is VIC?

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.

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.
