  1. If the child is "watching" classes on a computer, the teachers are taking a break while another is teaching. In an e-class, it is unlikely the classes are happening in real time though. It seems unusual that these classes have to be taken at these exact times and half the reason such online schools exist is for the flexibility of taking instruction whenever is convenient. It also seems unlikely that a student in any high school, would have only rigorous academic classes and for 6 hours a day, when traditional high school, doesn't operate that way, but your mileage may vary.
  2. I don't know why she won't accept the mail and move on. You are incorrect that she MUST accept the letter you provided or a phone call from a parent as proof of residency. When I suggested your parent all, it was to find out what is necessary to satisfy the residency requirement and perhaps as k why there is any confusion. As you are a minor, the AP does not have to and should not, relay that information to you. It is possible the phone call from a parent will clear up the situation, but it is also not unusual to require parents appear in person. Administrators tend to put in long hours so it is entirely possible if your parent calls, they can arrange a time to come in around their work hours.
  3. It is legal to require verification that you live in the district. I have no idea why the school now believes you do not live there. Perhaps someone reported that you do not. Either way, this is something your parents need to resolve as you are a minor.
  4. I'm not certain how old you are, but if you are under 18, you are unlikely to have any bills in your name which establish residency and it is normal for parents to be the ones responsible for registration and verification. If your district requires all students to be registered by a parent or guardian, as is the case in 99% of districts, yours can be required as well. I'm not sure how you know that the other students have handled this on their own and only shown a copy of a bill. I have no idea why the AP doesn't think you live where you do. When your parent called to ask the AP why this was the case, what was your parent told? Surely one of them can spare a few minutes to make a phone call to the school.
  5. If the kid is at home and essentially watching class happen, or even using the computer, why can't the child eat while in "class" if this is an issue? Ohio has regulations for teacher lunch breaks, but ironically, not for students. Still, if your child is home it stands to reason that eating a sandwich and piece of fruit would be entirely possible while taking classes.
  6. I have a feeling we aren't getting the whole story here as no one attempts guardianship simply because someone takes a walk a few times. You mention "we" are moving out of state. Why are YOU moving if you are not dependent on your mother? You are over 18. Live where you want to live and manage your own affairs. If you can do that, she can't get guardianship.
  7. Yes, they can withhold your wages.
  8. You REALLY need to speak with an immigration attorney. Stat.
  9. Gossiping isn't illegal. The police at whatever college you refer to do not care one bit if someone gossips about you. They do not investigate who starts rumors. The only party who can establish whether or not someone has a "right" to be on a campus is the leadership of that campus. Most are open to the public, regardless of student status. How your campus defines harassment can vary and it typically defined in a student handbook, or code of conduct. It is unclear what type of punitive damages you are seeking, but colleges do not assess punitive damages to be awarded to a victim. That would be the job of a court of law, if and when appropriate. Nothing you have shared would indicate you have any sort of recourse in the courts.
  10. Again, what kind of release are you talking about? The insurance carrier approves and pays for medical treatment. The employer can tell them not to cover something until they are blue in the face, but it isn't the employer's decision to make. It is doubtful the employer even knows what treatment has been requested or recommended. The carrier can share whether there is justification to pay you lost time benefits.
  11. Long story short, you don't get along with your parents and it is affecting your child in a negative way. The solution is simple. You are an adult and appears that you are into your 30's. Move out on your own, support yourself and your son, and limit or eliminate the time you spend with your parents. That's it. Nothing you describe is illegal in any way.
  12. You use a lot of terms that do not mean what you seem to think that they mean. Suppose you describe what happened in simple English, and the actual damages you suffered and we might be able to point you in the proper direction for any recourse.
  13. Only one party pays you for time missed due to a work injury; either your employer, or the insurance carrier. If the insurance carrier is the one paying, yes, there are certain criteria which must be met before the days are compensable under the state WC regulations. Generally, you must have been taken off work by a doctor who has certified that you are totally disabled, or can only work if the employer can offer you modified duties and the employer is not able to offer work within those restrictions. I'm not sure what type of release you are referring to. Time spent in treatment when you are not also totally disabled would not be covered under WC, nor would days when you opt to stay home when there is work available.
  14. Your post is extremely difficult to read, and not just because of the font. I gather you and your ex husband share legal custody of your children, and he has primary physical custody as you are an addict. If your employer is not paying you, you find other employment and file with the DOL/DLSE for unpaid wages. I have no idea who you moved in with or why but it doesn't appear relevant. If you have a current custody order, and your ex is not following it, you will have to file in court for contempt of the order. The police do not enforce custody agreements. That said, if you are homeless and suffering from untreated depression, your ex has an excellent chance of getting the order changed to reduce the time you are entitled to see the children. The children are entitled to time with both parents, but they are also entitled to a safe, clean, and stable environment.
