  1. If my child injures someone while driving under the influence of alcohol, can I be held liable?

    If you allow your child to drive a family-owned vehicle, and your child injures someone as a result of consuming alcohol or drugs, you could be liable in civil court for damages.

     
  2. Am I responsible for minors using alcohol in my home?

    Yes, you are responsible for minors using alcohol in your home. It is possible for you to be brought to court on criminal charges and also for monetary damages in the case of a civil suit when alcohol or other drugs are used by minors (with the exception of your own children, if you are home) on your own private property.

     
  3. Can the court system help me if I cannot control my child who is using drugs?

    Yes, a minor beyond the control of his parents may be deemed “unruly” and subject to the jurisdiction of the juvenile court.
