    Realistically, your "case" sounds like a loser. However, you should consult employment lawyers in your city for a consultation.

    Caveat emptor. Even if you are a student just graduating from high school. In your case, you appear significantly older. You can sue, but will probably not succeed unless you can establish fraud by a preponderance, and one must take the contract language into account. You should consult a local contract attorney.

  • What legal rights do college students have if they are being bullied by their professors?

    The school is ignoring and not pursuing the cases of bullying. What legal options can one pursue

    Marco’s Answer

    You should speak with the department chair about it, having specific examples and demonstrating a pattern. Presumably, this is done in class so there will be witnesses. Don't expect too much, as students are notorious now for bringing all sorts of allegations about conduct, real or imagined, seen as biased, racist, prejudicial, etc., often prompted by a bad grade, so administrators are keen to flush those away rapidly.

    Aside from the low possibility of success against the attorney, why do you want to sue him instead of the school? Just change attorneys.

    You may report the abuse to that county's humane law enforcement officer, who is often the police, a dog warden, or an enpowered humane society, as the case may be. You should be ready to supply evidence and possible testimony.

    Marco’s Answer

    A child may become emancipated in a number of ways by operation of law, by conduct inconsistent with remaining in the parent-child relationship under the same roof, or through assistance from the parents. The parents, however, shall remain financially responsible for support. The usual situation is the child moves out, can't support herself/himself, applies for public assistance, gets it, and the county petitions for child support payable to the county. The questions presented in your question makes me suspect you are the person seeking emancipation. Take care, you might get what you wish for.
