My 26 year old son has to perform 32 hours of community service that is being required by a court in Louisiana. He will perform it in Florida. We are both working on a couple of public builds for Habitats for Humanity. Obviously he will get credit for the time he works. Can I donate the hours that I work to him to count for his hours. It does not sound reasonable, but in the back of my mind it seems I have heard of this happening before. Thanks
You need to contact the LA court, but probably not. Your son has to do the hours, not you or anyone else.
I seriously doubt you can "donate" hours for your son. It is an interesting concept though. You should contact LA though b/c their laws are unlike any other State. Who knows, it may work but I seriously doubt it.
