Yes, a parent or other legal guardian is responsible for the safety/security of their child. Especially if the child comes into any harm, the parent could face criminal charges for child abuse or child neglect.

Easy answer: it is illegal for underage individuals to consume alcoholic beverages anywhere in Illinois. In some jurisdiction (like Naperville), the individual(s) who own or rent the property where the alcohol is consumed are held legally liable, whether they sanctioned or knew of the illegal activity. The fines and penalties are severe and cannot be waived by the presiding judge.

Illinois is the "liable state" which pays the benefit, but you can also request Indiana help you get it from Illinois.

No. If the car turning left is in his proper lane and has the proper signal he is not liable.

The parents are not liable for the damage. Parents can only be liable for the actions of a child who is under the age of 18.

No. Actually you're more liable to see things when you're younger

You file for unemployment in the "liable state". In this case, you work in Iowa, the "liable state", but because of the interstate unemployment compensation laws, you can file in a state other than the "liable" one and they will work with the other state to help you.

I believe that if he took the truck then he is liable for what ever happens to it, but on the other hand you didn't give him permission, then your liable because its your truck. Unfortunately I believe you need to prove he took it without consent, and that would involve pressing charges.

It would be a violation of copyright law. Only the person that created the work has the ability to determine how it is published. You do not need permission to publish information about a person that is true, otherwise you may be liable for liable.

yes but with the consent of other partners. Minor has the right to share the profit of the firm , but he is not liable to bear any lossess.

The legal age of consent has nothing to do with the age of the partner. Check with your local legislation so that you or your partner don't render yourselves liable to prosecution.

Your insurance would be liable. same qusetion but what if the car didn't have any insurance on it? In this case, both the driver and owner are in deep doo-doo. Injured parties will sue both.

(in the US) not without parental consent. Any tat artist that performs one on a minor is liable for a criminal charge of assault.

Almost 18, yes. The child can not move out without your consent and you are responsible for them and what they do until they are 18.

They'll go after the car's owner first. IF the driver has an insured vehicle, it would be secondary.

As it is the "liable state" they will keep being paid to you as long as you comply with their regulations and keep them informed as to your progress and earnings.

Internet service provider or "ISPs" provide Internet access service to customers such as storing data for their customers' use on a Usenet newsgroup server or a world wide web server.The ISP can be held liable if the activities of its customers are generally based on a knowledge of the customer's activity unaware of the behavior of its customer or ISP becomes aware of the customer's activity, or should have become aware of the activity with reasonable diligence, courts are much more likely to hold the ISP liable for its customer's actions.

The term 'Jail-bait' describes an attractive (in every aspect) girl who is below the age of sexual consent, therefore if herself and a man were to have intercourse, he would then be liable for rape, due to her being under the age of consent. The words are "jail bait." It means having sex with someone who is under the age of consent. You can go to jail.

Liable and flyable. I'm not liable if it's not flyable or not reliable!Plyable, Liable,

No, not unless the fiance's parents consent and they would most likely have to give up rights to you and your father so they are no long liable for their child

Yes, because the death does not really matter in terms of debt. One is responsible for any debts of their spouse anytime and all the time.

No, a co signor would not be liable. A co-buyer would be liable.

ANYONE who uses your personal information to gain access to an extension of credit or a loan WITHOUT YOUR PERMISSIONis guilty of FRAUD. It is up to you to file the police report, contact the creditor(s) and the credit reporting agencies (Equifax, TransUnion, & Experian). If you report the fraudulent activity immediately after becoming aware of the problem, the other party is liable and can be pursued for commission of a criminal act by the creditor(s). If you DO NOT report the fraudulent activity within a reasonable period of time (following your discovery of the crime) you may be viewed as having given "tacit consent", which means that because you knew and said nothing about it, the fraudulent activity was OK with you. (as though someone broke into your home and stole valuables - but you failed to report it) Then YOU may become liable. Individual state laws vary, but the fraud piece pretty much applies to all fifty states. Don't wait on this. The hole only gets deeper. I have witnessed this too many times.
