What To Do If Your Child Is Suspended From School

Finding out that your child has been suspended from school is very traumatic to both the child and the parent. Suspension can arise from issues of drugs, inappropriate sexual conduct, or bullying, to name just a sample.

Every public school district has rules and regulations about student conduct. Your child has defined rights as to how discipline can be imposed. It is important to consult with a lawyer at the earliest possible point of this school problem. An experienced lawyer who regularly handles these matters can suggest actions that you and your child should take.

A suspension or expulsion can have serious consequences for your child’s future and can even become the basis for court involvement. Addressing these issues at the earliest possible time is critical.

At Paule, Camazine & Blumenthal, P.C. our lawyers are able to provide you legal counsel and welcome the opportunity to help your child and you through this difficult time.
