When Should You Talk to a Lawyer?
If your child has been accused of misconduct that could lead to being expelled, you’ll want to know how to approach the discipline proceedings and protect your child’s rights. If you don’t take part in the hearing, you could lose your right to challenge the expulsion. An attorney who specializes in education law should be able to explain the local rules and help you through the process. If your child has disabilities, consider consulting an attorney who’s experienced in special education law.
