Q: 

What happens when an 19 year old beats up a 17 year old?

A:  State laws say 16 is and adult to some saying 18 is emancipated. Normally the one who threw the first punch i to blame so if the 17 year old is trying to take on the 19 year old, throws the first punch, e 19 year old has a reason to protect himself. If the 19 year old clearly assaulted the 17 year old then the 19 year old goes to jail.

Q: 

Can an 18 year old adopt a 17 year old or a 21 year old adopt a 17-20 year old?

A:  A person can BE adopted for their entire life... those who say otherwise are truly, and sadly, misinformed. In this question, though, you are trying to ''smoosh'' two aspects of adoption together that do not belong together. First of all, you canNOT adopt at 18... at least not anywhere in the United States unless you are adopting a younger sibling or a spouse''s child -- even then, the court may not grant the adoption. You have to be 21 to do a ''regular'' adoption and then you have to prove stability -- mental, physical (health), emotional, financial and environmental. In addition to the above, each state has a requirement (it varies, as it is determined by the individual states) regarding how many years OLDER the adopter must be than the person they wish to...

Q: 

Is it illegal for a 17 year old to be with a 15 yeard old?

A:  yea its legal I am assuming you mean you had sex with a 17 year old. In most American jurisdictions this would be considered statutory rape on the part of the 17 year old, however such cases are usually not prosecuted unless there are other considerations. If the other person were over 18 prosecution would be a lot more likely. Age 17 is borderline. It''s statutory rape, a serious felony. And why is this under immigration? Anyone involved in this on a temporary visa, an immigrant, an illegal alien, etc? A felony like this can get the person deported and permanently barred from the country. It is a crime of moral turpitude, and renders the person ineligible for...

Q: 

Can an immagrant become a legal resident after living in the U.S for 17 years?

A:  You forgot to include the most important part to your question--Is this person legal and how old are they? If they are legal--after 17 years--they should of already gotten their green card and should be already a naturalized citizen or working towards becoming one, so, if you are asking this question, we can only assume this person is illegal--the answer to that one would depend on the age and status of how they came to be in this country. This person knows the rules, they also know if they are legal or not. Turning 18 will not make any difference in legal status. If the immigrant remains in the US, he or she risks deportation and a ten-year ban on reentry. If the immigrant has a younger sibling who is a US citizen,...

Q: 

Good first car for a 17 year old?

A:  It should be 4-door, 4-cyls, not sporty. I would prefer Honda or Toyota... First time drivers usually have much more expensive car insurance, and it depends from car.

Q: 

I am looking for a halfway house in Michigan or elsewhere for a 17 year old sex offender.?

A:  Yes there is life after jail and the released offender should be able to get some community counseling that might help adjusting to life without reoffending. There should be a teenage hot-line near you and you could phone them and ask for advice in finding a shelter for a teenager. Once the offender realizes the errors he/she made, accepts responsibility without blaming others then he/she will be able to move on and become a productive citizen in our society. Takes a lot of work but good things aren''t necessarily free, if earned then they are appreciated. Good luck I know this doesn''t answer your question but I had to comment. They ruined his life at 17 years old?? Just goes to show how these laws are getting out...
