Ashley female, age 17, USA Dear Ashley, If both people having consensual sex are the same age, it's not statutory rape.
But it may be confusing to some people about the term "minor" and the concept of when it is "legal" to have sex. I read that as long as there is no more than 3 years' difference, it is legal. Confused female, age 16, USA Dear Confused, It is illegal to have sex with him, because the age of consent in California is 18.
"Age of consent" and "age of majority" are sometimes legally distinct, depending on where you live: Dear Panel, I am 16 and I am dating an 18 year old. If someone were to press charges against him for statutory rape, the two years' age difference would make him guilty of a misdemeanor, which carries lesser penalties than If he were three years older, when it would be a felony.
In 2001, Tennessee’s parenting plan law created parenting plans.
Sole custody as a legal term was changed and primary residential parent (PRP) was created (and PRP means something different).
