Legal Topics: Parents' Responsibility for Actions of Their Children

Statutes: (Additional statutes, regulations & opinions may apply to your specific situation.)

  • Minnesota Statutes, index topics Parents and Guardians of Minors. Look for the subtopic of Liability.
  • Resources: (Print resources are available at the Law Library and in county law libraries around the state.)

  • Dunnell Minnesota Digest, Minnesota's legal encyclopedia, Parent and Child §2.04, Duty to control conduct of child; liability for child's torts.
  • Youth and the Law, from the House Research Department, treats the topic on page 92.

  • DISCLAIMER:  As librarians and not lawyers, we can suggest resources but cannot give legal advice (such as which form to file), or legal opinions, (such as how a statute might apply to particular facts.)  To do so could be considered the unauthorized practice of law.  Even though we try to suggest materials that will be of help, further research is usually required to find a complete and correct answer.  For many questions, the best answer may be to consult an attorney.  For links to resources on finding an attorney click here.
