EWTN Catholic Q&A
Question from celine on 02-05-2014:

I know this is not the right forum but I need a quick response and know you're very knowledgeable... My daughter got intentionally hurt at school by a classmate. She got hospitalized and I can press charges. My question is: should I seek human justice and press charges so the other girl can face the consequences or should I just leave it up to God?

Answer by Judie Brown on 02-07-2014:


If you daughter was hurt by an intentional act perpetrated against her, you should seek justice for your daughter. Those who commit violence against others should be help accountable in this world by those responsible for justice. Defending your daughter comes first.
