OPen House Parties

Parties are often used to mark cheerful occasions. Hosting a party is an exciting yet stressful time. The host is the facilitator of the celebration providing a good time to friends and family.

By the end of the party, the excitement and stress may seem to be over, but be mindful that in order to prevent the after party from taking place in the hospital or even in court, you must abide by the “Open House Parties” law.

Did you know that in Florida, there is a law that states that it is a criminal offense to allow minors to use or possess alcohol or drugs? This law is called the “Open House Parties” law. Violation of the law could result in up to a first-degree misdemeanor, if a person is injured in an automobile accident, slip and fall, or another incident happens by the intoxicated minor. 

A person that has the authority to own, manage or control a residence is liable if:

  • Alcoholic beverages or drugs are possessed or consumed at the residence by a minor
  • The person that is of drinking age knows that an alcoholic beverage or drug is in the possession of or being consumed by a minor
  • The person fails to take reasonable steps preventing the possession or consumption of the alcoholic beverage or drug
