I’m 17. I’m two months away from being 18. I’m moving out and teaming with a trusted friend as a roommate and I’m going back to work and I have a small business as well. I just don’t want to be at home anymore. Is there not much a policeman can do since I’m so close to being 18? I... Read more »
Forget emancipation. Not enough time to make that work. Until you are 18, your parents rule the roost. Should an adult help you move out before you are 18, that person could be charged with interference with custody. It's only 2 months. Focus on the positive things you should be doing...Read more »

You and/or your grandson have options. Without more information, it is hard to answer whether or not he is entitled to emancipation. You may also have grandparent custodial rights. You should seek out a lawyer knowledgable in these areas.
You could expose yourself to being arrested for interference with custody if you take in a minor with permission of the parents. If the child needs help, you can contact authorities in your area who can investigate.
I'm sorry, but I do not hold out much hope that she will be successful. In 31 years of practice, I have personally known of only 2 emancipations being granted. She must be able to show that she has gainful employment and can pay for everything she needs, rent, car, insurance, food, medical,...Read more »

DFAC stated they are spoiled and there isn't anything they could do they need to go home. These girls are freefall, stressed and emotionally damaged and the parents will not allow them to live with the grandparents who will make sure they focus on school and treated correctly.
Considering DFAC is involved they should know the details of the case. If they felt there was no abuse going on then that is what is going to likely stand. At their age, they could go speak to their school counselor and see what suggestions he/she may have. Perhaps the family can get some...Read more »

I’m sorry to that you are not happy at home with your mom. At 14 you can’t just run away and decide where to live. Your dad could consult with an attorney to see if there are options for him to get primary custody. Try talking to your mom about the problems and see if it helps.
