Q: what do i do if my 16 year old leaves his fathers house?
My 16 year old left his dad and came to my house. His dad has been threatening to kick him out for at least 6 months. His dad has text me two different times about him coming to stay with me. I am more than willing and happy to have my son come live with me because I understand the living situation. His dad said he is going to file a missing persons report tmrw. what should I do. My son does not want to go back to his dads.
It sounds like you might need an emergency motion to modify whatever underlying custody agreement / order is currently in place.
If no order is in place, then your kid can stay with either parent.
