Robin R. Gregory's answer This is a complex issue and no "one way" to go about accomplishing your goal. Also, I would need to get more information before determining what is the "best" way to proceed. I suggest you retain an attorney and discuss your options. I have seen biological fathers who have no interest in the child, give-up parental rights when faced with paying child support. But that is just one route you could take - possibly under the Uniform Desertion and Non-Support Act (HRS 575-2)
Robin R. Gregory's answer I suggest you get an attorney and don't do anything until you speak confidentially, with your attorney. It is illegal to smoke or otherwise ingest marijuana in the State of Hawai'i, unless you have a prescription and it is illegal in the United States. I don't know why CPS would "over look" illegal drug use in an investigation. Normally, if CPS suspects you of illegal drug use, they will open a case. Once you give a UA, you cannot take it back. Get an attorney.
Robin R. Gregory's answer If your father is the only parent with parental rights over you, then it would make sense your father's would be the only signature needed for consent for a minor to marry. Or, you can wait until you are 18 and you don't need any parent's signature. Good luck to you.
Robin R. Gregory's answer If the real property is in another country, the real property is probably governed by the laws of that country. Owners of property can generally give or sell real property to anyone they want. If it is a case of a child using "undue influence" to "force" parents to give property, that is another matter. Still, the laws of the country where the property is situated, likely govern.
