If the abuse is *physical* abuse, you should contact the Children & Youth agency for the county in which your sister lives. Even if it's only mental/emotional abuse, I'd contact that agency and let someone know what's going on. Hopefully they'll open up an investigation and get to the bottom of...Read more »

He has the rights of parenthood if he can prove that which I assume he can. However they are limited, and if he has threatened you getting a pfa would be a first step, and you will need to speak with family relations and ideally a family law attorney about other options.
A notice should be sent out in advance of his 18th birthday, asking his mother, and I believe you as well, whether he should be removed from the order at 18. Obviously, the answer is no because he's not been graduated from high school. If the mother says to remove him at at graduation, then he'll...Read more »
